With regular treatments and as a body starts to heal and re-balance. These after-effects will subdue.

Typical contra-actions may include:

  • Tiredness due to release of toxins encouraged by the treatment and the initiation of healing energies, which require the body to rest
  • Muscular ache and/or headaches the nerve fibbers responding to the deep work undertaken
  • Heightened emotional state due to the positive release of deep-held feelings and emotions
  • Frequent urination due to stimulation of the lymphatic system
  • Changed sleep patterns you can fall asleep during the treatment.

Tapotement: a variety of percussive strokes to stimulate skin and muscles to increase blood flow.

What happens in a typical Deep Tissue Massage session?

The therapist will ask questions about your medical history; general health and lifestyle. This will help her decide which movements are most appropriate for you as an individual.

A session normally lasts for 60 minutes, and costs £40.

Other Benefits

There are so many more benefits to deep tissue massage and if you’ve never had one before, now is definitely the time to get one.

Remember prevention is better than cure. Once you show signs of improvement we will continue to work with you to keep harmony and balance already achieved. A regular treatment, depending on your timetable, will stop future stress accumulating.

We encourage you to have regular treatments to prevent illness and maintain a state of well being.

Post Treatment Advice

In order to get the most out of your treatment and to aid the healing process, it is advisable to:

  • Drink plenty of water. This helps flush out the toxins that have been released from your cells into your system.
  • Eat a light diet. This is to prevent energy needed for healing from going to your stomach to digest a heavy meal! Eat raw foods such as fruit and vegetables if possible for vitality and cleansing effects.
  • Avoid tea and coffee. These are stimulants and should be avoided after a treatment. Drink herbal teas or fresh fruit/vegetable juice instead.
  • Avoid alcohol and smoking.
  • Rest and relax as much as possible. This allows the body to commence healing.
