Deep tissue massage is similar to the classic Swedish massage with a few key differences; mainly the pace of the massage is concentrated on more problematic areas, pressure is applied more strongly and the pace of the massage tends to be much slower.

Because we apply a stronger pressure on the problematic areas, a deep tissue massage can lead to some discomfort, however it does help alleviate pains and aches in the long term.

Our deep tissue massage focuses on a specific problem area, usually related to chronic muscle pain or to help with injury rehabilitation. Deep tissue treatments are a positive alternative to drugs for dealing with osteoarthritis pain, it can also be used to treat an extensive list of ailments, aches and pains, including;

  • whiplash
  • repetitive strains
  • postural problems and sciatica
  • sports injury
  • recovery from falls
  • muscle tension
  • spasm in the glutes
  • and much more….

A deep tissue massage targetrs problematic areas and can lead to some mild discomfort. If you experience any discomfort you should communicate this with the masseuse. This will give the masseuse the opportunity to tome it down, use more oils, and ease your discomfort.

To successfully treat problematic pains, it is often recommended that a person should book multiple sessions.

You may experience stiffness and tired muscles after a session but this is normal and usually eases after a day or two. Between each deep tissue massage it is important that yu drink plenty of water. The water will help with muscle rehydration and helps flush out toxins that were released during teh massage. It is also important to avoid any strenuous activity immediately after a massage.
