Deep Tissue Massage
Deep Tissue Massage is a type of massage therapy which uses firm pressure and slow strokes to reach the deeper layers of muscle and fascia, this is the connective membrane surrounding muscles.
I incorporate Myofascial Release techniques to enable the muscle to move more freely during the massage and thereby promoting longer lasting results.
Deep Tissue Massage is beneficial for anyone with chronic aches and pains and , tight areas of muscle.
I will use deeper pressure to release knots and adhesions in the muscles, this will separate scar tissue and release rigid tissue that can disrupt circulation and cause pain, restrict range of motion, and cause inflammation.
Is it painful?
I am skilled at releasing the muscle fibres without pain or bruising to the tissue. It is possible that you may feel slight discomfort as any adhesions are released in certain muscles so I may encourage you to exhale at this point to assist the release.
You are likely to feel a huge difference to your body by the end of the session although for any chronic issues it may be an idea to book for a subsequent session to support your long term benefit.
I will tailor the massage to support your individual needs and the session will begin with a consultation for me to ascertain what is happening with your body.
It is advisable for you to drink reasonable amounts of water subsequent to the session to support the detoxification of your body as it passes the metabolic waste from your system.
I may suggest simple stretching techniques or exercises for you to use following the session to support your body to stay loose.
