Deep Tissue Massage Twickenham

If you want a deep and powerful massage in Twickenham for the whole body or for a pre-determined area like back and shoulders then a deep tissue massage is probably appropriate. This might be because you enjoy more pressure or it might be because you “feel tight” and want a firmer massage to relieve this sensation.

Like a sports massage the strokes in a deep tissue massage tend to be shorter and firmer than in a traditional relaxing or Swedish massage with the aim of affecting the deeper musculature as well as the fascia, the thin connective tissue that holds muscles, nerves, blood vessels and organs in place.

Alongside conventional massage strokes I can, where appropriate, also use more sophisticated techniques such as trigger pointing and joint mobilisation.

The benefits of a deep tissue massage in Twickenham

A deep tissue massage improves the flow of blood to treated areas and can have many positive effects on both mind and body including:

  • Reduced muscle soreness and stiffness deriving either from poor posture or exercise
  • Speeding up the rate of healing of damage caused to muscles by exercise
  • A reduction in stress and a feeling of relaxation
  • Improved sleep quality
  • A reduction in inflammation
  • An increase in range of motion such as a greater ability to turn your head from side to side.
  • A reduction in chronic pain
  • Boosting your immune system

A deep tissue massage treats large sections of your body such as the shoulders, back and legs, but it’s up to you if you want to specify areas you want to focus on.

The scope of a 90-minute-deep tissue massage in Twickenham tends to be greater with more time available to focus on key areas such as the back and shoulders as well as treating arms, hands, feet and the head.

If you don’t have one specific area of pain or tightness a deep tissue massage might be the best choice for you.
