Deep Massage

While deep massage is often relaxing, the end goal of the session or series of treatments  is far more than simply relaxation. Therapeutic goals such as pain relief, can vary considerably between massage therapists and clients.

In some cases, deep massage is recommended by a health professional and may be performed as part of a more wide ranging (or multi-disciplinary) treatment plan. For example, someone currently receiving  Physiotherapy, Osteopathy or Chiropractic treatment for an injury may also have regular therapeutic massage to help speed up recovery. Deep massage has the additional benefits of loosening muscles and increasing their flexibility.

People can also use deep massage as a standalone treatment. Many of our clients include athletes, manual workers or stressed out office workers and they all receive regular deep massage to help keep themselves in good physical condition.

Hot Stone Massage

Hot Stone Massage

Smooth water-heated stones are used with Deep Tissue and traditional Swedish Massage techniques to help warm and relax tired and overworked muscles. The warmth of the stones helps to penetrate deep into the muscle layers helping to melt away tension, ease stiffness and increase circulation.
