Deep Tissue Massage focuses on releasing deep restrictions within muscles, fascia, tendons and ligaments. Working below the superficial connective tissue into all layers with slow deep strokes and controlled pressure, chronic muscle tension and scar tissue are released increasing the flow of nutrients throughout the body and allowing the spine and joints to move into correct alignment with increased range of movement.
I Incorporate many specialist techniques into my treatments depending on your needs including Soft tissue release (STR), Trigger point therapy (TrP) and Myofascial release (MFR).
One of my most popular treatments recommended for general aches and pains, effective while very relaxing delivering a deep release which will last.
Trigger Points are groups of muscle cells which become permanently 'switched on', a build up of which disrupts nerve signals and lead to muscles becoming tight, short and dysfunctional. Trigger points cause tenderness at their location and also refer pain to other areas of the body in a distinct pattern.
As a skilled Trigger point therapist I am passionate about locating and treating these points, especially as their referred pain patterns are frequently misdiagnosed as other conditions such as headaches, migraines and sciatica.
Because of the time needed to release, treatments focus on affected areas and include deep tissue and stretching so please note the whole body can not be treated in one session. A very effective treatment.
