Deep Tissue is one of my most popular treatments!
A Deep Tissue Massage is a style of massage that targets musculoskeletal issues such as aches, strains and pains. It’s a firm style of massage which reaches deep layers of tissue and works to soften muscles and connective tissue. It’s beneficial for a range of issues from sports injuries, to overuse, to general tension.
How it works
The techniques used in this massage promote recovery by kick starting the healing process. When muscles are tight and sore, this massage helps to break down any scar tissue and muscle adhesions and also flushes fresh oxygenated blood into the area – in other words it gives the muscles an aided opportunity to heal. Muscle knots and tightness can restrict blood flow, cause pain and result in inflammation. All not very fun things to have when you’re in such a fun mountain playground as Morzine!
Deep Tissue starts off with gentle techniques warming up the tissue. I’ll let you in on a secret, it’s at this part of the massage that I’m really feeling what’s going on, where most tension is lying and where there are differences between the two sides of your body. With firm deep pressure and a mixture of friction, myofascial release and trigger point release I can work on the problem areas; moving, lengthening and softening the connective tissues.
Benefits of Deep Tissue Massage are both mental and physical. Although it can be painful in parts, it can also be extremely relaxing. As your muscles and soft tissue release, the body’s response is relaxation. Furthermore, this is your massage and therefore I always work at a pressure that is comfortable for you. This massage reduces pain throughout the body and can be used to treat a range of different conditions. It also promotes better sleep and helps relieve stress. When your body feels good your mind will too.
