Purposes of Instrument Assisted Deep Tissue Massage

Purposes of Instrument Assisted Deep Tissue Massage.

We provide an alternative to the traditional Deep Tissue Massage Treatment that combines two kinds of sports therapy such as  Instruments Assisted Deep Tissue Massage and Sports Massage.

Instrument Assisted Deep Tissue Massage is a beneficial treatment for many circumstances:

  1. Post Sports Injury 
  2. Post Surgery 
  3. Muscle Tear 
  4. Tendon Adhesion
  5. Tendon Calcification
  6. Scar Tissue

This technique utilizes special stainless steel tools with particular shapes and dimensions to fit all the body’s muscles, joints, and tendons.

This sports therapy treatment utilizes special techniques of Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization ( IASTM ) that aim to reduce pain and increase mobility by reducing friction among different tissues such as muscle, fascia, and tendons.

By mobilizing the soft tissue, we stimulate a localized inflammatory response.

This inflammatory response facilitates the reabsorption of fibrotic tissue and the healing process.

Thanks to these tools we can ease faster and better all the possible muscle tension, stiffness, and knots. Furthermore, we can reduce the number of treatments and so speed up the recovery time.

This treatment helps by breaking down restrictive tissues such as scar tissue and adhesions that are common issues after recurrent sports injuries or an injury that has not been treated properly.

IASTM can facilitate the healing process by increasing blood circulation. Increased blood flow helps to bring more nutrients, and oxygen into the injured area, and remove the waste cells.

Sometimes there is particular muscle tension, mainly the older ones, that only with classical massages are very difficult to treat and It needs many treatments to completely ease them. Thanks to these tools and the expertise of our sports therapists, we can sort these old muscle tensions out easier and faster.

Heat Therapy is applied during the treatment to increase muscle relaxation which is a further help in addition to the instruments used in this special Deep Tissue Massage.


General Benefits of Deep Tissue Massage

Deep tissue massage therapy is beneficial in releasing chronic muscle tension and reducing muscle pain. It is perfect to reduce muscle soreness and stiffness too.

The focus is on the deepest layers of muscle tissue, tendons, and fascia (the protective layer surrounding muscles, bones, and joints).

Deep Tissue Massage is a useful practice both for the prevention and cure of musculoskeletal injury, muscle pain, back pain, and shoulder and neck pain.

We perform the most advanced massage techniques, use the most advanced tools available, to reach the best results, and personalize the treatment according to the patient’s needs.

​1. Increase Blood Perfusion.

​2. Increase Muscles Flexibility.

​3. Increase Joints Flexibility.

​4. Decrease Muscles and Joint Frictions.

​5. Reduce Muscle Pain.

​6. Increase Muscle Power.

​8. Improve the Range of Motion of the joints.

    Massimo was amazing! He takes the time to analyse the whole body to detect the source of the problem. He immediately pressed on the different tension points, and takes the time to do the deep massage! I really recommend his professionalism and expertise. I could feel the effects as soon as the massage was over. Thank you!

    I decided to get a sports massage kind of ad-hoc after seeing lots of positive reviews, and I'm glad I did because it turned out to be the best decision of the day. Massimo is extremely welcoming and knowledgeable - I got to learn a bit about muscles and what I need to improve going forward so that I minimize the chance of injury at the gym. Overall a superb experience - I'll definitely be back for more sessions.

  • Massimo is very knowledgeable and systematic in his treatment approach, looking to solve the cause of the issue and not just the symptoms. I have been seeing him for a number of issues stemming from various injuries that have built up over time. I have had immediate relief from pain after every session and improved mobility and form due to his treatments. I frequently recommend him to friends and family who require physiotherapy and related treatment.

    My partner has been a regular at Massimo's and always speaks very highly of him so when I had an issue with pins and needles and pain in my fingers and hand, he was my first point of call. He did a detailed assessment from my neck down my spine and all the way along the arm to my fingers. He cleared any knots I had and meticulously worked through it all. He also recommended follow-up exercises and treatments. I came out really feeling the difference and a day later, everything feels so much better.

    I have acquired a number of injuries through a series of sporting pursuits that cause lower back pain and muscle fatigue. In seeking treatment I have been to number of clinics but not one of them has been as good as Mr Salus Sporting Lab. Massimo is a genuine expert and gives the best sports massage I have ever experienced. I would wholeheartedly recommend him and now see him on a frequent basis.

    Massimo works wonders, I won't run a race without him massaging all the aches away beforehand. Perfect for getting race ready! And for general body maintenance.
