Deep Tissue Massage
We recommend this treatment for athletes or those involved in heavy physical activity or who have sustained a physical injury. Focusing on realigning deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue, this massage relieves severe tension and pain.
It is especially helpful for chronically tense and contracted areas such as stiff necks, upper and lower back tightness, and sore shoulders. Chronic muscle tension is released using deep tissue massage through slower strokes and more direct deep pressure or friction.
Deep tissue massage helps to restore mobility, increases blood circulation in the muscles and therefore the oxygen flow around the body. It also helps to break up or eliminate scar tissue after an injury and "knots" deep in the muscles.
Important Information and After Care
We have a duty of care to all clients and a consultation is always carried out at the beginning of the first appointment to establish the client’s medical history and lifestyle. The therapist discusses client’s diet, posture, exercise, allergies, work patterns and stress indicators. This helps the therapist to determine the most appropriate course of treatment.
It is important to let your massage therapist know if you have any medical problems such as skin allergies or conditions, problems with joints, a history of heart problems, or if you are / may be pregnant or have recently had surgery.
After the massage treatment, we recommend you do the following:
- Drink plenty of water
- Eat only a light meal
- Avoid alcohol
- Keep warm
