Sport massage by Tweed Coast mobile Massage Therapy.  Sports Massage focus on the specific needs  of  athletes , or just about everyone who is involved in sport activities. Kasia Wyrwas has been practicing sport massage for most of her massage cariera. Sport massage incorporates range of different techniques , from deep tissue work, stretching, myofascial release,  trigger points as well as changing body position from back to front and side lying.  Elite athletes are very familiar with sport massage, they often have sessions pre, post or during the game, as well as recovery sessions or simply use it as a maintenance treatment. Saying that sport massage is not reserved for elite athletes only ! It is design for everyone who is physically active either at work (gardeners, trades) or after work participating in sport activities. Sport massage is a tool which will help to prevent you from getting injury and if injury is already there it will help to speed up recovery process, manage pain levels, improve flexibility. Sport massage treatment usually will focus on specific area of the body.

Remedial massage by Tweed Coast mobile Massage therapy.  There is many different descriptions of what Remedial massage is, I'll say what it means to me. Remedial massage is very complex treatment in which many different techniques can be used, that will include trigger point therapy, muscle energy technique (form of stretching), elements of myofascial release, deep tissue techniques, or even soft Swedish massage techniques. Why is remedial massage different to sports massage - because in my opinion remedial massage has more holistic approach to the human body. In sports massage the focus is often on one small area of the body eg a specific muscle or group of muscles. With Remedial massage the practitioner will look a little bit further to see what is effecting the disorder, alignment or pain. Here I have listed a few of many conditions Remedial massage can help with - Back & neck pain, Shoulder and neck tension, Tension headaches and migraines, Sciatica and lower back pain, Carpal tunnel syndrome, RSI (repetitive strain injury) , whiplash and many others.

Myofasial Release by Tweed Coast mobile Massage Therapy.  Fascia is a connective tissue that covers and interpenetrate every muscle and every bone in our body as well as , nerves, arteries,veins, all internal organs, brain, and spinal cord ! It is continue structure running from tip of our toes to very top of our heads! In another word everything in our body is supported by connective tissue.Due to trauma, inflammatory responses, and/or surgical procedures, postural misalignments and, Myofascial restriction can form.The fascia loses its pliability, becomes restricted, and is a source of tension to the rest of the body. Collagen becomes dense and fibrous, and the elastin loses its resiliency. Over time this can lead to poor muscular biomechanics, altered structural alignment, and decreased strength, endurance and motor coordination. Myofascial release is a soft tissue technique that facilitates a stretch into the restricted fascia through applying sustain pressure,after 90-120 seconds the tissue will undergo histological length changes allowing the first release to be felt. The therapist follows the release into a new tissue barrier and holds. After a few releases the tissue will become softer and more pliable. The restoration of length and health to the myofascial tissue will take the pressure off the pain sensitive structures such as nerves and blood vessels, as well as restoring alignment and mobility to the joints. Please note it is not possible to perform full body massage within 1h , in fact even 2h wouldn’t be enough! Its a wonderful treatment with focus on problematic area rather then quick full body massage!
