Sports massage is a vigorous and stimulating massage which addresses trigger points and works on the muscles' deeper layers.
Techniques include stretches and joint mobilizations, dynamic techniques and increased applied pressure.
Sports massage shortens recovery time by increasing blood flow and lymph fluid, both important in the body´s healing process and waste removal. Before sports a sports massage can increase performance and vitality.
Relaxational massage is characterized by long, slow and light(er) strokes invoking a deep sense of relaxation and well being.
Optimal if you feel you need to unwind and rest.
We often forget (how) to relax. Through the body´s experience of gentle touch, our mind follows and we become one with the rythm of our breath, our heart beat, with the slow pace of the moment. Also read about Indian head massage, to relax head, face, neck and shoulders, here.

Clinical massage will focus on a specific problem, such as pain or decreased mobility. This massage addresses only the areas of the body involved.
Lymphatic drainage may be applied if you are experiencing an accumulation of lymph fluid, i.e. due to lymph nodes that have been impaired.

About Indahs massages
During a full body massage, I usually incorporate techniques from classical, sports & therapeutical massage that I have learned during my years of practice. I use fluid and rythmic circling motion of hands and arms on the body, mobilizing and shaking techniques and a good amount of (deep) pressure, adding passive stretches.
If you like, I may use my feet to aid in applying pressure to the body and levering passive motion.
Every massage is tailored individually. I listen to what you would like and to whether you have any physical complaints. I then adapt the massage to your situation and request and give special attention to the areas where I find tension.
