Deep Tissue Massage Muswell Hill

Deep Tissue Massage Muswell Hill

Deep Tissue Massage Muswell Hill uses firm pressure and slow strokes to reach deeper layers of muscle and fascia (the connective tissue surrounding muscles).Online booking

Whilst some of the strokes are the same as in Swedish massage, the pace is slower and pressure applied is stronger and concentrated on painful and problem areas.

Techniques are applied using forearms, elbows and knuckles as well as hands in order to break up scar tissue and physically break down muscle “knots” or adhesions (bands of painful, rigid tissue). These “knots” can disrupt circulation and cause pain and inflammation and limit range of movement.

Deep Tissue Massage can be used for chronic aches and pains and contracted areas such as a stiff neck and back. Leg muscle tightness, and sore shoulders, and may help with the following conditions: Massage for back pain and limited mobility, Massage for recovery from injury, Massage for posture. Massage for Muscle tension in the hamstrings, glutes, IT band, legs, quadriceps. Massage for Fibromyalgia.

After your massage you may feel a little stiff or sore, this should subside within a day. Drinking water after your massage may help to flush the metabolic waste from the tissues.

From the FHT Website.. Massage involves working the soft tissue of the body, to ease day-to-day stresses and muscular tension, and promote relaxation. It helps to increase delivery of blood and oxygen to the treated areas and can also be used in support of other therapies to assist in the rehabilitation of muscular injuries.

There is a growing body of evidence to suggest that massage can be effective in helping to treat certain chronic conditions, such as fibromyalgia and low back pain. In guidelines produced in 2009 by the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE), manual therapies – including massage – are recommended for the early management of persistent, non-specific low back pain.

We continue to have a number of infection control measures in place, for the safety of our clients and therapists.

This includes:  Handwashing protocols for therapists and clients, with instructions at hand washing sinks. Hand sanitiser in all therapy rooms, and the reception area, along with anti-bacterial spray for cleaning between each client. Opening windows to air treatment rooms for at least 10 minutes between each client.
