I had been suffering from a stiff shoulder and neck pain for a week before going to see Leslie.  She found the knots straight away and her deep tissue massage has really helped to alleviate the pain and tension.  Thank you and I promise not to leave it so long next time!   LW

Just had another amazing massage.  Leslie has a firm but precise pressure and can seek out knots of tension from their hiding places.  Leslie intuitively adapts the depth of pressure according to the needs of the area being worked on and flows swiftly into a relaxing natural facelift massage.  Can't wait for the next one!   DM

Great session getting my neck, shoulders and legs worked through with Leslie Kelly.  Walked out feeling totally relaxed and at ease.  I would highly recommend Leslie to anyone.   TM

Deep tissue massage concentrates on the deep layers of muscle and fascia in the body to help ease tension and start to eradicate knots and adhesions. By using deep finger pressure and slow, firm strokes, deep tissue massage can be used to treat a variety of physical imbalances.  

Deep tissue massage techniques are designed to assist in correcting problems and imbalances in soft tissues that are cased by repetitive physical activity or trauma.   You will find that a deep tissue session is more interactive than a Swedish massage session as I need feedback from you when working on trigger points to eliminate pain and relax the muscles.

 

Deep tissue work can also help to alleviate muscle tension that is too often a side effect of chronic pain by helping to loosen the tight tissue clusters and remove waste product.

 

Over time regular deep tissue massage can help break up scar tissue in the body through improvements to lymphatic circulation and drainage and by improving flexibility and range of motion in the affected area.  Scar tissue is often associated with ongoing pain and stiffness and regular deep tissue massage session can help to improve these symptoms.  Deep tissue massage is also very effective to treat injured muscles as it facilitates the movement of toxins from the muscle and helps to stretch tight muscle mass to promote healing.  As massage also helps to relax muscle, it can help reduce the pain casued by injuries too, making deep tissue massage a great modality to rehabilitate sports injury.

For those suffering from chronic stress and all its possible side effects, such as tension headaches, rigid shoulders and tight muscles; deep tissue massage can be very helpful.  You are likely to feel renewed, revitalised and more able to face your challenges again.

The benefits of deep tissue massage include:

  • stimulation of blood and lymph flow, increasing the supply of oxygen and removal of toxins

  • loosens subcutaneous tissue and fascia to increase muscle pliability and tissue permeability

  • reduces swelling, bruising and pain after injury

  • speeds up the healing process

  • breaks down and reduces adhesions between injured or unhealthy muscle fibres

  • increases the range of movements in the joints

  • reduces stress on other muscle groups that may overcompensate for the injured area

  • stretches specific localised areas of tissue, leading to greater range of movement

  • positively affects the nervous system by stimulating nerve receptors to reduce pain

Please note that we advise no strenous activity or exercise for 48 hours following a session to allow your body to come back into balance and for your muscles to fully recover.

(There are some contraindications to this therapy so we will have a quick chat about your health.)
