What is Deep Tissue Massage?

Deep Tissue Massage focuses on the deeper layers of muscle tissue. It is used to release chronic muscle tension through both slower strokes and direct deep pressure or friction, working along or across the fibres of the muscle, tendons and fascia.


Deep tissue massage alters muscle restrictions, alleviates pain and brings about better posture. You may feel slight discomfort during or after the massage, but you should feel better than ever within a day or two.

Why have a deep tissue massage?

When your muscles are stressed, they block oxygen and nutrients. This can lead to inflammation and a build up of toxins in your muscle tissue, which can leave you tired and achy. A deep tissue massage helps to ease muscle tissue and release these toxins, encouraging the circulation of fresh blood and oxygen. This type of massage will give you an increased degree of relaxation, and assist your body to recover from any illness and injury. It can promote a feeling of health and wellbeing as it is both corrective and therapeutic. I tailor each treatment to your needs.


For your first treatment with me you will be asked to arrive 10 minutes before your appointment time. This is so that you can complete the client questionnaire, and discuss your treatment requirements. For subsequent sessions please arrive at least five minutes before your appointment so that you get your full treatment time.

 

Hot Stone Massage

What is a Hot Stone Massage?

Hot Stone Massage is a form of therapy that follows the principles of a Swedish Massage, but with the addition of heat. Hot smooth basalt stones are used as a form of thermotherapy and positioned on, or moved across specific areas of the body to allow for greater deep tissue manipulation. Hot stones may be alternated with cold stones to facilitate your treatment.

 

Why have a Hot Stone Massage?

The heat and energy from the hot stones penetrate deep into the muscle tissue to achieve a soothing and therapeutic experience. When used with specific massage techniques, it allows the therapist to relax knotted and tight muscles more efficiently, and with less discomfort to the client.

 

Body Prep & Recovery massage

What is a Body Prep and Recovery Massage?

This treatment uses a combination of deep tissue and acupressure massage techniques, passive and active stretching, and soothing hot stones.


'The manipulation of soft tissue prior to and post exercise promotes physical, physiological, neurological and psychological changes that aid performance and particularly recovery.' (The Complete Guide to Sports Massage, Tom Paine, 2007, A&C Black Publishing).

 

Why have a Body Prep and Recovery Massage?

This is a treatment specifically focused on assisting active people in their sport or exercise programme. Anyone who engages in physical activity for the purpose of sport or fitness – irrespective of age, level of fitness or training – can benefit from this massage. Those following a regular training programme will benefit both from early detection of any problems arising from exercising, and in the prevention of injury by maintaining healthy muscle tissue.

 

Post exercise it can help release muscle tension and pain, reduce discomfort from DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness) and improve posture and flexibility. Those with injuries or problems that are inhibiting performance will find the benefits of this massage encourage the healing process.

What is Seated Acupressure Massage?

This is based on the traditional Japanese acupressure technique called amna. Unlike acupuncture needles are not used in  Seated Acupressure Massage, instead I use my hands to stimulate your energy points. These are found along the meridians or energy lines of your body. I use a specific sequence of movements designed to improve the flow of energy throughout, balancing and strengthening the muscular, circulatory and nervous systems.

 

Why have a Seated Acupressure Massage?

Seated Acupressure Massage relieves stress or tension and encourages knotted, tight muscles to loosen up. It concentrates mainly on the back, neck and shoulders to help relieve any backache, sore shoulders, or tension headaches, and enable you to feel energised and refreshed.

Massage & Cancer Care

A diagnosis of cancer can alienate people from their bodies. People can feel their body has failed them or that they have no control over the disease. Massage has shown itself invaluable in helping people to:

  • Accept their body as it is,
  • Regain confidence in their body,
  • Become aware of their body in a positive way

The benefits include creating a sense of wellbeing, reducing levels of stress, improving self-esteem and soothing and alleviating pain.

The length and cost of these sessions will depend on what you would like. We can talk about which kind of massage therapy is right for you so that I can give you the best possible treatment and care.
