Deep Tissue massage can be used to ease muscle tension and help with a range of health concerns. It works deep within the muscles and uses firm pressure, mobilisation and sometimes stretching techniques to loosen areas of tightness, restoring flexibility and movement. It is perfect for areas with chronic tension, such as stiffness in the neck, tightness in the lower back and sore shoulders. Deep tissue massage can also help speed up recovery from sports and other injuries.
