Deep Tissue Massage

Over 600 muscles drape the human skeleton and give the body its characteristic form. They enable us to walk down the street, throw a ball and stand up straight.

The great majority of muscle disorders are caused by unaccustomed exertion or strain. While exercisers frequently experience muscle problems, these disorders are by no means restricted to those who work out. A pedestrian forced into a sprint to avoid traffic may suffer the same muscle strain as an experienced runner.

Deep Tissue Massage is a massage technique that focuses on the deeper layers of muscle tissue. The purpose is to 'unstick' the fibres of a muscle while releasing deeply held patterns of tension through slow strokes and deep finger pressure on the contracted areas. It is both corrective and therapeutic.
