Treatments

Leigh Sports Massage offers different types of massage treatments including the following:

Sports & Injury

This type of massage is aimed at people who are suffering with specific muscular injury or those suffering with aches and pains.  In our opinion 'Trigger Point Release Massage' is the most effective chronic pain relief treatment out there.

This type of Massage uses 'Myofasical Release' and 'Trigger Point' therapy to relieve muscular pain and dysfunction.  This involves the application of pressure to trigger points as well as thorough stretching.

Trigger points are defined in localized areas in which the muscle and connective tissue are highly sensitive to pain when compressed.  Pressure on these points can send referred pain to other specific parts of the body, resulting in symptoms such as burning muscular pain, headaches and tingling.

A deep tissue massage can relieve these painful symptoms.

Having regular massage treatments can ease minor aches and pains and can help to prevent many common ailments and symptoms of stress such as headaches, insomnia, anxiety, repetitive strain injury and general fatigue.

Deep Tissue

To relieve general tension throughout the body. Deep Tissue massage uses many of the same techniques as Swedish massage, but with a more intense pressure. This type of massage focuses on deeper layers of muscle tissue, using slower strokes and deep finger, hand and forearm pressure to release tension. It is perfect for areas of chronic tension and is useful for breaking up scar tissue.

The skilled application of focused pressure will melt away your tension, restore flexibility, eliminate pain and bring balance to your body.
