What is the difference betwee Deep Tissue Massage Sports Massage?

Despite both types of massage therapy acting on the deeper layers of muscles and fascias, sports massage is a more thorough treatment of every single muscle of the area affected by muscle stiffness or muscle injury.

Deep Tissue Massage is indicated for general stiffness and muscle soreness while sports massage is more specific for muscle injury or for a treatment specific for a small muscle area.

We advise you to get a Deep Tissue Massage if you want a full-body massage with the aim to release general muscle tension.
If you have specific muscle pain or sports injury we advise you to get a sports massage instead.

Can Deep Tissue Massage reduce the chances of getting a muscle injury?

Yes, Deep Tissue Massage is the best massage therapy treatments to prevent any type of sports injury, muscle pain, and muscle stiffness.

Deep Tissue Massage, by treating muscle stiffness and tissue adhesions can improve the biomechanics of our musculoskeletal system such as muscle flexibility and joint mobility.

Increasing muscle flexibility and joint mobility is a key factor to reduce the chances of muscle injury as they can support better any type of mechanical stress and forces acting on them.

How often should I get a Deep Tissue Massage for muscle injury prevention?

The average to get a deep tissue massage depends on the amount of work out and the lifestyle/job of the people: the frequency can be from once a week for professional and semi-professional athletes until 4-6 weeks for nonprofessional athletes and sedentary people.

    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.
