Due to the intensity of the treatment, it is advisable that you book no longer than 30 minutes for Sports Massage.
Deep Tissue Massage
Deep tissue massage is a type of massage therapy that focuses on realigning deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue.
A Deep Tissue Massage is particularly helpful areas such as stiff necks, low back tightness, and sore shoulders, all areas prone to chronic tension and contracted muscles. The treatment focuses on reaching into and realigning your deeper layers of muscle and connective tissues, using a deeper pressure concentrated into the areas of pain, spasm or tension.
As muscles, tendons and ligaments get tighter, usually from tension or injury, it is common for them to develop ‘adhesions’. These are bands of sore and sometimes rigid tissues which can block circulation, restrict movement and cause pain.
Our Deep Tissue Massage treatment will work into breaking down these adhesions to release the muscles and help to increase freedom of movement.
