Deep Tissue Massage

Deep Tissue / Remedial Massage Therapy based in Chislehurst, Kent.

This type of massage can benefit all kinds of people - not just sports men and women. Deep Tissue uses techniques that works below superficial connective tissue to release old structural patterns and allow the free flow of nutrients and oxygen in the blood and so to the tissues themselves. It focuses on releasing the deeper myofascial restrictions of the deeper muscles, tendons and ligaments of the body. Deep Tissue Massage helps to free trapped nerves, oxygenate poorly circulated areas and allows the spine and joints to relax into alignment.

Deep Tissue Massage is great for people with stiff limbs, muscular tenderness and lack of flexibility. Although there are jokes about this kind of massage 'pummelling' the patient, I always make sure we work within the comfort zone to detect of stiff, knotted or painful areas and then release this chronic muscle tension through slow and deep strokes, with more direct pressure or friction applied across the grain of the muscles.

Soft Tissue Release is a combination of movement and manipulation by locking in to the relevant tissues, whilst simultaneously stretching and aligning muscle fibres - this is often a missing link in the treatment of tightness and restriction of muscles. Stretching is a technique to increase the client's range of movement & flexibility by lengthening and reducing muscle tension.

Neuro-muscular techniques (NMT) is used to alleviate the most extreme tension - to reduce knots and adhesions. NMT is an extension of deep friction & pressure techniques and is applied with thumbs, fingers, fists or elbows, and is a diagnostic palpatory tool designed to help assess and deal with chronic pain.

Throughout treatment I constantly assess and modify techniques used to ensure the massage produces the best possible results.

Testimonial from Neil in Bromley:
" Having had many massages in a number of places around the world, I can safely say that this was one of the best I have experienced. It was the perfect blend of relaxation and relief for sore muscles. Elkie was quickly able to identify my main areas of tension (calves, right shoulder) and concentrated on loosening these."
