Article from the Pain Relief Clinic in Limerick: Massage Therapy Approaches
Massage Therapy #1: Sport’s Massage
Massage Therapy #2: Connective Tissue Massage
Massage Therapy #3: Deep Muscle Therapy
Sport’s Massage can be done pre- or post-event. Typically the goal is increased performance levels, improved recovery after the event and reduction in sport’s injuries. Today almost all high level teams use the facility of a sport’s massage therapist.
Tissue integrity is the primary goal of Connective Tissue Massage. It requires very strong anatomical knowledge of the therapist and it works on the connective tissue around the muscles and joints.
Deep Muscle Therapy works directly on muscle fibres. The goal is to restore correct tension levels to your muscles and as a result relieve muscular aches, tension and stiffness.
What can I expect during a Deep Tissue Massage in Limerick at the Pain Relief Clinic?
At the Pain Relief Clinic in Limerick, massage is performed through light clothing. Predominantly this is done on a custom treatment table but part of your work may be done on a chair if your neck and shoulders need to be addressed. During your treatment we work on your muscles and connective tissue around your joints to reduce and where possible eliminate your pain, aches, tension and stiffness. We will also work to restore full range of movement where this has become a problem.
