DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE
Deep Tissue isn't a firm Swedish massage. Neither should it be borderline agony.
The therapist uses forearms, guided elbows, soft fists and reinforced hands to sink deeper into tense muscles. Rocking techniques are incorporated, prompting the nervous system to relax. The work is slower so that fatigued, knotted muscles soften to let you in, rather than contract protectively. Correct body mechanics enable the practitioner to apply controlled pressure by leaning in or pulling back, rather than just pushing harder.
If you are considering deep tissue massage to address ongoing pain, tightness and restriction, you would be better served booking a CLINICAL APPOINTMENT or TREATMENT PACKAGE to assess and treat WHY your body has developed these Protective mechanisms & Compensation strategies.
We do not randomly release, stretch or mobilise tight muscles and restricted fascia without clinical consideration, as it will clearly be tight for a reason. Much better to figure out WHY. Precision neurologic & functional assessments to address ongoing issues are beyond the scope of massage appointments.

If you are looking for more than a perfunctory skin polish or have been palmed off with "firm Swedish".... you are in the right place.
* PLEASE NOTE - If you are considering massage to address ongoing pain, tightness and restrictions, you would likely be better served with a Clinical Bodywork Package so that we can assess and correct the underlying neurological, functional and structural causes.
