Deep Tissue Massage
Is probably the most well known of all massage treatments. It is a hands on treatment that mainly utilizes deeper pressure, and a slower tempo. Again this massage modality is based upon the person, never will the Therapist go to the pressure that they think you may want. You are in control of the speed, pressure and depth. There is no “one size fits all” approach to it. We are not all the same, so why should a massage be?
A Deep Tissue Massage seems to work really well to reduce pain and tension in individuals who have healthy un-injured muscular tissue. Typically plenty of patients use this as a stand alone treatment, if they are just looking to reduce painful sensations and increase range of movement. If you are struggling with an injury we would typically use Deep Tissue Massage as a added benefit and include it in a more structured rehabilitation plan, if this is you why not check out our Rehabilitation and Movement Therapy here: https://synergistmovementtherapy.co.uk/movement-therapy/
