Deep Tissue Massage Therapy in London

Deep, profound, and intense, a deep tissue massage applies firm pressure and slow strokes to reach deep into the layers of muscle and fascia — the connective tissues surrounding the muscles. Using a range of deep and powerful strokes  — and techniques such as myofascial release, cross-fibre work, friction, and alignment work — this is an intense version of your standard massage. Deep tissue massage is also perfect for anyone looking to heal a specific pain or ailment. 

Designed to break up tough scar tissue and ease adhesion and muscular knots, a deep tissue massage helps to relieve pain and chronic aches throughout the body.

What Are the Benefits of Deep Tissue Massage? 

A deep tissue massage is an intense form of massage that has a whole host of amazing health benefits. As with all massage forms, a deep tissue massage can help to boost your circulation,  instil a sense of deep calm and relaxation, and ease muscle aches. But if you suffer from specific muscular pain or have experienced an injury, a deep tissue massage is perfect for targeting your problem. 

A deep tissue massage is thought to help with the following issues:

  • Lower back, upper back and neck pain 
  • Muscle tension in the legs and upper back 
  • Postural issues 
  • Limited mobility 
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome and other such repetitive strain injuries 
  • Fibromyalgia

What to Expect from a Deep Tissue Massage?

A deep tissue massage will start with an initial consultation between you and your therapist. This consultation allows you to discuss your medical history, general lifestyle — and what you hope to get out of your session. Following the discussion,  your therapist will curate your massage experience. 

The massage will begin with lighter pressure and more gentle strokes to warm up the body and prepare the muscles. Once your therapist has primed the muscles, they will apply a range of techniques to take them deep into your tissue. They may use their fingertips, hands, elbows, forearms and knuckles throughout the massage to apply techniques such as: 

  • Stripping — Deep, gliding pressure that works along the length of the muscle fibres. 
  • Friction — Pressured strokes that work across the grain of the muscle to release adhesions and realign tissue fibres. 

After the massage, you may experience a little stiffness and possibly even some soreness, but that should subside after a day or two. If the pain continues, be sure to reach out to the massage therapist. Also, make sure you drink plenty of water to help flush out toxins and metabolic waste from the tissues.
