Deep Tissue Massage

Deep tissue massage involves applying sustained pressure using slow, deep strokes to target the inner layers of your muscles and connective tissues. This can help reduce tension in muscle and tissue and is also effective in breaking up scar tissue after an injury and helps to improve healing times through increased blood flow to the affected area.

Deep tissue massage is used to treat pain and relieve stiffness. It is not usually used to promote relaxation, although it can help relieve stress.

Deep tissue massage is effective for:

  • sports injuries
  • fibromyalgia
  • plantar fasciitis
  • high blood pressure
  • sciatica
  • tennis elbow

It is fairly common to have some soreness after a deep tissue massage. This usually clears up within a couple of days and is part of the healing process.
