This form of massage uses firm pressure and stretching to deeply mobilise and loosen areas of tightness and restore flexibility and movement. In big muscle-groups such as the thigh or calf muscles, the deeper layers are often those performing the bulk of work during every-day life. The deep muscles of the back play a paramount role in the regulation of tone and strength of the overlying postural back muscles as well as the body’s position in space. Whether leg, back or other body part, the occurrence of tightness and pain in the body is often due to problems in these deeper muscle layers.
We use deep tissue massage to treat office workers who spend hours at a computer or desk, or those with active, busy lifestyles who need to rejuvenate themselves.
