Deep Tissue Massage concentrates on the muscles at a deeper level to release muscle tension, relieve injuries and eliminate scar tissue. This is a highly effective treatment for many clients who prefer a firmer, deep massage, suffer with various injuries and also those with pre existing conditions such as: Back, Neck and Shoulder Pain, Fibromyalgia, Frozen Shoulder, Back, Joint Pain, Repetitive Strain Injuries. Sciatica, Tennis Elbow and overworked muscles generally.
Deep Tissue Massage incorporates a "toolbox of skills" acquired by our practitioners including; Soft Tissue Release (STR), Muscle Energy Techniques (MET), Post Isometric Relaxation (PIR) and Reciprocal Inhibition (RI), identification of both active and latent trigger points, myofascial release and deep neuromuscular techniques. Here at Serenity Station we may automatically implement some of these techniques into a treatment where required or we can focus on a particular area for a given length of time.
Benefits of deep tissue include:
- Releases chronic muscle tension
- Promotes restoration of dysfunctional tissue
- Helps to eliminate scar tissue
- Increases overall strength, mobility and flexibility
- Improves circulation
- Reduces pain
In addition to the Deep Tissue Massage we provide seated massage treatments which are popular for clients wanting to stay fully clothed and sample a deeper massage. These are also available in our Wellness in the Workplace packages.
