Deep tissue massage therapy is not just a firm massage, it is a specific type of massage therapy that concentrates on the deep layers of the muscles and fascia in the body. It is combined with different types of massage therapy techniques such as myofascial  release, trigger points or neuromuscular therapy that helps to reduce pain, inflammation and chronic muscle tension, removes waste products, increases oxygen and blood flow into your muscles. This helps your body remove toxins and metabolic wastes from sore and overworked muscles and allows them to recover more quickly by circulating oxygen rich blood into the working muscles.

Deep tissue massage is often used to treat people who are recovering from injuries as it increases blood circulation in muscles that are underused. It also relieves chronic muscle tension throughout the body, and can also break down scar tissue and ‘knots or trigger points’ deep in the muscle belly.

During your initial consultation we will discuss how your injury developed and identify an individual treatment plan, after-care advice and a holistic, whole-body approach to how small lifestyle and nutritional changes can help you recover more quickly.
