Deep Tissue Massage
Deep Tissue Massage uses deep pressure applied with the palms, forearms or elbows to affect the inner layers of muscle and connective tissue. The aim is to:
Break up scar tissue following injury
Reduce muscle tension and stiffness
Increase blood flow and reduce inflammation to promote faster healing
Deep tissue is used to to treat conditions such as:
Chronic muscular pain
Specific stretches and exercises may be given to enable the patient to help their recovery at home, as well as general advice about using hot/cold therapy and lifestyle changes that could help recovery time and reoccurrences in the future.
It is not unusual to feel soreness for a few days following your massage, if you have any concerns please get in contact.
