What is Deep Tissue Massage?

Deep Tissue Massage, as the name suggests, is massage of the deeper soft tissues. Deep Tissue Massage largely employs hands-free techniques, using the forearms and elbows, powered by body weight, to achieve a deeper pressure. The soft muscles of the forearms are used to apply long, slow strokes, while the bony areas of the forearm and elbow are skilfully used to manipulate and release specific areas of tension in the muscles and fascia.

Using Deep Tissue Massage, much depth and precision can be achieved with minimal discomfort, compared with methods that extensively employ the fingers and thumbs. It can be performed as a stand-alone treatment, or integrated with holistic therapeutic massagesports and remedial massage and aromatherapy in a made-to-measure massage treatment. Deep Tissue Massage may be performed either with or without oil and can be adapted to work with clients fully clothed.

Testimonials on the benefits of Deep Tissue Massage:

Chris, surviver of three strokes – high green: “I benefit from the leg massage because it loosens tight and tired muscles. I find that my legs have changed since I’ve been having massages with Sarah because I can walk more comfortably and for a bit longer. It also helps that I don’t always have to use pain medication to ease my calves and legs to work better.”
