Deep Tissue Massage

Deep Tissue Massage is a type of massage therapy that focuses on realigning deeper layers of muscles, fascia and connective tissue. It is especially helpful for chronically tense and contracted areas of the body, e.g. lower back tightness, stiff neck, sore shoulders.

The benefits of deep tissue massage on the body are numerous. Deep tissue massage benefits the body in the following ways; it:

  • Can alleviate pain and improve range of motion
  • Relaxes and softens injured, tired and overused muscles
  • Helps athletes of any level to prepare for and recover from strenuous workouts
  • Increases joint flexibility
  • Improves circulation and increases the flow of oxygen and nutrients to the tissues and vital organs
  • Improves posture by encouraging relaxation and lengthening of the affected muscles and tendons
  • Promotes tissue regeneration, reducing scar tissue and stretch marks
  • Exercises and stretches weak, tight or atrophied muscles
  • Enhances the body’s immune system by stimulating lymph flow; this is the body’s natural defence system
  • Lessens anxiety and depression
  • Releases endorphins that work as the body’s natural painkiller
