What is the intensive release for muscle pain?
We can manipulate muscles through our clothes. This requires your massage therapist to use different techniques to those they would if you were having a traditional massage such as deep tissue or Swedish and instead use body movement to release muscles that have become stuck together through injury or lack of movement. It’s great if you are suffering from stiff joints.
Think about this as a kind of assisted yoga. You’re moving around, but only with the help of an expert in bodywork who can move you according to what is required by your tight muscles to release their tension.

Questions & Answers
What does muscle pain feel like?
Muscle pain is when the pain is felt in the muscles. So, rather than the joints when you’ll more than likely feel bone grinding against bone, muscle pain is a tight feeling. Sometimes it can lead to shooting down your legs or arms because tight muscles trap the other parts of your body, such as nerves, within them when they are knotted.
I have back and muscle pain alone, can you help?
Sure. If your issue is muscle pain then a massage from a qualified massage therapist who really knows their stuff is a great help in relieving your pain. Tight muscles are one of those things where everyone’s symptoms may be different, but it’s from a similar cause. This is because our bodies are all constructed slightly differently.
How do you identify and treat muscle pain?
Before you come along to your appointment, you’ll need to return a consultation form to us in enough time that we can read this beforehand. Then at your session we’ll discuss any lifestyle factors that we think may be relevant in more depth.
We’ll use this as a guide to start us off in the right area. But then after that it comes down to your therapist being experienced and knowing how to track down what they feel to find the route cause. It’s not something we can explain, it’s a combination of experience, knowledge, training and feel.
When should I see my doctor about muscle pain?
*pain that doesn’t go away after a few days, particularly if you’ve been stretching
*where there is no clear cause
*if you also get a rash
*if you’ve also had a tick bite
*myalgia accompanied by redness or swelling
*pain that occurs soon after a medication change
* if your temperature is also elevated
I have pain and stiffness, is this the right massage for me?
Yes. Essential Feeling specialise in whatever your body needs. So, if you have pain from tight muscles, we’ll stretch these muscle aches out using whatever combination of techniques is required. For instance, we may stretch you first and then go in with deep tissue massage techniques. What’s important to understand is that just because you have back muscle pain, it doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s the same area that is the cause of the pain.
Can joint pain be relieved when you treat muscle tightness?
Yes. Sometimes. It depends, as with all these things what the cause of the pain in your joints is. But, if it’s linked to tight muscles which are pulling on your joints and causing pain that way, then a massage with your experienced and qualified massage therapists at Essential Feeling may help.
