About the Taster
During this 25-minute massage, Massage Practicioner Niki Owen will help you achieve the ultimate in relaxation through either sports or Swedish massage techniques. You'll specify which you'd prefer upon booking.
During a sports massage, Niki focuses on the muscles relevant to your sport or event. For athletes who train continuously, the goal is to enhance endurance, lessen the chance of injury and shorten the time needed to recover from an event. Sports massage may utilise a variety of techniques such as Swedish massage and trigger point therapy. Prior to an athletic event, sports massage may be used with stretching in order to help athletes to loosen, warm and prepare their muscles so that their performance and endurance might be enhanced. Following an athletic event, sports massage may be used to relieve pain, prevent stiffness, and return the muscles back to their normal state. Sports massage may also be used for injury rehabilitation.
Swedish massage refers to a variety of techniques specifically designed to relax muscles by applying pressure to them against deeper muscles and bones, and massaging in the same direction as the flow of blood returning to the heart. It involves the use of kneading, stroking, friction, tapping, and vibration and may provide relief from stiffness, numbness, pain, constipation, and other health problems. The main purpose of Swedish massage is to increase the oxygen flow in the blood and release toxins from the muscles. Other possible benefits include stimulation of circulation, an increase in muscle tone, and a balance of the musculo-skeletal systems. Swedish massage shortens recovery time from muscular strain by flushing the tissues of lactic acid, uric acid, and other metabolic wastes. It increases circulation without increasing heart load.
