Muscle tension and tightness can build up in our bodies caused by injury or by repetitive daily living activities - ways we repeatedly use our bodies throughout the day; for instance computer work, manual work, driving, feeling stressed and ‘holding stress’ in neck or shoulders etc. This all effects how our muscles and soft tissues work together.
Where a person feels areas of muscle ‘tightness’ or ‘tension’, sometimes accompanied by pain, Deep Tissue Massage is useful in working through the layers of muscle and soft tissueS, gradually softening the muscles and tissue, releasing adhering muscles and adhesions - ‘knots’.
The aim of Deep Tissue Massage is to support improving a person’s
muscle function. Enabling targeted muscles, to move more freely and
easily, feel less restricted and tender. This in term supports pain
relief, flexibility and mobility.
What to expect
As with all massage treatments, Deep Tissue Massage takes place in a dedicated treatment room at the Centre. Together with the Massage Therapist, there will be an Initial Consultation. This is an informal discussion about your well being, all information given is treated in strictest confidence. The aim is to provide a treatment plan that will best address your needs. Treatment sessions take from 30 minutes to one hour. Treatment rooms are warm, and during your massage you will be covered at all times, apart from the area the therapist is working with.
