DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE
Deep Tissue Massage works deeper into the muscles to release the tension and knots that may have been built up.
The pressure applied is far greater than a normal massage but will provide greater relief to the body. However, you may find yourself being a bit more uncomfortable than you would during a holistic body massage and you are likely to be a bit sore around the area of the body that has been worked on for a day or two after the treatment.
Drinking a lot of water may help alleviate some of the pain as it is helping to flush out the lactic acid from the tissues in the body.
Deep Tissue Massage is greatly beneficial for those who suffer from stiff necks, tension in the shoulders, lower back tightness or general tension all over the back. Those suffering from the problems below may also benefit from having a deep tissue massage too:
- Chronic pain
- Limited mobility
- Recovery from injuries (e.g. whiplash, falls, sports injury)
- Repetitive strain injury, such as carpal tunnel syndrome
- Postural problems
- Osteoarthritis pain
- Muscle tension or spasm
