Providing Sports Massage Therapy on the Costa del Sol
Elite Performance Therapy offers deep tissue massage techniques that focus on the soft tissues that surround the skeletal structure. Commonly this type of massage focuses on specific pain and injury, however we treat the body as a whole and not the injury in isolation. We believe it is imperative to understand the root cause of the pain in order to rebuild and strengthen any weak muscles.
What is remedial massage?
Remedial massage is the assessment and the treatment of muscles, tendons, ligaments and connective tissues of the body to assist in the rehabilitation when it comes to managing to pain and injury. Remedial massage therapy uses a variety of massage techniques, together with specific deep tissue massage techniques. We work on the body’s soft tissues including the muscles, tendons and fascia. Remedial massage techniques are performed to create favourable conditions for the body to return to normal or optimal health after sustaining an injury. The premise of the treatment can reverse certain physical effects a client may have.
If you have suffered a moderate injury for example, then remedial therapy can help reduce or even eliminate completely the pain associated with the injury and restore particular functions. Remedial massage is specifically designed to help balance muscle or soft tissue, tissue length, tension, and tone, which in turn promotes the return of normal joint, capsular or bone position. Remedial massage also helps increase the flow of blood and lymph in the injured areas, therefore removing any blockages and damaged cells resulting from the injury.
