Deep Tissue Massage

What is a deep tissue massage?

Deep tissue massage is a slow, intense massage that uses techniques to stretch and lengthen the muscles. It is a slower style of massage that targets the deeper tissues and muscles, applying pressure to areas to encourage the release of tension. Contrary to some, there should be no pain involved in this type of massage. If the pressure is too strong, it is counterproductive and the muscles just tense up rather than relaxing and release.

 

Who can benefit from a relaxation massage?

Deep tissue massage can help people living with these conditions:

  • Stress/tension

  • Muscle tension and pain

  • Reduced flexibility and joint stiffness

  • High blood pressure 

 

What happens during a treatment?

Following a consultation, your massage will be performed using a little pure oil such as almond or sesame, directly on your skin. Just the area being worked will be exposed, the rest of your body will be covered by towels.

 

Your muscles will be gently massaged to warm them before using slow, sustained strokes with knuckles, forearms and elbows to achieve deep stretches to release tension and lengthen. Depending on your needs and treatment length, it can cover areas such as - back, shoulders, legs, arms, feet and neck.
