Swedish massage is the most popular massage there is. It’s a classic that will give you all the relaxation you need! 5 types of strokes make up the massage, the pressure can be as light or as firm as you like and it is perfect for unknotting your whole body and make you feel as light as a feather!

You can’t go wrong with a Swedish. It’s the classic – the best known and most popular option on which all other forms of massage are based.

You can choose to have your full body or just an area done. Back, neck and shoulders is popular as these get particularly tight from being at a computer all day. The pressure can be as light or firm as you like. Ask for what you’d like. Same goes for any areas that are off-limits due to injury or just feeling uncomfortable.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Once your male massage therapist has asked about your various aches and pains, they’ll leave the room so you can undress. Towels are provided to keep your body covered and to help it stay warm. The massage bed has head hole so that you’re comfortable lying face-down. The massage therapist might use bolsters or extra towels to support your body.

GOOD TO KNOW

Where Swedish massage is different from some of the more specialist kinds is that it’s all about relaxation and muscle tissue. A deep tissue or sports massage involves more pressure and works on the tendons and fascia (the protective layer surrounding the bones, joints) as well as muscles. Whichever type of massage you go for you really will enjoy it.

If you’re suffering from tensions and aches that cannot be solved by a classic Swedish massage then a deep tissue massage might be the answer you’re looking for! During a deep tissue massage, the pressure is stronger and concentrated on the problematic area which might lead to a little bit of discomfort. It is worth it though as it helps alleviate the pain in the long term!

Deep tissue is a type of massage therapy that is used to treat chronic tension and injuries from overuse, such as tennis elbow and carpal tunnel syndrome. Whilst some of the strokes are the same as in classic (Swedish) massage, the pace tends to be slower and pressure is applied more strongly, concentrated on problem areas. Practitioners may use their forearms, elbows, fingertips and knuckles as well as their hands in order to break-up adhesions. These bands of rigid tissue can cause pain and inflammation, and restrict movement and circulation in muscle tissue. You might have a stiff neck and upper back, lower back pain, tight legs or sore shoulders. Deep tissue massage works to realign the different layers of tissue, treating the tendons, ligaments and fascia (the protective layer of tissues which surrounds the bones, joints and muscles) as well as the muscles to release tension and provide pain relief.

IS IT FOR ME?

Deep tissue massage usually focuses on a specific problem, such as chronic muscle pain and injury rehabilitation. The list of conditions that can be effectively treated is extensive and includes whiplash and repetitive strain, postural problems and sciatica, sports injury and recovery from falls, muscle tension or spasm in the glutes, hamstrings, quads, rhomboids and upper back. This therapy has been found to be more effective in relieving osteoarthritis pain than a wide range alternatives, including exercise and physical therapy, prescription medications and over-the-counter drugs, chiropractic and acupuncture treatment, diet and glucosamine. It’s also recommended for fibromyalgia pain with an improvement in the range of motion often noticeable immediately. The benefits aren’t just muscle and pain-related, deep tissue massage treatment can lower blood pressure, heart rate and stress hormone levels. Massage is good for the mind as well as the body boosting mood and helping you relax.

DOES IT HURT?

This all sounds wonderful. You’re probably wondering if there’s a catch. Does deep tissue massage hurt? Is the gain is worth the pain? Will I be able to cope with it? At certain points in the treatment most people do experience some discomfort. That’s to be expected when the pressure is deep and direct on painful or injured areas. Scar tissue is being loosed and muscles lengthened, knots are being undone and sub-layers of muscle moved back into the right place. Taking a deep breath when especially tense areas are tackled can be helpful. It’s important to tell your massage therapist which areas are painful and if the soreness becomes too much. They can easily dial it down a bit or use some more oil to help the muscles relax. There’s benefit in having multiple treatments and giving your body a chance to adjust.

The benefits aren’t just muscle and pain-related, deep tissue massage treatment can lower blood pressure, heart rate and stress hormone levels.

There is usually some stiffness or tenderness after a deep tissue massage, but this shouldn’t last more than a day or two. Stretching can help to reduce this. You can also put ice on any painful areas. Drinking water also helps with muscle rehydration and to flush out the toxins that are released during the massage. It’s sensible to avoid strenuous activity immediately after a massage and to not eat a heavy meal before.

GOOD TO KNOW

Massage shouldn’t be done directly over bruised, inflamed or infected skin, rashes or wounds, fragile bones, or areas of recent fractures, tumours or abdominal hernias. If you have recently had surgery, chemo or any other medical procedure, please check with your doctor before having a massage. Deep tissue massage (and other firm pressure) may not be suitable during pregnancy (unless the therapist is specifically trained) and may not be suitable for some people with osteoporosis. Massage can be unsafe if you have or at risk of forming blood clots as these can become dislodged. Deep tissue massage can have incredible effects in increasing mobility and reducing chronic pain.

Whether you’ve pulled a muscle or you’re determined to flip into a backbend as effortlessly as your eight-year-old niece, a sports massage can help you limber up. Using techniques from Swedish and shiatsu massages to rub away aches and pains, it’s adaptable, versatile and feels great afterwards.

WHAT TO EXPECT?

Like a deep tissue massage on steroids, a sports massage is ideal for anyone struggling with pain or discomfort in a specific area. Usually, a combination of Shiatsu and Swedish massage techniques are employed to ensure maximum benefits, but your therapist will tailor the treatment to your needs.

Whilst men’s sports massage is the ideal remedy for athletically-induced aches, it’s also brilliant as a preventative treatment for the active to keep injury at bay.

 

With an emphasis on increasing circulation and minimising inflammation, the massage can be slightly uncomfortable at times, but it shouldn’t become painful – be vocal and let your masseuse know if it feels uncomfortable.

Unlike other kinds of male massage, you’ll usually just be asked to remove any outer layers of clothing from the affected area, rather than totally stripping off. The treatment can be as speedy as thirty minutes, or it can take up to ninety minutes – it all depends on the ailment.

GOOD TO KNOW

The massage will also lower your blood pressure and heart rate, whilst boosting your lymphatic drainage system and helping to improve flexibility, making it ideal as a performance aid for seriously sporty types.

It’s a treatment probably best avoided if you have any open wounds, varicose veins, thrombosis, tumours, melanoma or haemophilia due to the nature of the massage, and it’s not suitable for anyone with infectious skin diseases.

BOOST YOUR WORKOUT WITH A MASSAGE

When it comes to stretching, even the most diligent of gym bunnies are bound to run into the odd muscle pain from time to time. Whether you favour high intensity exercise or the lighter exertion of yoga, all that working up a sweat can get your limbs and ligaments seriously knotted up. The solution? Deep Tissue and Sports Massage

HERE ARE 4 WAYS MASSAGE WILL BOOST YOUR WORKOUT

  1. It can make you more flexible
    Sports massage uses strong pressure to get right into problem areas deep within your muscles. By giving them a really good stretch, it helps lengthen the fibres. This will help your muscles relax, giving you better range of movement and improved flexibility. If you want to be the yoga teacher’s pet, start here.
  2. It shortens your recovery
    We’re all for an excuse to lie around on the sofa for a few days after pulling a muscle, but the guilt slowly creeps in. A sports massage can get you back in the gym more quickly. When your therapist works your muscles, it opens up pores in deep tissue membranes. This helps get rid of built-up lactic acid and lets fresh oxygen and nutrients in, which speeds up recovery.
  3. It stops injury in its tracks
    Men’s Sports massage increases the elasticity of your muscles and can heal damaged tissue. When you’re relaxed, you have a better range of motion, which reduces the chance of getting injured. A lesson we love to preach (even if we’ve not quite learned it yet): prevention is better than cure.
  4. It can improve your endurance
    If your workout has left you scared to sit down, we feel your pain. Getting a massage a day or two before a fitness class increases blood flow across your whole body. Extra oxygen flow can stop you getting out of breath so quickly. Just know when to stop in the spin class next time.
Tense, tight, muscles call for a massage. In the right hands your aches and pains can be massaged away within minutes. If you can’t seem to kick sore shoulders and aching joints, you need to get yourself to a massage salon, asap.
