Soft Tissue Therapy: Sports Massage or Deep Tissue Massage. What's the difference and who is it for?!

Berkhamsted Chiropractic Clinic Rebecca Ash Sports Massage Therapist

The 'Sports Massage Association' defines Soft Tissue Therapy as "the application of soft tissue techniques with the aim of managing, manipulating and rehabilitating muscles, tendons and ligaments” - which means all the soft tissue of the musculoskeletal system.

Sports Massage and Deep Tissue Massage are types of Soft Tissue Therapy.  Sports massage uses deep AND subtle techniques which is why it is also referred to as a Deep Tissue Massage.  A Sports Massage Therapist and a Deep Tissue Therapist are ultimately both Soft Tissue Therapists and will tailor the therapy according to the individual client’s requirements at that specific time.  The variety of techniques used in Soft Tissue Therapy are used to search out restrictions, initiate change, restore function and alleviate pain. 

You do not need to be a sports performer to benefit from Soft Tissue Therapy.

Tips for a Healthy Lifestyle

Berkhamsted Chriropractic Clinic Healthy Lifestyle Tips

Creating a healthy lifestyle doesn’t have to mean drastic changes.  In fact, drastic changes almost always lead to failure.  Making small changes in how you live each day can lead to a healthier lifestyle.

Here are some healthy lifestyle tips you can incorporate into your daily life:

Move Well - Exercise on a daily basis, sit less, move more and gradually build up to at least 30 mins of exercise a day.

Eat Well – Increase your intake of natural foods, like fruits, vegetables and non-processed foods. A good simple rule is, the closer to its natural form - the better the food. A healthy diet can help with weight management and improve health and quality of life.

Sleep Well – Try and sleep 7 to 8 hours per day.  Lack of sleep can make you feel tired and affect your eating habits.

Berkhamsted Chiropractic Clinic Get Britain Standing

Bone Broth! Don't be daunted - try it!

Berkhamsted Chiropractic Clinic Bone Broth

Bone broth (obviously not one for you if you are vegetarian) is really just the homemade stock of yesteryear, but one that has been cooked a little longer - the extra hours are the key to extracting all those deeply nourishing nutrients from the bones. It is delicious, extraordinarily nutritious and beats store-bought stock cubes/broth/bouillon hands down. It is incredibly healthy, inexpensive and if you aren’t already making this stuff by the bucket load, we encourage you to START TODAY!
