Deep Tissue Massage

Deep tissue massageMany postural problems occur from regular day to day activities – sitting at a desk, long drives, gardening. Most of these can be successfully treated through massage treatments.

Deep tissue massage focuses on realigning the deeper layers of muscles & connective tissue, helpful for chronically tense areas such as stiff necks, low back tightness and sore shoulders.

The movement is slow and the pressure deep, concentrating on areas of tension and pain, which helps loosen muscle tissues, releases toxins and gets blood and oxygen circulating properly again.

Treatments such as ‘Trigger Point Therapy’ break down severe muscular tension and knots which often result from stress, poor posture or excessive exercise.
