Deep Tissue:

This is an oil base, deep and powerful treatment that can help reduce chronic muscular tension. This massage will refresh and relax muscles whilst easing pain by breaking down fibrous adhesion (knots) and scar tissue that can be the result from muscle injury, poor posture, athletic pursuits, repetitive strain or sustained pressure, such as sitting for prolonged periods.

Fibrous adhesion (knots) and scar tissue is when tough tissue builds up, shortening and weakening muscles. This can then lead to tension in tendons causing tendinosis, trap nerves reducing range of motion, strength and causing pain.

Treatments can be full body or concentrate on problematic areas. Neuromuscular technique can be used to relieve trigger points and strokes are similar to Holistic Swedish Massage, but much slower, and generally applied with more pressure. This helps improve circulation to the muscle, taking away toxins and bringing nutrients such as Oxygen that help aid in the repair of the muscle. Gentle stretching is included that also help improve joint mobility and muscle flexibility.

Deep tissue treatment includes an initial full consultation and assessment. A phone consolation can be done before meeting as well to tailor make the treatment.
