Deep Tissue Massage
Deep tissue massage works on the various layers of muscles and tendons around the body. Painful and stiff areas are worked on using specific stokes and pressure.
Does it hurt?
Deep tissue massage can be uncomfortable at times but many say it’s more relieving than painful. Communication is the key to avoid any unnecessary discomfort, so if anything becomes too uncomfortable a different approach or technique can be applied.
What causes tightness and pain in a muscle?
As well as injury, repetitive overuse, acute or chronic overload, there is also other contributing factors to muscular knots and stiffness such as stress, anxiety, dehydration and unhealthy eating habits.
What are muscle knots/trigger points?
Myofascial trigger points are often known as muscle knots and are generally created when muscle fibres contract involuntary causing pain and dysfunction.
Tiny tears occur when the muscular fibers, tendons, ligaments and fascia become weakened, overstretched or inflamed.
What do knots/trigger points feel like?
Reduced flexibility with some or complete weakness within the muscle with discomfort can vary from a dull ache to a deep pressing pain, numbness, tingling or a burning sensation.
How I work
During all my treatments comfort is my priority as this enables relaxation, which in turn creates better results.
To begin with I start relaxing and warming the complete area to be focused on with a general massage. This can be the whole back including the neck and shoulders or the whole leg for example. During this time I assess and formulate a treatment plan which is adaptable according to the reaction of the muscles and any other tight or painful areas I might find. The degree of pressure and strokes used depends on the client feedback on what they are feeling. This allows my client to stay relaxed and for me to achieve better results.
