Deep Tissue Massage

Deep tissue massage can help in the recovery of many soft tissue injuries including muscle strains, tears and tightness. Having a regular, or maintenance, deep tissue massage can also help prevent tension from building up and therefore avoiding another painful episode.


Deep tissue massage is a deeper form of massage targeting areas of tension in the muscles. It involves using sustained pressure with slow, deep strokes to target the inner layers of your muscles and connective tissues. This helps to break down scar tissue that forms following an injury.

Deep tissue massage is used for chronic aches and pain, even if you are not involved in any sporting activity, a deep tissue massage can benefit you. Tension can build up in the muscles, whether it is from the stresses and strains of everyday life, digging up weeds in the garden or poor posture adopted in the working environment.


Deep tissue massage has many recognised benefits, these include:

  • Reducing any stiffness or soreness from training
  • Alleviates the effects of stress / tension and aids relaxation
  • Maintaining and increasing flexibility
  • Stimulates and increases circulation
  • Provides pain relief and reduces swelling
  • Promotes recovery following an injury and helps to reduce the risk of re-injury
  • Reduces scar tissue
  • Improves posture 

It has also been shown to help with fibromyalgia, high blood pressure, headaches, sciatica and tennis elbow. Having deep tissue massage frequently will leave the muscles in optimal condition, free of lesions and trigger points helping to improve daily function and sports performance. A maintenance massage every 4-6 weeks helps prevent tension from building back up in the muscles.

What to expect

After receiving a deep tissue massage you may feel some soreness from the treatment which could last between 24-48 hours. This is normally felt most after your first treatment when it can be more of a shock to the soft tissues. We advise to take it easy and to avoid any strenuous exercise in the 24 hours following a deep tissue massage. Having a deep tissue massage will stimulate the lymphatic system, which in turn drives out toxins. We recommend drinking plenty of water to flush out these toxins otherwise you may experience a slight headache.
