DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE
Chronic aches & pains
Support injury management
To improve reduced mobility
A mix of remedial & relaxation
Every treatment starts with a consultation, an important process to help understand your needs and how your body is used on a daily basis, it's also a chance for you to ask any questions and establish your goals of the treatment.
Deep Tissue Massage is a great option for those looking to treat chronic aches and pains, postural tensions and/or support injury management. As well as working remedially I really believe in the power of relaxation, which involves creating a welcoming and cosy environment in which to be treated. As a result my treatments aim for a balance between remedial and relaxation work. Calming the nervous system has a positive affect on muscle and fascial tissue, so the two should go hand in hand.
Using traditional deep tissue techniques, working with soft tissue and fascial release, trigger point therapy and, where I feel it beneficial, cupping massage, I focus on outcome oriented treatments i.e. working towards achievable goals such as improving mobility, reducing muscular tension and pain and decreasing stress levels.
Whether you are looking for a timeout from a stressful period in your life and need to create space for self-care, or whether you have a niggling injury and/or chronic pains that you've been dealing with for years, my Deep Tissue treatments incorporate a range of approaches to help you achieve your goals.
“I've been seeing Amy for TMJ pain on a regular basis, initially weekly to overcome recurring headaches and release my achey jaw! After three sessions I felt a huge improvement and it's made a real positive difference to my life, I no longer wake up with a clenched, clicking jaw and I can focus on my work. Now I see Amy for monthly top-up treatments and I can happily recommend her!”

TMJ dysfunction, sometimes referred to as TMD, is an umbrella term for a range of symptoms relating to problems with the jaw, aka the Temporomandibular Joint.
TMD affects one in four of us, unsurprisingly seeing as the TMJ is one of the most frequently used joints in the body. Massage Therapists are usually the last point of call for TMJ sufferers, after the dentist and/or doctor. But there are so many great massage techniques that can be used to treat TMJ symptoms - and causes - easily and effectively.
As with all treatments we begin with a consultation and - specifically for TMJ - an assessment of the jaw, followed by a postural assessment to understand what possible muscle imbalances could be influencing TMD.
During the treatment I utilise soft tissue massage, trigger point therapy and fascial release to remove restrictions in the tissues and bring functionality back to the body. Treating in this non-invasive way reduces the need for traditional and sometimes extensive dental work, while also significantly reducing pain. Many clients have reported significant progress after three/four successive appointments, many feeling relief after the first session.
