Deep Tissue Massage
This form of massage is used to release, re-align and rebalance the muscles and joint in the body. It has many benefits including:
– Relieving post exercise muscle soreness
– Reducing stress
– Help with pain
– Improve muscle and joint function
– Facilitate muscle healing
– Improve flexibility
– Reduce chance of future injury
This is the style of massage people are most likely to think of when they think of massage. A therapist uses a combination of movements, including long strokes and gentle gentle kneading. It’s primary goal is relaxation, although it has been shown to have other benefits including improved circulation.
As qualified Physiotherapists, we can adapt the treatment to meet your needs. You can have a full body massage or choose to focus on a specific body part. You can also sit or lie in whatever position is most comfortable for you.

The physiotherapist will come to your home at a time that is convenient to you.
We will start by asking you a bit about any specific muscle problems or pain you have to ensure we can tailor our massage to your needs. We will also briefly discuss your medical history and medication.
We will set up a massage table but you will provide your own towels. We will make sure you’re comfortable. It would be worth considering the room temperature in your home before the massage. During the massage we will always work around what you feel you need.
