Deep Tissue Massage

Deep Tissue Massage is a technique that focuses on the deeper layers of muscle tissue. It aims to release the chronic patterns of tension in the body through slow strokes and deep finger pressure on the contracted areas, either following or going across the fibre’s of the muscles, tendons and fascia. Also helps to break up and eliminate scar tissue.

We work on the muscles that have become tightened, shortened and congested as a result of postural issues, sporting activities, repetitive actions. As well as releasing restrictions within the tissue this particular massage can oxygenate area’s of the body. This will help allow the body to relax into a more correct structural alignment, and can even help to free trapped nerves.
