Deep Tissue Massage

What is Deep Tissue Massage?

Deep tissue massage is a term used to describe a massage treatment that specifically targets releasing tension in muscles, tendons and ligaments of the body by working deeply into the myofascial tissues.

Deep Tissue Massage is a specific massage, which employs techniques to work below superficial connective tissue with the intent of breaking up old structural patterns and allowing the free flow of nutrients and oxygen to the blood. It also requires the therapist to apply a considerable amount of pressure which in some cases may cause some discomfort.

The Therapist uses movements to release chronic muscle tension through slow and deep strokes, and with more direct pressure of friction applied across the grain of the muscles. The therapist will detect stiff, knotted or painful areas and will slowly work into those deep layers of muscle tissue.

Deep Tissue Massage can also promote an emotional release during a sessions. the body can hold onto emotions in the deeper layers of the body. When accessed, emotions are often released during the session or afterwards.

How may I benefit from Deep Tissue Massage?

Deep tissue massage is aimed at everyone. Most people, at some point in their lives, develop poor postural habits. This is because of repetitive activities or mental and emotional influences on the body.

Many people have occupations that contribute to repetitive postures such as drivers, desk workers, computer operators. The often promotes gradual development of muscular imbalance leading to pain and tension.

In addition those that are involved in leisure activities that require a high level of muscular output often accumulate residues of lactic acid in their muscles, leading to stiffness and pain.

In summary the following are the key benefit:

  • Releases tension (Knots) in muscle tissue/fibre so relaxing tense muscle groups.
  • Improves circulation and blood flow to that muscle group
  • Aids repair of damaged or fatigued muscles.
  • Improves range of movement in area/limbs that have been restricted/tight.

What to expect at your Deep Tissue Massage Appointment

Deep tissue massage is a holistic therapy. At your first appointment we will:

  • discuss your medical and lifestyle details to ensure there are no contra indicators (which would stop you from being able to receive treatment);
  • establish if there are any skin sensitivities or allergies;
  • ensure the treatment is specifically tailored to meet your needs using the most appropriate essential oils.
    assess body posture, spinal alignment and discuss any particular areas of concern.
  • Extra time should be allowed for this initial consultation. At the beginning of each subsequent sessions we will check your current state of health.

You will then be required to remove any jewellery, hair clips or bobbles. You will be left alone in the treatment room so you may remove your clothing except your undergarments. The treatment is performed on a massage bed. Your privacy is of upmost importance and will be preserved at all times. Then it will be time to enjoy the benefits of a wonderful deep tissue massage therapeutic massage.

As with any holistic treatment, their maybe what is called “a healing reaction”, which can manifest itself as a mild headache, feeling emotional, feeling sluggish, increased frequency of urination, post treatment. However, these should be viewed positively as it means the treatment has “got things moving”, for example the release of toxins held in tense/tight muscles, into the lymphatic system, and these are now being eliminated from your body.

Debbie has been treating me for the past 8 years. I started having Reflexology on my feet, which was fantastic as Debbie could identify the areas I was having trouble with. After changing my Job to a driving instructor, I was struggling sitting in the car at a bad angle all day. I asked for a back/shoulder massage. This is amazing!! All the knots in my shoulders and back are worked on, leaving me feeling relaxed with a freedom of movement. Debbie is professional at all times, confident, knowledgeable with a fantastic attitude and personality. I would highly recommend Debbie and wont go to anyone else, in fact I prebook her a year in advance!

I started seeing Debbie as I had a problem with my knees. That was treated successfully, then I started having issues with my back, So I know have a deep tissue back massage as well. I love that Debbie treats me at home and makes me feel very comfortable. Debbie is professional throughout and I would not go to anyone else. I would highly recommend Debbie.
