About deep tissue massage
A real therapy for tense areas. Your body will feel more flexible, less restricted, realigned and relaxed. Deep tissue massage targets the muscles, the fascia and stimulates the connective tissue through the use of slow strokes and direct finger and sometimes elbow pressure. Enjoy an at-home deep tissue massage and feel the difference it can make to your body.
How is deep tissue massage different?
Although not a relaxation technique, a deep tissue massage will restore bodily vitality by realigning the muscles and increasing their flexibility. A special blend of essential oils full in beneficial nutrients will be used to minimise the skin-to-skin friction between you and your therapist. Recharge your muscles with some natural wholesomeness. Book an at-home deep tissue massage today and experience physical and mental relief, increased freedom of movement and a boost that will give you the zest to take charge of every day!

Too much information?
Do you just need straight answers to your questions? Then this section is for you.
What is a Deep Tissue Massage?
Deep Tissue Massage is similar in nature to a relaxation massage but your therapist will apply a firmer pressure. It is ideal for those who enjoy a firmer massage that is also beneficial in releasing muscle tension as the focus is on the deepest layers of the muscle.
What is the difference between Remedial & Deep Tissue Massage?
Remedial massage is often confused with the deep tissue because they are both seemingly firm massages. However, in reality they are very different. A remedial massage is for people who have suffered injuries or have sore/stiff muscles. Pretty much areas that need to be worked on. It can be very beneficial for individuals experiencing lower back pain, shoulder pains or headaches.
Deep Tissue massage on the other hand, is a full body relaxation style massage involving firmer pressure as it targets the deeper layers of the muscle. Deep tissue massage is the massage of choice for individuals suffering from chronic back pains, neck pains, shoulder pains, headaches, plantar fasciitis, or anyone seeking deep pressure and what we could call “good” pain.
This is my first massage. What should I expect?
Please make sure you hydrate yourself before the massage. Alcohol is a bit no no. If you are a first time client, your therapist will require you to fill out a consultation form unless you have already filled it out online during the booking process. Your therapist will discuss your main concerns that you wish to address during the treatment and determine if the selected treatment is appropriate for you.
It is important to make yourself comfortable. When the therapist needs to adjust your position, she will either move you or will ask you to move as needed. You can change your position anytime to make yourself more comfortable. While many people close their eyes and relax during a session, others prefer to talk. It is your massage and whatever feels natural to you is the best way to relax.
What are the benefits of Deep Tissue Massage?
Deep Tissue massage shares a bunch of benefits that you will enjoy.
- Removes toxins from your body thus stimulating better blood circulation.
- Has the capacity to calm the your nervous system thus easing you from discomfort.
- Helps repair tissues and maintain health of the cells in your body.
- Eases tension, stiffness and muscular dysfunctions.
- Helps lower your stress levels
How will i feel after a deep tissue massage?
After a deep tissue massage you will feel rejuvenated and relaxed. You will experience greater range of motion and flexibility. For the first few hours the massaged areas may feel a bit tender but that feeling will subside. Drink plenty of water before and after the massage to help flush out the toxins from the tissues. You can have a warm bath, preferably using magnesium salts (these are the better kind, despite the marketing of Epsom salts. If you can’t source magnesium chloride salts, Epsom will do.) The salt bath will promote restoration of the muscle fibres, especially if combined with some stretching.
Can any therapist perform a deep tissue massage?
Because deep tissue massage aims at the deeper layers of the muscles, this type of massage must only be performed by a professional massage therapist. Your therapist must possess a certificate 4 in massage therapy as a minimum qualification. A qualified massage therapist has the knowledge and skills to give you that much needed relaxation and relief without the risk of injuries during the massage.

I had a C-Section. Can I have a deep tissue massage?
C-section births have a higher risk factor than natural births because it is an invasive procedure. During the healing process, massage, deep pressure and vibration should all be avoided. The C- section scar takes about 12 weeks to heal completely and movements in the wrong direction can aggravate the scar. For that reason, we can not offer a full body massage in the first 3 months after giving birth by C-section
