What is deep tissue massage?
Deep tissue massage is like sports massage. It is a method of massaging that focuses on the deeper layers of muscle tissue. This kind of massage that we run from our clinic in Romford, Essex, aims to release the chronic patterns of tension in the body through firm and slow strokes and deep pressure on the tighter areas, either going across or following the fibres of the muscles, tendons and fascia.

Questions & Answers
On what what part of me can I have this treatment?
Pretty much any area of your body. A lot of people use it to ease shoulder pain or neck pain whilst having a back massage, but it can be used on legs, arms and so on.
What is the purpose of this massage?
The purpose is to “unstick” the fibres of a muscle using deep pressure. This allows your muscles to reform correctly, restoring natural balance to your body which helps to remove toxins as your body is operating more effectively again. All this whilst relaxing and soothing your muscles. It is both therapeutic and corrective.
What is the difference between a sports massage and deep tissue?
Both massages work in similar ways in that they work injuries by using deep the pressure to break muscles down so that they can reform in a corrective state. However, a sports massage usually only works in the problem area. A deep tissue massage works everything around the area meaning that muscles either the side that has been pulled out of alignment by your sports injury or even just sports activity will also be corrected. We think this leads to a better end results.
I’d like a full body massage is this possible?
Yes, it is, but if you need a full-body then you need to book a 2-hour appointment. The process of a deep tissue massage means that we have to warm up your muscles before we can work them deeply.
This means that it takes time. 1 hour is suitable for an area such as a back massage which will work on neck pain, shoulder pain and back pain. Depending on how bad you are, you could get your legs included if you have a 1.5-hour appointment.
I’m not sure if this is the right one for me?
That’s OK. You’re not tied into a specific form of massage. We train our therapist in many massage styles and will recommend which types are best for your needs. You can book an hour or more with us and we’ll tailor your program to your needs within your allocated appointment time.
Is there a consultation process?
Yes. If you have access to the internet, we’ll send you a consultation form via email to complete before you come along for your massage sessions. Thus, you will detail any conditions you have such as aches, pains, allergies. This form will remain strictly confidential between you and your therapist. You will need to sign the form to confirm that you are happy to go ahead with the treatment. When you arrive, we’ll chat through your consultation form to understand what you would like to get out of your course of massage and define any areas that will need additional treatment.
Where will I be treated?
We will conduct your massage sessions in a calm, comfortable treatment room with soft lighting.
After your consultation, your therapist will show you to your treatment room where you will undress to your lower underwear whilst the therapist is out of the room.
You will then lie on the bed, cover yourself with some towels & when you call to say you are ready, your therapist re-enter the treatment room.
