Our recommendation

“The strong pressure of this treatment is great for freeing up tense muscles while realigning tissue and speeding up recovery” says Nadege, our lead therapist.

“Expect elbow, fist and forearm work with a gradual increase in pressure.”

Bear in mind it’s not uncommon to feel slightly sore after a deep tissue treatment, but this should ease off over the course of 72 hours.

Treatment

During your treatment

When they arrive, your therapist will check where your problem areas are to get a feel for how they can help. They’ll also chat through your medical history and any current or past injuries.

They’ll start with fairly light motions, gradually building up pressure throughout the treatment to allow your body to adjust. They may use their elbows, fists, thumbs and knuckles for deeper pressure.

FAQ

Covid-19 safety

After you’ve booked, your therapist will reach out to you via the Urban app to run through some pre-screening checks and make sure a home visit is right for you. If it’s not, they’ll advise what to do instead and we’ll refund you in full.

All Urban pros are trained in Covid-19 safety and will wear a mask and full PPE to your appointment. You’ll also need to wear a mask, wash your hands and help your pro avoid contact with other members of your household.
