Deep Tissue Swedish Massage Therapy

Deep Tissue Swedish Massage is defined as the systematic manipulation of the soft tissues, especially skeletal muscles of the body for a curative effect.

Soft tissues are made more pliable through massage, and it promotes local blood circulation and lymphatic flow.

Brings about healing effects, both physical and psychological and helps to lessen pain and mental and emotional stress.

Most clients do not realise how much mental and emotional stress they carry in the neck, shoulder and back muscles. A deep tissue massage will help to release this tightness.

Most people are not aware how closely their body is affected negatively by the thoughts that circle round their mind day in and day out. Talking about what is worrying them and connecting it to the pain they are experiencing in their bodies, often has a healing effect.

The system of massage treatment involves the therapist using their hands to apply pressure on the muscles and joints of your body.

I use various techniques to work on the body: stroking and gliding (effleurage), kneading the soft tissues (petrissage), or what is termed ‘percussion’ or tapotement, which is fast, firm movements on the stronger muscles of the body to lessen tightness and cramping.

Deep Tissue Massage is also referred to as Swedish Massage in many countries.

The Benefits Of Massage


Deep Tissue Massage therapy is extremely beneficial to people leading busy lifestyles suffering from what is now commonly encountered work related stress. Deep Tissue Massage will not only aid with mental relaxation but will work on physical symptoms of back and neck pain that comes from sitting for an extended period of time at a desk or from physical labour.

Many people wait until they are already in pain before turning to massage, but why let it get that bad? It is a good idea to have a regular massage as a preventative measure so that such discomfort and pain do not occur.

Regular massage maintenance will increase your overall sense of wellbeing for optimum physical and mental health, and to keep your skeletal muscle and joints as relaxed as possible.

Deep Tissue Massage is used to treat a wide range of disorders, such as:


  • Insomnia
  • Work related stress
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Short temper
  • Tension


  • Painful Muscles
  • Headaches and migraines

Your body stance and gait will also be examined as this maybe part of what is causing you discomfort and pain. A session lasts an hour and costs £45.
