Deep Tissue


What is deep tissue massage (DTM)?
DTM is a highly beneficial physical therapy
which looks specifically at the muscles and their related structures. By working steadily and progressively the therapist will be able to identify:


  • The root cause of any pain.

  • Areas of the body that are ‘stuck’ and won’t move freely.

  • Structures that are misaligned.

  • Specific muscle knots and trigger points.

  • Linked areas of pain, tension and stress that will keep a problem going unless this is also addressed.

  • Referred pain pathways.

Therapy techniques include: Trigger Point therapy, myofascial therapy, MANIPULATION, flowing pressure techniques, stretching, resistance work and nerve and tissue release work.


What a treatment involves

A session is typically one hour long. There will be an opportunity to discuss specific issues or concerns, and identify the key problems that need to be addressed. We will then carry out the treatment and afterwards plan your aftercare and follow-up.


Remarkable results can be achieved even within a single session. For some types of problems a series of sessions is more appropriate for long lasting results:


  • Pain relief

    • Back, neck and shoulder pain

    • Headaches

    • Muscle knots and trigger points

    • Repetitive strain symptoms

    • Pulled muscles

    • Chronic tension pain

    • Joint pain including arthritis

    • Whiplash

    • Scar tissue pain and adhesions

  • Relaxation

  • Improved posture

  • Improved physical performance  

  • Injury prevention

  • Improved sleep

  • Improved range of movement and joint flexibility

  • Address feelings of fatigue and exhaustion.

“I suffer from tight muscles in my legs, which affect my balance and can limit movement. After seeing Rob for my first session I noticed a real difference - I was able to move more freely almost instantly. He has a really professional manner and put me at ease through the whole process, in the relaxing environment of his treatment room. I can’t speak highly enough of my experience!”
