Back pain and Neck pain

What is Deep Tissue Massage?
Deep tissue massage is a type of massage therapy that focuses on realigning deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue.

It is especially helpful for chronically tense and contracted areas such as stiff necks, low back tightness, and sore shoulders.

Some of the same strokes are used as classic massage therapy, but the movement is slower and the pressure is deeper and concentrated on areas of tension and pain.
"After a very stressful couple of weeks I found the muscles across my shoulders so knotted that I was barely able to move my neck. Chris carefully talked me through the pain that I was experiencing and got right to the heart of the problem.
I was very impressed by the care that I was given and after just one massage session the increase in movement was incredible. Chris was very professional and knowledgeable and I would recommend him without hesitation"

How does Deep Tissue Massage work?
When there is chronic muscle tension or injury, there are usually adhesions (bands of painful, rigid tissue) in muscles, tendons, and ligaments.

Adhesions can block circulation and cause pain, limited movement, and inflammation.

Deep tissue massage works by physically breaking down these adhesions to relieve pain and restore normal movement.
Deep Tissue & Sports Massage can help to decongest and improve the condition of the muscle which will alleviate the symptom.

Regular massages assist to increase Lymphatic circulation and regulate the flow of fluid throughout the entire body. This nourishes and cleanses cells, flushes the body of harmful wastes and toxins, increases resistance to sickness and disease.
