What is deep tissue massage?
Deep tissue massage is a massage 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.

Repetitive strain injuries e.g. Carpal tunnel syndrome
Break down scar tissue
Muscle tension and spasm

Is there a consultation process?
Yes. If you have a computer, to save your treatment time, we’ll send you a consultation form to complete before you come along for your deep tissue massage. This will allow you to detail any conditions you have such as aches and pains, allergies etc. This form will remain confidential between you and your therapist. You will need to sign the form to say that you are happy to go ahead with the treatment.
When you arrive we’ll chat through your consultation form to fully understand what you would like to get out of your deep tissue massage and establish any areas that will require additional treatment.
Where will I be treated?
Your deep tissue massage will be in a comfortable, calm treatment room with soft lighting.
After your consultation, your therapist will show you to your treatment room where
you will undress to your lower underwear whilst the therapist is out of the room.
You will then lie on the bed, cover yourself with 2 luxury towels & only then will
your therapist re-
Who will treat me?
Generally Charlton will be your massage therapist, if you would feel more comfortable with a female massage therapist, then please say so at the time of booking and we will book you in with our female therapist if available.
What will happen during the treatment?
During your deep tissue massage, your body will be covered at all times with soft towels, with the exception of the area you are having worked with deep tissue massage of course! Your modesty will be maintained at all times throughout your massage treatment.
What do I do during a massage therapy treatment?
Make yourself comfortable. If your therapist wants you to adjust your position, he
or she will either move you or will ask you to move as necessary. Otherwise, change
your position anytime to make yourself more comfortable. A deep tissue massage is
not particularly relaxing as it aims to correct tissue damage -
During a deep tissue massage your body releases toxins. This process can mean that your body temperature can change at any time, so please do say if you become cold. Likewise, if the pressure is too light or hard, then please feel free to say as everyone is different.
How will I feel after a deep tissue massage?
You may feel tired or relaxed after your massage, or even sometimes emotional, however, most people will then feel rejuvenated and full of energy. You may experience some aches and pains for around 24 hours after your treatment as the body flushes the toxins that have been released. In order to speed this process along, drink lots of water after your massage.
How often will I need a deep tissue massage?
Most likely 2 or 3 treatments will be sufficient to achieve a long lasting relief from most conditions. However, this will be dependent on your problem & your lifestyle and some people may required further treatments. We do encourage you to return occasionally though for maintenance treatments.
Why would I not be able to have a massage?
There are a few conditions which mean deep tissue massage would not be the best holistic therapy for you. In this instance, we wouldn’t be able to treat you with deep tissue massage, but there are plenty of other therapies that would be more suitable and we can help and advise you in making the best choice.
The following conditions would not be suitable:
Infectious skin disease, rash, or open wounds
Immediately after surgery
Immediately after chemotherapy or radiation, unless recommended by your doctor
People prone to blood clots. There is a risk of blood clots being dislodged. If you have heart disease, check with your doctor before having a massage
Pregnant women should check with their doctor first if they are considering getting a massage.
If you have a bruise, inflamed skin, unhealed wounds, tumours, abdominal hernia, or areas of recent fractures the massage will work around these areas.
Please Note: Deep tissue massage is a totally safe and complementary treatment (it does not replace medical treatment).If you are in any doubt at all, please consult with your GP prior to treatment
