Deep Tissue Massage Targets Areas of Muscle to Relieve Pain, Reduce Tension and Restore Normal Function
Deep tissue massage is a treatment used to help realign the deep layer of muscles and connective tissue that can cause aches, pain and tension in many different areas of the body.
Using the latest technology to deliver a slow motion massage that goes deeper into the muscles and fibres than a traditional massage, deep tissue massage can be used to target precise areas with concentrated affects.
Deep Tissue Massage Sessions – What’s Involved?
At the start of any deep massage treatment you have with us, we’ll spend time asking your questions about your current health issue and specifically the area or areas that are the problem.
Based on what we learn, will then what approach we need to take with the massage and how we need to apply the technology we use to get the best results out the session.
Then once you’re happy with everything, we’ll get you settled on one of our treatment tables and start the deep tissue massage.
After your session there will be more time for you ask questions, to discuss how the session has made you feel and to arrange your next visit if required.

Why Deep Tissue Massage Works
If you’ve lived with a muscular problem caused by a specific condition or an old injury for a number of years, the body adapts and compensates as best it can.
However, this can restrict blood flow and reduce the oxygen levels to those affected areas.
The result is that muscles, tendons and ligaments can get knotted together into bands of tissue (adhesions) causing pain, tension, tightness and limited movement.
Deep tissue massage works because it can be used to target the affected areas helping to break down the adhesions, which in turn helps relieve the associated pain, relax the muscles, and help restore normal function.
Does it Hurt?
In the main, deep tissue massage is virtually painless but dependent on how tight your muscles are, the level of discomfort you feel will vary.
The whole idea of the massage is to relax your muscles to help relieve the symptoms you are experiencing, but in doing so some people have reported aches and pains throughout the process.
The important thing is to talk to us as the treatment progresses and let us know what you are feeling. That way we can ensure you can get the most from your treatment with the least discomfort possible.
After your session it’s normal to experience some aches and pains as your body adjusts but this fade within a day or so.
