Sports Massage is the management, manipulation and rehabilitation of soft tissues of the body including muscles, ligaments and tendons.
This therapy is very popular amongst sportsmen and women when dealing with injuries or the prevention thereof. Everyday minor injuries can still be extremely painful and may seriously affect your occupation, sport or quality of life. If not treated properly at an early stage, they can lead to a more serious long-term condition. Massage can treat the majority of minor musculoskeletal problems quickly and effectively.
Remedial Massage deals with any concern that arises from a cause other than a sporting activity. This could be occupational or recreational, and often results in poor posture and muscle imbalances. The techniques used to address these problems are the same as those used in Sports Massage.
Deep tissue massage is a type of massage therapy that focuses on realigning deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue.

Some benefits of deep tissue massage include:
- Breaking down
- Improving blood pressure
- Reducing chronic pain
- Increasing joint mobility
- Reducing muscle tension
During a deep tissue massage, the massage therapist will use slow, deliberate strokes that focus pressure on layers of muscles, tendons, or other tissues deep under your skin. This type of massage is not only relaxing, but it can also be quite therapeutic. It’s important to communicate with your massage therapist about the level of pressure you’re comfortable with, as deep tissue massage can be intense.

Frozen shoulder can be very painful and frustrating due to the decreased range of movement. It is not fully known what triggers Frozen shoulder but it can follow after a serious injury or operation.

However, with the Niel Asher Technique it has been found that this process can be greatly reduced with regular sessions and is much more likely to regain full movement.
