Deep Tissue Massage is a massage technique that focuses on the deeper layers of muscle tissue. It aims to release the chronic patterns of tension increasing the blood flow and therefore increasing oxygen flow to your body. This gets rid of toxins in the muscles, which helps them to strengthen and recover. It increases blood circulation in muscles that are underused, relieves chronic muscle tension throughout the body, and can also break down “knots” deep in the muscles.
Some of the many benefits of deep tissue massage:
- Improves circulation
- Relaxes and releases tense muscles
- Eliminates toxins and waste
- Encourages deeper and more relaxed breathing
- Improves digestion
- Aids relaxation
- Reduces stress, tension and anxiety levels
- Improves quality of sleep
It is an excellent massage to help get rid of deep rooted knots especially in the neck and shoulders. You may notice some soreness during or right after the massage, however, you should feel better than ever after a day or two. However this is not the case for everyone. You will be encouraged to say if you feel uncomfortable, as the aim is to reduce any tension or scar tissue while you feel comfortable.
Deep tissue massage helps to loosen tight muscles, improve circulation of blood and oxygen, and as it releases toxins from the muscles you will need to increase the amount of water that you drink, encouraging the release of these toxins from your system.
Various techniques will be used to massage you, including Swedish massage, positional release, deep tissue, trigger points and acupressure. All of these techniques are used to release tension, relax your muscles, de-stress and re-energise you.
Your first treatment will include an initial consultation to take your medical history, look at your diet and lifestyle, all of these will enable a treatment which will best suit you.
