Deep Tissue Massage
– Hackney & Tower Hamlets, East London E9 & E2
‘Amazing. Like being steam-rollered by pillows!’ SB, London E9
Deep tissue massage works on the deeper layers of muscle to provide relief from aches, pains and muscle knots, bringing a great release to the body and nourishment to the soft tissues.
A variety of massage techniques are used to give the greatest effect through the whole body.
Deep tissue massage is a great way to support the re-building of strength after injury. It can help scar tissue to heal well and give length to tight muscle fibres.
The massage is performed on a very comfortable massage couch. You will undress to your underwear and be covered by towels, and a lotion or oil is used to perform the deep tissue massage. You will be asked about any particular areas of discomfort and tension, and the practitioner will use her palms, fingers, forearms or elbows to apply the right amount of pressure depending on your needs and preferences.
This is a great form of massage for back, shoulder and neck tension or stiffness, as well as for those who spend their days either seated or standing for long hours.
Posture can be improved within a few sessions, which helps reduce pain and tension and brings greater ease.
Deep tissue massage should not be painful! Feedback is always welcome so that the massage remains effective and comfortable for you. Many people find that as they can relax, their muscles respond well and soften for the deeper work. Some people are surprised at how much pressure they enjoy, while others will benefit from lighter strokes to flush through congestion.
Spike studied deep tissue massage with a number of leading names in the industry and has provided massage to athletes, desk warriors, physical performers and other adults of all ages from 18 to 80 years old. The techniques will be modified to meet your needs and tissue condition, and offered with care and sensitivity.
For regular clients, there is also the option of choosing a chavutti thirumal massage: massage by foot pressure.
