About Deep Tissue Massage
Deep Tissue Massage focuses on the deeper layers of muscle tissue. It is used to release chronic muscle tension through both slower strokes and direct deep pressure or friction, working along or across the fibres of the muscle, tendons and fascia.
Deep tissue massage alters muscle restrictions, alleviates pain and brings about better posture.
When your muscles are stressed, they block oxygen and nutrients. This can lead to inflammation and a build up of toxins which leaves you feeling tired and achy.
Benefits of Deep Tissue Massage
A deep tissue massage helps to release these toxins, thereby encouraging the circulation of fresh blood and oxygen and easing muscle tension. This is a full body massage carried out on a table and is especially effective for releasing tension in specific muscles; for example in the lower back which can result in better mobility and posture.
It can also be combined with elements of Shiatsu, Pelvic Alignment and Indian Head Massage to provide a powerful and revitalising whole-body experience.
Even if you don’t have any specific areas or ailments that need attention, a deep tissue massage can be a very relaxing treatment and help you unwind from the strains and stresses of the day.
