Deep Tissue Massage

Do you suffer with any of the following:

  • Built up tension in your muscles?
  • Flexibility issues?
  • Chronic pain conditions?
  • Migraines or headaches?
  • General aches and pains from surgery or injury?

Then deep tissue massage could be the ideal treatment to help control pain conditions, ease tension and improve your mobility and sporting performance.

What Is A Deep Tissue Massage?

Deep Tissue Massage is a particularly good massage for people who work out a lot, have a particularly physical job or feel you need a deeper massage than a standard Swedish massage. Some people can find Deep Tissue Massage uncomfortable as the pressure is fairly intense and the therapist concentrates on really getting deep and breaking down any knots or adhesions on the muscles.

This style of massage uses not only the hands but elbows and forearms to allow the therapist to give you that deeper relief from aches and pains. The purpose is to “unstick” the fibres of a muscle while releasing tension and removing toxins, while relaxing and soothing the muscle. It is both corrective and therapeutic.

What Are The Benefits Of Deep Tissue Massage?

  • Can improve chronic pain conditions
  • Can help maintain a healthy blood pressure
  • Can help rehabilitate injured muscles
  • Reduce stress
  • Restore pain free movement

How Often Should I Have A Deep Tissue Massage?

It’s different for every client, to get the full benefits one massage every 1-2 weeks is ideal. However it depends on each individual, physically you may find that one massage every 3-4 weeks is enough to keep any issues at bay.  The choice is yours.

What Should I Expect When I Have A Deep Tissue Massage?

You will initially have a consultation to discuss your health and lifestyle to establish what you can hope to achieve from the massage. Your therapist will then leave the room to allow you to get undressed for your massage. If you are having shoulder, neck and back massage you will be required to remove everything down to the waist, for a full body you leave on your underpants and remove everything else. There will be two towels on the massage couch for you to arrange over you to ensure your privacy and that you are kept warm.

My priority is how at ease and relaxed you feel so you in turn can get the best possible outcome from your session.

  • Do not drink alcohol for 24 hours after your treatment
