Shoulder massage focuses on the muscles located around the shoulder region. The shoulder muscles consist of the rotator cuff, upper trapezius and rhomboids. There are many techniques commonly used during a shoulder massage including STR, MET, kneading, effleurage and skin rolling. A shoulder massage effectively reduces pain, stress, tension and tightness in the shoulder muscles. A shoulder massage increases the temperature of muscles to improve blood circulation. Our sports massage therapist at Lucas Massage Therapy uses shoulder massage to help reduce pain, tension and tightness of the muscles and shoulder pain relief.

The early stages of treatment will involve manual therapy, including sports massage to reduce pain and release tight muscles as well as mobilisation techniques to restore normal shoulder range of movement. Our sports massage therapist at Lucas Massage Therapy will give you stretching and strengthening exercises for your shoulder.

The exercise programme has specific exercises to strengthen shoulder muscles, upper back and scapula. The exercises will improve your rotator cuff strength, as well as stretch shoulder girdle control and mobilise tight structures. To achieve proper rehabilitation of your injury it is important to ensure the exercises are performed with the right technique.

How will a shoulder massage help you with muscle tightness?


A shoulder massage will help decrease muscle tightness that causes pain. The main reasons for tight muscles include injury and poor posture. Tightness of the muscles in the shoulders can lead to acute or chronic pain and discomfort that affects your everyday life. A shoulder massage increases blood circulation to improve flexibility and tissue elasticity. When tissue elasticity improves it reduces muscle tightness.
