deep tissue Massage

For when it's time to work on specific muscle groups and get in deep to loosen up those tight tissues.

So what is Deep Tissue massage?

A Deep Tissue massage is a step up from Swedish massage, with a stronger pressure to really work into chronic tension points and release any attached pain.

You can book Deep Tissue Massage with a professional and experienced practitioner from 30mins/45mins/60mins/90mins. Our practitioners can focus on specific muscle groups within 30 min sessions. However, if you have two or more areas to work on (e.g. thighs and lower back), then we would suggest longer.

Frequently Asked Questions

I’ve been recommended a sports or deep tissue massage but unsure about which to book?

Deep Tissue massage (although deep!) focuses on newer or smaller areas of tension or stress throughout the body. Sports Massage hones in on larger, older or more established knots or previous injuries. Massage Me’s qualified and experienced sports massage practitioners have more extensive knowledge of anatomy than those with a holistic/relaxing background. This means they will conduct things like a postural consultation and discuss any injuries with you before proceeding to the treatment.

Are deep tissue massages painful?

A deep tissue massage is not always relaxing - but then that is often not the point of this style of massage! You might feel some discomfort as the Massage Me practitioner works on you to release engrained muscle tension. However our team will keep communicating with you to make sure you are comfortable and not in any pain.

What are the benefits of Deep Tissue massage?

The whole point of deep tissue massage is to get deep into your muscles. The Massage Me practitioner will keep in communication with you to gradually build up pressure throughout the session. This build up is important to make sure that your body warms up to the specific style of touch and pressure. For example, don’t be surprised when your practitioner uses elbows, fists, thumbs and knuckles to apply deep and consistent pressure!

When NOT to take Deep Tissue massage

Look at our other options if you :

  • Like a more relaxing massage - go for Swedish massage

  • Don’t like a hard pressure massage or are very sensitive to touch - again, go for a Swedish massage

  • Have a specific injury you want treatment for - try physiotherapy
