Deep Tissue Massage

Our deep tissue massages help to realign the deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue which is especially useful for chronically tense and contracted areas such as stiff necks, low back tightness, and sore shoulders. This is a similar process to regular massage except the movement is slower and the pressure is deeper and concentrated on areas of tension and pain

Our Deep Tissue Massage services targets chronic muscle tension or injury which is usually caused by adhesions (bands of painful, rigid tissue) in muscles, tendons, and ligaments. The massage works by physically breaking down these adhesions to relieve pain and restore normal movement. This is achieved by use of direct deep pressure or friction applied across the grain of the muscle.

Our service is best received once or twice a week for best effect, either in 5-10 week programs or ongoing until a full recovery is made.

Deep Tissue Massage is ideal for the following conditions:

  • Chronic pain
  • Limited mobility
  • Recovery from injuries (e.g. whiplash, falls, sports injury)
  • Repetitive strain injury, such as carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Postural problems
  • Ostearthritis pain
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Muscle tension or spasm

Your first visit will involve a consultation to determine your problems followed by a treatment and will last 40 minutes in total.
