Deep Tissue Massage Therapy

Deep Tissue Massage is defined as the systematic manipulation of the soft tissues of the body for a curative effect. Soft tissues are made more pliable through massage to promote circulation and blood flow and bring about healing effects: physical and psychological changes for general wellbeing.

The system of massage treatment involves the therapist using their hands to apply pressure on your body. Therapists use various techniques to work on the body: stroking and gliding (effleurage), kneading the soft tissues (petrissage), or what is termed ‘percussion’ (tapotement). (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 take 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, helping you to achieve your goals.

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


  • Insomnia
