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.
