What is Deep Tissue Massage

Deep tissue massage is a massage technique that focuses on the deeper layers of muscle tissue. It aims to release tension in the body through slow strokes and deep finger pressure on the contracted areas.

Benefits of Deep Tissue Massage

Who Can Enjoy a Deep Tissue Massage

Deep tissue massage can be enjoyed by anyone wishing to loosen tight muscle tissues, improve posture and increase energy levels.

A full consultation will be carried out prior to your first treatment to ensure that deep tissue massage is right for you and to devise an individual treatment plan to meet your specific needs.

What Happens During a Deep Tissue Massage Treatment

You will be asked to remove appropriate clothing in private and make yourself comfortable on the massage couch, with large towels to cover you.

During the massage, only the part of your body being massaged will be exposed in order to protect your modesty. Massage lotion will be applied to the skin to allow free movement of the massage techniques and to nourish the skin.

Due to the depth I work and the pressure applied, deep tissue massage may cause some soreness during or after the massage. However, you should feel the benefits within a day or two.

After-Care Advice

Deep tissue massage has a detoxifying effect on the body and you can encourage this by drinking plenty of water and avoiding caffeine, nicotine and alcohol for the next 24 hours. Also try to avoid any strenuous exercise for 24 hours following treatment and try to rest and allow your body to heal from within.
