Welcome to Simply Massage.
Relaxation – massage manipulates the soft tissue of the body. Using relaxation techniques such as efluerage,pettrisage,long flowing strokes using hands and forearms, kneading, rolling to name a few. The skilled use of hands may decrease tension, flush fluids and produce deep relaxation.
Deep tissue – targets the deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue. Slower strokes, friction techniques across the grain of the muscle are used.
Sports therapy – a multitude of techniques and strokes are used at varying speeds and depths to suit an individual athlete, at any given stage of their training. Sports massage is more often than not, much firmer, faster and more specific. A cross – section of soft tissue, and /or energy manipulations, for the ultimate purpose of enhanced sports performance. Benefits of this type of therapy will assist the athlete in attaining the ultimate objectives.
