Deep Tissue Massage

 

What is Deep Tissue/Remedial Massage?

Deep Tissue Massage focuses on realigning deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue. The slow deep pressure is concentrated on areas where there is chronic tension or injury. The techniques and strokes are applied using thumbs, knuckles, forearms and elbows. This type of massage physically breaks down adhesions (rigid tissue) in muscles, tendons, and ligaments. This helps to relieve pain and restore normal movement. Adhesions can block circulation, limit movement and cause inflammation.

Benefits:

Many of my clients experience a variety of benefits that are shared with me during and after the treatment which enables them to have a better level of well-being:

  • Reduced chronic pain.
  • Improved sleep.
  • Reduced stress and anxiety.
  • Improved mobility.
  • Increased range of motion .
  • Restored ease of movement.
  • Reduced muscle tension and spasm. Reduced scar tissue and other adhesions, which can improve both circulatory and nerve function.
  • Promoted circulation (of both blood and lymph).
  • Helped to maintain good health and general well-being. Can help ease postural problems & aid recovery from injuries (e.g. whiplash, falls, sports injury).

What happens in the treatment?

Consultation: Your first treatment includes an initial consultation of 5 minutes to find out basic personal, medical and lifestyle details. A physical examination (if needed) is done through your clothes  to access posture, restricted muscles, level of discomfort and stretches if needed will be suggested. This ensures health and safety during and after your treatment.

During the treatment: Your massage will take place in a comfortable and calming environment; with relaxing music. During the massage your body will be covered at all times with soft towels, with the exception of the area I’m working on. Cushions will help to support you and the heated blanket (If required) will help to keep your body and muscles warm. Products will be selected to create your personalised treatment using Massage oil, essential oils or vitamin-rich base cream which will be smoothed into your skin.

Aftercare advice will be recommended to you to help prolong the positive effects of the treatment and ensure comfort.
