Deep tissue massage focuses on the deeper layers of muscle and helps to release tension and pain in specific areas. Deeper pressure helps to break up and eliminate scar tissue. When muscles are stressed, they block essential oxygen and nutrients leading to inflammation which builds up toxins, thus the aches and pains.
This massage helps to loosen muscle tissue; get blood and oxygen circulating better and releases toxins thus the advice to drink plenty of water after a treatment to help flush them out! Some people ask for deep tissue as they want a stronger, deeper massage to help release pain, especially from their neck, shoulders and back. For runners they ‘enjoy’ this massage before, during and after a marathon or other long distance run, though sometimes it is a necessary ‘unease’ especially when working on their trigger points and/or legs! Come into the centre to discuss with a free 15 minute consultation or just call and book in asking for deep tissue massage and one of our capable therapists can ensure your aches and pains are seen to with a one off or better still series of treatments to help relieve recurring issues.
