Deep Tissue Massage
Release the tension with our Deep Tissue Massage
Deep tissue massage is a type of massage therapy that focuses on realigning deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue. It is especially helpful for tense and contracted areas such as stiff necks, low back tightness, and sore shoulders.
What are the benefits of a Deep Tissue Massage?
When muscles are stressed, they block oxygen and nutrients, leading to inflammation that builds up toxins in the muscle tissue. A deep-tissue massage helps:
- Loosen muscle tissues
- Release toxins from muscles
- Get blood and oxygen circulating properly
Because many toxins are released, it’s important to drink plenty of water after a deep-tissue session to help eliminate these toxins from the body.
What does a Deep Tissue Massage involve?
The therapist focuses on the deeper layers of muscle tissue aiming to release the chronic patterns of tension in the body through slow strokes and deep finger pressure on the contracted areas, either following or going across the fibers of the muscles, tendons and fascia.
Who is suitable for a Deep Tissue Massage?
Deep tissue massage usually focuses on a specific problem, such as: Chronic pain, limited mobility, recovery from injuries (e.g. whiplash, falls, sports injury), repetitive strain injury, postural problems, arthritis pain and muscle tension.
Pregnancy is a special time in your life, however as your body changes it can bring about aches and pains.
Massage can help relieve pain, discomfort and any muscular tension. Pregnancy massage is a wonderful way to relax and revive the mind and body as well as having some much needed ‘me’ time before baby arrives.
One of the primary goals of the Swedish massage technique is to relax the entire body. This is accomplished by rubbing the muscles with long gliding strokes in the direction of blood returning to the heart. But Swedish massage therapy goes beyond relaxation. Swedish massage is exceptionally beneficial for increasing the level of oxygen in the blood, decreasing muscle toxins, improving circulation and flexibility while easing tension. Before and during your Swedish massage session, communication is encouraged with your professional massage therapist so that your massage is customised to your specific needs.
