Deep Tissue Massage
What can Deep Tissue Massage help with?
Deep tissue massage can be incredibly beneficial for anyone who experiences chronic pain, tension, or stiffness in their muscles and soft tissues.
Unlike traditional relaxation massage, which focuses on surface-level tension and promotes relaxation, deep tissue massage works by targeting the deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue.
This type of massage uses slow, deep strokes and pressure to release tightness and tension in the muscles, helping to alleviate pain and promote healing. It can also help to improve range of motion and flexibility, making it an effective treatment for a variety of conditions, including chronic back pain, neck pain, and headaches.
Additionally, deep tissue massage can help to reduce stress and promote relaxation, making it a great choice for anyone who wants to improve their overall health and well-being.
If you’re looking for a massage that is both therapeutic and relaxing, this massage is definitely worth considering.
- Pain relief
- Improved flexibility
- Reduced stress and anxiety
- Improved Circulation
Deep tissue treatment
Deep tissue massage offers both physical and psychological benefits. It can relieve muscle pain and stiffness caused by day-to-day life and provide stress-relieving relaxation for the body and mind.
This is a massage technique that’s mainly used to treat musculoskeletal issues and posture imbalances causing aches and pains such as headaches or lower back pain as well as strains and some sports injuries. It involves applying sustained pressure using slow, deep strokes to target the inner layers of your muscles and connective tissues. This helps to break up scar tissue that forms following an injury and reduces tension in muscle and tissue.
It may also promote faster healing by increasing blood flow and reducing inflammation.
Your treatment with us will include but not be limited to a detailed case history. Assessment of the presenting condition including, where required, a postural assessment. We will also use a variety of standard and advanced massage techniques throughout your treatment including;
- STR’s Soft Tissue Release methods
- MET’s Muscle Energy Techniques
- Trigger point therapy
- Myofascial release techniques
- Rehabilitation exercises
Of course, you may not have a specific issue needing attention. Deep tissue massage is a great choice for relaxation and stress relief, and we have you covered for that as well!
The results of deep tissue massage can vary based on the individual’s condition, the intensity of the massage, and the goals of the massage. Some people may experience immediate relief from pain and tension, while others may require multiple sessions to see significant improvements. It is common to experience some soreness or discomfort after a deep tissue massage, but this should subside within a day or two.
If you are uncertain if deep tissue massage is the right path for you, please contact us and speak with a qualified therapist to discuss your specific needs and goals.
