Soft Tissue Massage
Soft tissue massage is also known as 'Swedish' or 'classic' massage. It uses fundamental techniques to lift and knead skin and muscle away from multiple muscle layers, connective tissue and bone. It also rejuvenates fascial connective tissue, thus it also promotes good circulation, nutrition and drainage.
This is a good massage to choose if you want to feel relaxed, revitalised and pampered with a choice of more stimulating or relaxing techniques.
Deep Tissue Massage
Massage can also work deeper into your tissues to breakdown knotty muscular fibrosities caused by lack of use and stress as well as bad postural habits. Working through stubborn adhesions in muscles and fascia, potentially freeing neural pathways and removing stagnant sensitising chemicals that can irritate and cause painful trigger points.
Massage brings oxygenation and nutrition to thoroughly revitalise and heal on a physiological and metabolic level. A deep tissue massage can be used to target specific issues caused by lifestyle, including sports.
This is a powerful combination of techniques to encourage deep body and mind relaxation with positive suggestions. Researchers in this new area are calling it self-directed neuroplasticity.
Getting the body to relax is key to deeper mind relaxation and this can be used to deepen direct action for positive change and new habit formation. First session will be 90 minutes to include consultation. All follow up appointments will be 60 minutes.
