deep tissue / sports massage
A deep tissue / sports massage therapist uses traditional relaxation massage moves as well as many additional and advanced techniques like Soft Tissue Release (STR), Muscle Energy Techniques (MET) and Trigger Point Release (TPR) that allows the therapist to focus more on certain problematic areas in the body i.e. muscle tension and tightens in the shoulders / neck in order to promote healing and to reduce pain in the muscles.
You do not need to be a professional athlete to benefit from this type of massage as many people will develop injuries and pain due to their life style i.e. many people in an office environment suffers from carpal tunnel syndrome, which is a repetitive strain injury (RSI) in the wrist due to working with a mouse on the computer or mums at home develop painful and tight muscles in their shoulder and lower back due to constantly carrying their little ones, they all will benefit from some of those advanced techniques already mentioned.
And of course some really enjoys feeling their muscle beaten into submission, they will also enjoy and benefit from the stronger, deeper pressure that is being used during the session.
These sessions will have longer lasting benefits, however, in case of a chronic problem or injury it is best to have regular treatments preferably in collaboration with other specialist and as part of a rehabilitation program to truly get to the source of the problem and to correct it.
Deep Tissue and Sports Massage is available for private as well as corporate bookings, however, please note that a private room is needed as I will be working with oils directly on the skin.
It is best to keep it 60-90 min / person in an office environment, however, this can be a lot longer for individual bookings especially if it is combined with other therapies too i.e. with Meditation Massage or Reflexology
