What is Deep Tissue massage?

Deep Tissue massage is a full-body massage using oil (the oil can be either scented or unscented). The focus is on relieving muscle tension.

Awareness is the First Step

What happens during a Deep Tissue massage?

The treatment lasts approximately an hour. You will be required to take off most of your clothes apart from your underwear (you will however be covered up during the treatment).

How to prepare for a treatment?

  • Don’t eat a heavy meal up to two hours before your treatment.
  • Avoid alcohol or recreational drugs prior to a treatment as this could affect the outcome.
  • Refer to the list below for any conditions not suitable for Deep Tissue. If you are unsure please feel free to contact me.
  • Before your first session please give some thought to any injuries, previous operations, etc. All information is treated confidentially.

Deep Tissue massage is not suitable for the following conditions:

  • Infectious skin disease, rash, or open wounds
  • Immediately after surgery
  • Immediately after chemotherapy or radiation, unless recommended by your doctor
