A powerful and effective healing tool to relieve tense, strained muscles and to bring the body back to homeostasis.
This treatment has excellent healing results. It is a technique that uses really slow movements with firm pressure.
What is causing the tightness?
Tight and tense muscles are the result of over use or too much time in the same position putting your body under strain and weakening other muscles. This creates blockages in the body, where there are blockages tension builds and problems are created.
How it works?
Muscles respond best when they are being eased out of tension. The firm pressure restricts blood flow momentarily and then encourages new blood to flow into the area and helps to decrease the blockage and ease tension. If muscles are worked too hard and too fast they tighten up as the body tenses to protect itself this, in turn, can create tension in other areas.
Who it's for?
Deep tissue massage is an ideal treatment for people who are training and trying to speed up recovery. As well as for anyone who is dealing with tension that has been building up over time for example in the shoulder area from working at a desk for long hours.
It really is important to have regular treatment and to address problem areas before they begin affecting other parts of the body and other parts of your life.
