Deep Tissue Massage

Deep Tissue Massage - what is it?

Deep tissue massage Baldock Hertfordshire

Deep Tissue Massage is a therapy designed to correct muscular/skeletal imbalances.  It does this by first releasing the superficial muscles enabling the therapist to reach the smaller deeper muscles.

The therapy benefits the Client by working on a whole host of the body’s key systems.  These are:

The muscular system, skeletal, lymphatic drainage, circulatory, neurological, digestive system, respiratory, skin and endocrine.

We use ‘no hands massage’ to achieve effective results.

What is no hands massage ?

This is a technique that uses the soft fleshy part of the forearm and the transference of weight through the feet by ‘leaning’ on the Client. Using the forearms allows a greater muscle area to be covered and gives the Client better blood flow to the muscle.  This, in turn, provides a more beneficial  oxygen and nutrient supply thereby enabling a faster release of toxins from the muscle fibres.

The overall Client benefit as opposed to using the hands to massage is a more rapid and beneficial response which is longer lasting.

What are the benefits ?

The benefits to the Client are: less intense pain, a deeper feeling of relaxation and well-being, quicker results, and a reduced chance of healing crisis.

Clients often report feelings of euphoria after treatment and some experience lightheadedness. 

For this reason we recommend Clients refrain from driving for 5-10 minutes after treatment and drink plenty of water to flush the toxins. (This time is factored into the treatment).

Such is the power of this treatment that most Clients return  monthly for maintenance.  Many have been coming for twenty years!
