Most clients come for their first deep tissue massage when they are injured or in pain.  They get great relief from the treatment.  However, we want to work with our clients on a self-care and maintenance programme so they embed massage into their life so they can maintain optimum posture and alignment, ward off aches, pains and tension before they escalate and help manage the stresses and strains of day to day life.  It’s much easier to prevent an injury than to treat an injury.

How often will I need a deep tissue massage? 
Unlike remedial massage, deep tissue therapy may only be needed for one session or depending on your lifestyle a block of sessions.

Does deep tissue massage hurt? To get to the deeper layers of muscles requires greater pressure and occasionally you may feel a little discomfort. However, the skill of an experienced masseuse means that you should not be in pain as there are many techniques which can be used to manipulate the deep layers of muscles without inducing pain.

Should I try and stay awake during my treatment? It is perfectly normal to fall asleep during your treatment. Most massage aims to relax you and reduce your tension and if you do fall asleep then I will have achieved that goal.

Will there be any side effects of the massage? It is very common to have flu like symptoms after your treatment as massage removes toxins from the body. Also, many people feel lightheaded as they get up from the massage table but this passes very quickly. Often, dehydration is common as massage will help remove toxins from the body so it is very important to keep your levels of hydration up after the treatment.

A great deep tissue massage on my injured hamstring by James in a peaceful environment

I went to James with a few queries about tension in my back and other areas and the want for a deep tissue massage, but came out feeling more relaxed and knowledgable then I would of known! A professional yet easy and comfortable experience where James helped pin point some areas which were causing discomfort and a slightly off posture. Very informative and more importantly I found James honest regarding his suggestions for me. The massage was fantastic and I felt thoroughly relaxed afterwards. Thanks James! Will be back again soon.

I had a deep tissue massage with James last week and it was absolutely perfect! I consider myself very picky with massages and can honestly say this one was one of the best I have ever had. I will definitely be back, and will look into purchasing a package. Thank you!

I’ve suffered with back pain and headaches as a result of my work for years now. I booked a deep tissue massage and explained my issues with James who gave an incredible massage. My back has been so much better as a result. Thank you.
