Tie deep tissue massage in with iPRF or PRP injections

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections are a minimally invasive procedure that involves injecting a concentrated solution of platelets into the injured muscle. Platelets are blood cells that contain growth factors, which are proteins that promote healing. When injected into the muscle, the growth factors help to stimulate the repair of damaged tissue and reduce inflammation.

Deep tissue massage is a type of massage that uses deep pressure to release muscle tension and improve circulation. This can help to reduce pain and swelling, and improve range of motion.

There is some scientific evidence to suggest that PRP injections and deep tissue massage can work together to help muscles recover from injury. A study published in the journal The American Journal of Sports Medicine found that PRP injections combined with deep tissue massage were more effective than deep tissue massage alone in reducing pain and improving function in patients with chronic hamstring injuries.

Another study, published in the journal Knee Surgery, Sports Traumatology, Arthroscopy, found that PRP injections combined with physical therapy were more effective than physical therapy alone in reducing pain and improving function in patients with chronic knee osteoarthritis.

These studies suggest that PRP injections and deep tissue massage can be a safe and effective way to help muscles recover from injury. We provide PRP or iPRF injections at a massively discounted price if you book and have these at the same time as your massage.

Here are some additional benefits of PRP injections:
  • Reduces pain and inflammation
  • Improves range of motion
  • Speeds up the healing process
  • May help to prevent re-injury

Is this a sports massage then?

People use sports massage interchangeably with deep tissue treatments. There are fundamental differences in that sports technique is about helping the specific injury during your session, rather than your entire body. Deep tissue massage looks after the injury and tracks it to the source. The benefits of this is to reduce the chance of your problem reoccuring.

It’s important not to get hung up on the terms because our professional therapist will always mix and match techniques so you have the best potential outcome.

What to expect when you have a deep tissue massage

Our massage therapist is not only highly qualified and experienced but also committed to your treatment. We’re constantly researching and keeping up to date with new techniques so we can ensure you always have the best care.

Deep tissue massage near me works across fibresWe’ll begin your treatment with a lighter pressure, similar to the technique we use for Swedish massage. This soothes the upper layers of muscles, tendons and fascia for soft tissue release and warms up your muscles and connective tissues.

We do this to prevent injury during your session. It’s not good to work too hard before your muscles are supple because this puts more duress than your muscles can take.


Imagine a tree bending in the wind. If it’s not supple, like bamboo, it risks the branches breaking.

As you and your muscles loosen, we’ll increase the intensity of our pressure. We’ll use our forearms and elbows, knuckles and thumbs to apply deep, targeted pressure. Your therapist will work along the length of your muscles and over their grain.

This mix of techniques attacks ‘knots’ and break down these bands of painful tissue which over time grows so rigid you can feel it through your skin.

By working in this way, after your deep tissue massage, you’ll relax, your muscles will be more free and so you’ll be able to move more freely.

And what’s often appealing to people is that it also doesn’t hurt as much then. Your muscles don’t put up the same resistance.
