Deep tissue massage is uses more pressure than most other forms of massage as it aims to stretch and loosen muscles that need attention or have sustained injury.  Deep tissue massage is used to release chronic muscle tension through slower strokes and more direct deep pressure or friction applied across the grain of the muscles. Deep tissue massage usually focuses on more specific areas and may cause some soreness during or right after the massage. However, if the massage is done correctly you should feel better than ever within a day or two.

Why get a deep tissue massage?

It feels good and it is beneficial to your health. When muscles are stressed, they block oxygen and nutrients, leading to inflammation that builds up toxins in the muscle tissue. A deep tissue massage helps loosen muscle tissues, release toxins from muscles and get blood and oxygen circulating properly. Because many toxins are released, it's important to drink plenty of water after a deep-tissue session to help eliminate these toxins from the body.

Reflexology is a complementary therapy that works the principle that every organ and gland in the body has a corresponding area on the foot or hand.  By working the feet with specific moves, reflexology allows your body to re-balance enabling healing. The theory is that following illness, stress, injury or disease, the body is in a state of "imbalance", which blocks vital energy pathways preventing the body from functioning effectively, by clearing these blockages through reflexology, homeostasis (natural balance of the body) can be restored.

What is a holistic massage therapy treatment?  Well in short a massage tailored to your individual needs.  Holistic massage treats the cause as well as the symptom, so for example if you lift heavy items at work, or spend much of the day in the same driving position, a holistic massage will concentrate on the area that is giving you pain, but also find where the root of the problem is and treat this too so that your problem is less likely to recur.  You can have a full body holistic massage or just a particular area such as back, neck or shoulder massage. Basically, you book a period of time with your therapist and the treatment will be tailored to suit your problems.  If you would just like to relax, then a full body holistic massage treatment will also help you restore your inner balance.
