Deep Tissue /Remedial
Bodywork that aims to relieve tension in the deeper layers of tissue in the body. Hot stones may be used to enhance the massage.
Deep Tissue Massage is a highly effective treatment for releasing chronic pain in the muscles due to misalignment, repetitive motions, and lingering injuries. Due to the nature of the deep tissue work, open communication during the session is crucial to make sure the client is comfortable at all times. Keep in mind that soreness is fairly common after the treatment, and that plenty of water should be ingested to aid with the flushing and removal of toxins that will have been released from the deep tissue during the session. Trigger points may have become active due to physical, mental, and/or emotional stress. Once the trigger points are released, the muscle fibres realign and smooth, pain free movement is resumed.
Treatments may also include:
- muscle energy techniques (MET) to realign spinal vertebrae
- proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation (PNF) and Positional release techniques to release muscle tension
- mobilisations to free up joints
A blend of techniques that aims to enhance performance and help overworked muscles to recover quickly. Very effective pre and post race/competition.
