Deep Tissue Massage

Designed to release tight layers of muscle & tissue

Deep Tissue Massage is one of the most effective ways to treat pain and injury. It is designed to release tight layers of muscle and tissue, which usually develop from bad posture, injury or overuse. Restoring movement in the soft tissues alleviates pain, muscle spasm and stress from the problematic area.

It uses a technique where a  firm pressure is applied using thumbs, hands, knuckles, elbows and forearms helping stretch out tense muscle, and break down any adhesions (bands of painful, rigid tissue). Occasionally you may be asked to take a deep breath to help you to relax.

Some of the strokes used are the same as classic Swedish massage therapy, but the movement is slower and more precise. The pressure however is deeper than Swedish massage, and is concentrated on areas of tension and pain.

It is especially helpful for chronically tense and contracted areas such as a stiff neck and shoulders common in office workers, tight legs and glutes or lower back stiffness and pain. It is also highly beneficial in reducing pain and discomfort in conditions such as whiplash, and after a fall or an injury.

Benefits of Deep Tissue Massage

  • Reduce muscular tension, spasm, and chronic pain.deep tissue
  • Break down adhesions within muscles, tendons and ligaments which can improve the flexibility of muscles and joints, and restore pain free movement.
  • Improve postural problems
  • Improve lymph flow and blood circulation.
  • Relieve stress
  • Reduce stiffness and swelling by clearing out waste products and toxins.
  • Assist in recovery from injuries and reduce painful conditions like whiplash, falls, sports injury, and Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

 

This deeper style of massage may sometimes cause some minor soreness during, or in the days following the massage. This is simply due to the muscles releasing stored tension and toxins and will fade within 24-48 hours leaving you feeling more relaxed, with improved posture, improved sleep, and pain-free.
