Which massage is best for sore muscles?
5th July 2018
Deep tissue massage, trigger point, sports massage, and Swedish massage are often best for sore muscles.
- Deep tissue massage involves the application of pressure on specific trouble points. The troubled muscles are pushed into, often far down to the bone. It is often preferred by athletes who undergo strenuous muscle workouts.
- Trigger point massage: focuses on specific areas to relieve pain instead of working entire muscle groups. It loosens tight areas and relieves muscle pain and injuries.
- Sports massage: the entire body is rubbed and the muscles are kneaded. It improves circulation and promote muscle repair after intense workout.
- Swedish massage: Swedish massage uses circular motions and gentle strokes to help relaxation and relieve sore muscles.
