Difference between sports and deep tissue massage



In a nut shell deep tissue massage is a massage treatment focusing on deeper muscles and increasing blood flow - it can help reduce fresher / smaller adhesions or ‘knots’, it’s great for minor aches and pains. It is generally more restorative and restful than a Sports Treatment, though your body may feel a little tired afterwards.

Sports massage therapists have an extra level of anatomy knowledge that helps to treat clients recovering from all injuries, not just those you’ve gotten from sport! They can also help to break down those historic ‘knots’ and any large areas of adhesions. It is not necessarily that relaxing as a process, though it can leave you feeling mighty good!

I like to think of deep tissues massage as a bit of a steam roller, it stretches you out and works your muscles deeply; while sports massage is more of a cherry picker, able to precisely pick through your muscles to find problem areas and bring you back to peak condition.
