Deep Tissue Massage is a technique that focuses on the deeper layers of muscle tissue. It aims to release the chronic patterns of tension in the body through slow strokes and deep finger pressure on the contracted areas, either following or going across the fibres of the muscles, tendons and fascia. Also helps to break up and eliminate scar tissue.

Deep tissue massage usually focuses on more specific areas and may cause some soreness during or right after the massage, but if it's done right the client should feel better than ever within a day or two. Deep Tissue Massage is often used in combination with other massage procedures such as those used in Remedial and Sports Massage.

On-site massage is an effective way of offering the benefits of massage in the workplace and other public areas. A growing number of businesses are now providing this facility to their employees as part of an overall employee health and benefits programme. Studies show that reducing stress in the workplace translates to a reduction in sick leave, an increase in morale and a more productive workforce.

An On-site massage can be both relaxing and invigorating, helping to relieve stress and muscle tension and to renew energy levels. It is a short (15 to 30 minutes) massage with the client sitting in a special portable massage chair. The client remains fully clothed and no oils are used.

Treatment is based on a traditional Chinese Acupressure sequence, which incorporates gentle movements and pressure, applied to areas of the head, neck, shoulders, back, arms and hands. On-site massage has the same beneficial effects as other massage, these include:


With today's high pressure living and working environment more and more people are suffering from stress-related illnesses, including back problems, repetitive strain injuries and other postural and physical problems caused by sitting at workstations for long periods of time. Receiving massage, especially in the workplace, helps create awareness in the recipient of their posture and their body in general making them more receptive to healthy attitudes and ideas.
