The application of sustained pressure, targeting inner areas of muscles and tendons. This helps with injury healing, relaxation, stress reduction, muscular tension, blood flow, blood pressure and inflammation (Koren & Kalichman, 2018).

Deep tissue massage offers both physical and psychological benefits. It can relieve muscle pain and stiffness and provide stress-relieving relaxation for the body and mind. The technique that’s mainly used to treat musculoskeletal issues, such as strains and sports injuries, involves applying sustained pressure using slow, deep strokes to target the inner layers of your muscles and connective tissues. This helps to break up scar tissue that forms following an injury and reduce tension in muscle and tissue.

However, since our body is our carrier for emotional and psychological pain also, massage may promote faster psychological and physical healing, by increasing blood flow, promoting relaxation, channelling traumatic energy around the body, and reducing inflammation.

Our massage therapists are also trauma-informed specialists, with a deep understanding of the connection between the mind and the body.
