Deep Tissue & Therapeutic Massage

Deep Tissue Massage focuses on areas of tension, stiffness
and pain in the muscles and joints.
Applying deep pressure can:

* release tension, stiffness and pain 
* increase flexibility and mobility 
* improve physical performance 
* speed up recovery from injuries 
* break down old scar tissue and adhesions

Therapeutic Massage is deeply relaxing and calming
but energising, providing:

* general all-over body maintenance 
* balancing of digestive, nervous and other body systems 
* enhanced immune system 
* re-alignment of body posture
