Deep Tissue Massage (DTM)

Deep tissue massage is effective in helping with:

  • Releasing holding patterns, where tissue is bound down onto bony structures, inhibiting both lengthening and contracting of tissue. Examples include freeing movements within the ankle, knee and hip joints
  • Releasing or ungluing muscles from surrounding tissue at differing levels, which is particularly relevant to the larger muscle groups surrounding the legs and arms. Presence of joint torsion, for example at the knee and therefore pain is due to tissue not being able to glide properly
  • Targeting deep held trigger points in problematic areas, usually due to overuse, repetitive strain and holding fixed postures such as sitting at a desk or holding tools
  • Providing exercises to deal with persistent pain or weakness, this can include abdominal strengthening to help with persistent back pain or dealing with postural weakness where there is a reoccurrence of the problem following treatment
  • Prevents and reduces injury and muscle fatigue by removing the lactate or waste build up following intense muscle activity
  • Educating, understanding the difference between pain and therapeutic pressure. Many believe a good deep tissue massage should be painful, Deep tissue massage shouldn’t be painful to receive. At times it may be uncomfortable, but it shouldn’t be painful. If it is, the result can be disappointing.
