Remedial Deep Tissue Massage

Remedial Deep Tissue Massage focuses on realigning deep layers of the muscles and connective tissue or fascia. Where you feel chronic muscle tension in the body, there is usually what we call adhesion’s (rigid scar tissue) in the muscles, tendons and ligaments. Scar tissue is painful and can restrict your body movements and block circulation. Over time it can also encourage bad posture.

Our Remedial Deep Tissue Massage Edinburgh focuses on breaking down these adhesion’s and releasing the chronic tension that may have built up in the muscle over time. In order to do this, your Massage Therapist will use a variety of techniques depending on the severity of the muscular problem and within your pain threshold.

As well as trigger point technique and deep friction therapy, your massage therapist will also use classic massage strokes, but the movements will be much slower and deeper in order to correct the muscle fibres. Some discomfort and pain has to be expected when treating chronic muscle tension or adhesion’s but you should never be out of your comfort zone. Your therapist will be in continuous communication with you to ensure that this pain threshold is not broken and that you always remain comfortable.

A Remedial Deep Tissue Massage is recommended for individuals with consistent muscle pain and who may suffer from one of the following conditions:

  • Tension Headaches
  • Chronic Tension
  • Shoulder Pain
  • Upper & Lower Back Pain
  • Rounded Shoulders / Poor Posture
  • Tension, pain, general fatigue or heaviness in the lower limbs

All of these, and many more, can be successfully treated with our Remedial Deep Tissue Massage Edinburgh. If you have had a chronic issue for a long time or a specific injury you are better booking a Sports Massage or Physiotherapy appointment but please feel free to call us if you would like to discuss any of your symptoms and to find out which treatment would be most suited to you. Our consultations are included in the treatment time, so if it’s your first visit this may take a few more minutes but we do try to keep consultations shorter so you get the most hands on time possible.
