Deep Tissue Massage
Deep tissue massage uses similar techniques to that of Swedish Massage, however I will apply deeper pressure to help release chronic muscle tension. The focus is on the deepest layers of muscle tissue and I will work more on the tendons and fascia (the protective layer surrounding muscles, bones and joints). I use trigger point therapy which is applying extended deep pressure to those “knotty” areas and then myofascial release to stretch and smooth the connective tissue around the muscles.
Many people seek deep tissue massage to focus on a specific problem areas such as chronic muscle pain and/or injury rehabilitation, however deep tissue massage can also help with any of the following conditions:
- Low back pain
- Limited mobility
- Recovery from injuries (e.g. whiplash, falls)
- Repetitive strain injury
- Postural problems
- Muscle tension in the hamstrings, glutes, IT band, legs, quadriceps, rhomboids, upper back
- Sports concerns (runners, athletes)
- Piriformis syndrome
- Tennis elbow
- Upper back or neck pain
I have worked as a massage therapist for over 10 years. During this time I have trained in advanced massage techniques, sports massage, myofascial release and pregnancy massage. This extensive study has provided me the skills required to build a therapeutic and individualized massage treatment depending on your physical and psychological needs. If you require a massage to de-stress then I will use light meditative strokes to promote relaxation. If you have an injury or chronic muscle pain and/or stiffness then I can use advanced massage techniques focusing on those areas of discomfort to soothe and reduce tension in the muscles.
