Deep Tissue

Deep tissue massage is similar to a Swedish massage, using the same techniques but with more focus on built up tension in your fascia and muscles. Slow, rythmic strokes enable deeper pressure without discomfort, and is often very relaxing as well. A great massage to choose if you are familiar with massage and like a little more pressure.

This targeted treatment can be particularly beneficial if you are sedentary in life or work, you do a lot of repetitive movements, you feel have general aches and pain, or experience tension headaches of migraines. With particular benefit being achieved through regular “maintenance” sessions.

Like all the massages we offer, deep tissue massage is performed using oil so you will be asked to undress to your level of comfort. This is usually down to underwear, but if you are not comfortable to undress fully, adaptations can be made to allow you to keep clothes on. Please discuss this with your therapist on the day, we are always happy to accomadate you. A drape will be used to cover you, so only the part of your body being massage will be exposed at any time.

Unlike popular belief, deep tissue massage does not have to be painful to be effective.The way our therapists work is to target specific areas of tension, and release them to give the body space to heal and recover.

A deep tissue massage will vary greatly from person to person, depending on what it is you have come in for. It can be completely passive so you can find deep relaxation during the massage, talking during this time is usually discouraged as it will inhibit your ability to relax. It can also be an interactive experience where you the therpist ask you to engage in activating parts of your body to enhance the benefit of the treatment. The therapist may also use stretching and pressure point work if they feel necessary.

With all our massages, the therapist will tailor the session to your specific needs. So, if you are still unsure which massage to choose, then do not worry. A discussion will take place between you and your therapist to make sure you get the right treatment on the day. You can always get in touch before hand to speak to someone if you prefer.

Slow, rhythmic stroke to target deeper layers of muscles and fascia. Fascia is a web-like structure made of connective tissue that connects every part of the body with every other part, wrapping around muscles and holding organs in place. Addressing issues in the fascia can reduce pain, increase range of motion, and help nourish muscles and nerves.

Reconnect with your body, feel realigned and ease out tension with a deep tissue massage.

Research has demonstrated that massage therapy is an effective treatment for reducing chronic and acute pain. It can help you recover faster from injuries in the short term and reduce the need for pain medications and surgeries in the long term.
