Service Description

This is a vigorous workout for the body, perfect to alleviate high stress levels and get rid of tension and aches. The pressure is stronger and concentrated on the problematic area which might lead to a little bit of discomfort. It is worth it though as it helps alleviate the pain in the long term! Deep tissue massage works to realign the different layers of tissue, treating the tendons, ligaments and fascia as well as the muscles to release tension and provide pain relief from a stiff neck and upper back, lower back pain, tight legs or sore shoulders. This massage therapy is used to treat chronic tension and injuries from overuse, such as tennis elbow and carpal tunnel syndrome. Whilst some of the strokes are the same as in classic (Swedish) massage, the pace tends to be slower and pressure is applied more strongly, concentrated on problem areas. We may use our forearms, elbows, fingertips and knuckles as well as their hands in order to break-up adhesions. Deep tissue massage usually focuses on a specific problem, such as chronic muscle pain and injury rehabilitation. The therapy can also effectively treat whiplash and repetitive strain, postural problems and sciatica, sports injury and recovery from falls, muscle tension or spasm in the glutes, hamstrings, quads, rhomboids, IT band and upper back. It’s also recommended for fibromyalgia pain with an improvement in the range of motion often noticeable immediately. You can also lower blood pressure, heart rate and stress hormone levels with this massage. You will feel some discomfort as the pressure is deep and direct on painful or injured areas. Scar tissue is being loosed and muscles lengthened, knots are being undone and sub-layers of muscle moved back into the right place. Taking a deep breath when especially tense areas are tackled can be helpful. It’s important to tell us which areas are painful and if the soreness becomes too much. We can easily dial it down a bit or use some more oil to help the muscles relax. There’s benefit in having multiple treatments and giving your body a chance to adjust. You will have some stiffness or tenderness after the massage that goes away after a few days. Stretching can help to reduce this. You can also put ice on any painful areas. Drinking water also helps with muscle rehydration and to flush out the toxins that are released during the massage. It’s sensible to avoid strenuous activity immediately after a massage and to not eat a heavy meal before.
