Questions and Answers.
We offer deep tissue massage treatments in Sutton Coldfield and the surrounding areas as part of our mobile massage service.
This form of massage uses a combination of traditional massage techniques as well as compression and stretching to deliver deep relaxation to your muscles that are sometimes problematic to reach. Whether you’re looking for an all-over body treatment or would like your therapist to concentrate on a specific focus area, our Deep Tissue Massage can help to alleviate the stresses and strains of your hectic day-to-day lives.
What are the benefits of Deep Tissue Massage?
How often do you find yourself uncomfortable sitting at your desk at work, suffering from Neck pain? Back pain? Leg pain? Shoulder pain? Your day-to-day posture, especially if you force your body to remain in stiff, uncomfortable positions for long periods of time can bring on what is known as ischemia. This term describes the effects of inadequate blood supply to an organ or part of the body. When we impede blood flow, we also impede the way that part of the body functions and this also applies to our soft tissues such as our muscles, ligaments and fascia. Muscles can become weak or hypertonic and trigger points can develop.
Our Deep Tissue Massage focuses on inducing deep relaxation in problem areas. We believe that through compressing and gently mobilising the soft tissue we can help to reduce muscle spasms and soreness, a feel-good factor and a sense of well-being.
* Positive sensation for clients who prefer a massage with deeper pressure
* Decreased tone within the muscles
* Stretching of muscles and fascia
* Successful treatment of trigger points

Will this Massage be uncomfortable?
The aim of this massage is to induce deep relaxation, you should be aware that you might feel some discomfort during your treatment. However, intense pain results in increased endorphins and momentary tension across the whole body and so we always remind our clients to keep an open line of communication with their therapist. Your therapist will work with you and adjust the treatment according to your preference to ensure you feel comfortable at all times.
