Deep Tissue Massage
What is Deep Tissue Massage?
Deep tissue massage involves applying firm pressure strokes to the skin to release tension in the underlying muscles and connective tissues. Strokes may be applied following the direction of muscle fibres for a stretching effect, or across the fibres to break down fibrous adhesions and scar tissue which build up due to injury or chronic muscle tension. As this tension is released physically from the body, a corresponding release in mental/emotional tension may be experienced. Because stress contributes greatly to the creation of the physical tension stored in the body, by releasing it, the mind is also relieved.
Deep Tissue/Holistic Massage – with Paula Chapman
Holistic massage is the perfect therapy if you’re looking to relax, unwind and feel more grounded and at the same time reduce pain and discomfort while improving your overall health and well-being. This holistic approach aims to restore balance within the whole body, taking into account physical, mental and emotional factors.
Treatments are guided by my knowledge and intuition and will be tailored to each individual. I will combine a range of techniques including deep tissue, fascial, heat therapy and mobilisations depending on your unique needs and what I feel will provide the most effective outcome.
