Deep Tissue Massage
Massage can be applied to parts of the body or to the whole body to heal injury, relieve psychological stress, manage pain and improve circulation in addition to being used for its physical and psychological benefits. Deep pressures, trigger pointing and stretching techniques are used to focus on specific areas of tension. This will boost circulation in congested areas, break down fibrous knots, promote healing of injuries, reduce pain, and assist in osteopathic care.
Conditions that respond well to this type of massage include: Headaches, Back and neck pain, Sciatica, Sport injuries, Overuse injuries (RSI). This massage is also excellent for releasing general tightness in the neck and shoulders, found commonly in people with stressful jobs. After treatment your neck and shoulders feel lighter and more relaxed.
Massage has many benefits, including:
- Ease muscle tension and reduce stiffness and pain
- Lymph drainage, helping the body to release toxins
- Boosts the immune system
- Increases the flow of blood thereby nourishing the cells
- Aids flexibility
- Reduces stress, promoting a deep sense of well being.
