The Deep Tissue Massage in our Southampton Massage Studio will help relieve tension deep within the muscles. Tense muscles can restrict oxygen and nutrients and lead to swelling and a build up of toxins, Deep Tissue Massage drains excess fluid and encourages the blood and lymph circulate effectively by releasing hard tension caused by tightened and knotted muscles fibres, ligaments or tendons and a build up of fascia, the connective tissue that can gather and tighten around tense areas.
It is particularly important to ensure you drink plenty of water after a Deep Tissue Massage, you may also be advised to do some stretches to help correct any postural problems. Deep Tissue Massage is also effective at lengthening ‘short muscles’, often represented as tight hamstrings or pectorals which can be the cause of further postural problems. Not only can Deep Tissue Massage offer instant relief, some people comment on feeling 'lighter' and 'free-er', relieving symptoms of pain, poor posture, lack of mobility, tightness in the muscles and stress. It is both corrective and relaxing.

Deep Tissue Massage is typically a lot stronger than other types of massage, there can be discomfort as the therapists work the tense areas, but it can feel enormously satisfying and you will feel much better in a day or two once your body has healed new and more relaxed. The massage works by slowly penetrating layers of muscle and tissue, to reach and relieve Deep Muscular Tension, quite often the cause of chronic pain, poor posture or restricted mobility. Expect a firm, precise Massage with stretching and soothing for the most effective Deep Tissue Massage around and long term relief from Pain and Tension! gradually working Deeper to work away ‘surface tension’ and reach the ‘knots’ or adhesions that lie beneath, often in the back, neck, shoulders, legs, pecs and glutes.
After checking your discomfort and comfort levels, your Massage Therapist will start by warming your muscles using Swedish Massage, they may ask you to perform some movements in order to trace the pattern of tension throughout the body down the trains of fascia and locate 'problem areas'. Then they will work the areas in order to release them, working gradually deeper and firmer to release deep muscular tension.
