What a deep tissue does
Works out tension and soothes aches
Frees up movement
Helps muscles to recover after activity
Why you should try it
The power of this treatment is perfect for working out tension, realigning muscle fibres and speeding up recovery. Therapists' techniques include elbow, fist and forearm work, gradually increasing in pressure.
What happens during your deep tissue massage
We recommend a 90-minute treatment – the perfect length for a full-body deep tissue.
Your therapist will start with a quick consultation to understand any problem areas you want them to focus on. Then they'll begin your treatment, starting with light pressure that slowly gets more powerful. They'll work out knots with their elbows, fists, forearems and knuckles.
It’s normal to feel slightly sore after a deep tissue treatment, but this shouldn't last longer than 72 hours.
