Frequently asked questions about massage

  • How does massage work?

    Massage is the manual working of the soft tissue of the body. Massage improves metabolism and blood flow, relaxes muscles, eases muscle-related tension and helps get rid of toxins in the body. Massage also helps to prevent sprains and strains.

  • Why am I sore after massage?

    Massage puts a strain on the muscles which can show up as muscle soreness. With some clients it can be a case of the body being so used to muscle tension that it stops reacting to pain stimulus. The phenomenon is called numbing. When the nerves start to react to stimulus again the body can feel sore. The symptoms give important information for the choice of future treatment.

  • What’s the difference between regular massage and sports massage?

    The biggest difference between classic massage and sports massage is the end goal because the means are still the same. In sports massage you must take into account competition- and training season for the treatment to fit the occasion. Classic massage is meant for fixing muscle tension and improving joint mobility and sports massage is meant for, on top of those things, getting rid of lactic acid and aiding recovery.
