Deep Tissue Massage

What is a deep-tissue massage? 

Deep tissue massage is a technique which uses firm pressure to reach the deeper layers of muscle tissue, tendons and the surrounding connective tissues (also known as fascia). Deep tissue massage therapy is often used as a treatment to break up scar tissue and break down muscle knots & adhesions. This relaxing and restorative practice is great for aiding the healing of sports injuries and for deep stress relief.

Whether you’re an athlete or office worker suffering from back pain, muscle injury or stress, a deep tissue massage is a great way to relieve physical tension that’s built up in your body. It’s also a great way to mentally unwind too. If you’re looking for a professional deep tissue back massage London that will provide effective relief, The Health Movement Clinic can help. Our massage therapists are highly trained at what they do, using specialist techniques to relieve pain and tension in any problem areas.

Experience Deep Tissue Massage

Deep tissue massage is a type of bodywork that focuses on the deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue, usually with more pressure than a typical Swedish massage or myofascial release. It often uses cross-fiber friction techniques, as well as direct deep finger pressure. Deep tissue massage may be used to relieve chronic aches and pain, or it may be part of an athlete's warm-up routine.

Deep Tissue Massage has several benefits. Some of these include:

Release of tight muscles and Trigger Points 

Provides a deep pressure to reduce pain from sensitive parts of the body. Deep tissue massage may be uncomfortable at times, but it is not harmful. If pain causes a sharp limp or causes you to wince, the pressure is too much. 

Decreases Swelling 

Slow strokes are performed to help decrease blood flow and reduce pressure on tissues, reducing pain, swelling, and inflammation of the joint or muscle. Deep Tissue Massage minimizes the size of swelling and fluid retention, improves tissue circulation and lymphatic drainage, which can speed up healing. Our professional masseuse is well versed in the pressure required to help with swelling and knows how to target specific areas.

Prevention of Pain

Our therapist uses Deep Tissue Massage to prevent pain, improve mobility, reduce scar tissue, and provide assistance post-surgery. This service can be utilized for almost any type of physical ailment or pain. It can also be used to help stretch tight muscles and improve range of motion, thus preventing future injuries.


The action performed during a massage helps produce a relaxing response in the body that allows you to let go of all your daily stresses and worries. Research has shown that just twenty minutes of massage therapy can significantly reduce cortisol, the stress hormone in your body.

Improve Mood and Mind 

When we feel better physically, we also feel better emotionally. Some studies suggest that massage therapy sessions may be helpful to people with depression and anxiety. For example, a study found that participants who underwent 15-minute massage therapy sessions had lower cortisol levels and a greater decrease in depression than those who did not receive massages.

Massage also increases serotonin, the chemical responsible for mood balance and well-being, in the brain.

Boosts Immune System 

Studies show that having a massage is an effective way to reduce the level of stress hormones. It helps the body to relax, and that means it also reduces your risk of getting sick. Not only that but massage therapist is trained in self-care education, so they remain healthy throughout their career.
