Deep Tissue Massage

Deep Tissue Massage is just as it sounds: the manipulation of the deeper layers of muscle and soft tissues in the body. Your massage therapist uses oils and direct pressure to relax the top layer of muscle in order to reach deeper layers of the muscle tissue. This type of massage can also help to relieve stress, chronic aches and pain.

At Pimlico Osteopathy, we may use similar techniques as part of your osteopathy treatment, as it is used for treating the muscles and connective tissues of the body. It can help get muscles in the best condition for sports activities, stretch out tight muscles, help speed up healing of injuries and assist recovery after an event.

What to expect from a Deep Tissue Massage

The massage can be stimulating or relaxing depending on the effects you want to achieve and the techniques used. A build-up of tension in the muscles from regular activity may lead to stresses in the joints, ligaments and tendons as well as in the muscles themselves. These imbalances can cause discomfort and inhibit performance in sport. The deep tissue massage therapist can detect variations in the soft tissues and then use specific techniques to release those areas and make the tissues more supple.

If you’re training for an event such as a Marathon, or have been through a period of great stress, deep tissue massage can be beneficial as an ongoing treatment to help the tissues recover from the increased demands of training or tension, and to help you work on muscles that may be tight and affecting your movement.
