MASSAGE

Massage can either stimulate or relax depending on the type of massage and the techniques used. A vigorous, stimulating massage can revitalise and boost energy levels whereas a lighter, relaxing massage soothes and calms. 

Sports massage is more suited to active sports people as well as those who prefer a deeper massage. Sports massage is usually specific to a certain problem area and of a shorter duration than a relaxing massage.
