A deep tissue massage is similar to a swedish massage but it uses firmer pressures and can be targeted to specific areas of pain and tension. This treatment is perfect if you are suffering from severe pain, recovering from a soft tissue injury, going through muscular tension or if you are stressed and seeking relaxation.
This body massage targets a specific problem area to stimulate blood flow, to kick start your body's natural healing process. Before your massage, we will go through any problems you may be having and what areas you would like targeting. In order to handle deep muscle layers, connective tissue and to break up adhesions. We use an array of techniques (usually involving my knuckles, fingertips, forearm and elbows to apply different types of pressure). However, if at any point it starts to become uncomfortable, just let me know and I can reduce the pressure.
It reduces anxiety, stress, tension, improves athletic recovery, breaks up scar tissue and releases 'happy hormones' such as serotonin. You may also notice muscle pain relief as the massage releases knots and improves elasticity. Once your massage is complete, it is perfectly normal to experience some aching which will pass in a couple of days.
As a massage therapist, I have completed a number of CPD courses and qualifications such as a Level 5 BTEC Professional Diploma in Soft Tissue Therapy. LWB is a member of the Sports Therapy Organisation and the complementary and Natural Healthcare Council - so you can be assured the massage therapy you are receiving is professional.
We moved to our current base in 2015 and since then we are proud to have grown and grown and gained a loyal client basis. I get to know each customer and adapt the treatment to suit them. As well as treating pain you are experiencing, I also try to diagnose and treat the cause of the pain. We have many forms of massage therapy which can be selected based on what the diagnosis is.
