This massage is ideal for relieving tension and chronic, painful knots in the deeper muscles of the body, below the superficial muscles.
Muscle knots and stress can block the flow of nutrients and oxygen from getting to where they need to go, inhibiting the body’s own natural healing ability. This can cause inflammation and allow toxins to build up in the muscle tissue. These toxins contribute to pain and stress.
Deep tissue massage will break up these knots, release the blockages and the build up of toxins, allowing blood and oxygen to circulate.
The massage can be uncomfortable, and even slightly painful. The pressure is much firmer than that used in Swedish massage, movements are slower and more concentrated, and as such this treatment is a much more intense massage.
It is not unusual to feel sore for a day or two after the treatment. However, after 24 - 48 hours at the most, you should feel really good.
It is essential to drink plenty of water both before and after your treatment. This will help to flush out the toxins released by the massage, oxygenate the muscles and ease discomfort
