DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE - CORK CITY
Deep Tissue Massage is a massage technique that focuses on the deeper layers of muscle tissue. It helps loosen muscle tissues, releases toxins from muscles and gets blood and therefore oxygen circulating properly.
Deep tissue massage is often used to treat people who are recovering from accidents, and for sports injuries as it increases blood circulation in muscles that are underused, relieves chronic muscle tension throughout the body, and can also break down scar tissue and "knots" deep in the muscles.
A positive benefit of deep tissue massages is stress relief. The forceful and firm pressure forces the body to relax and ultimately relieve tension. Not only do deep tissue massages help rid the muscles of toxins thanks to the increased blood flow, but flushing out toxins also helps to put the body and the mind in a more relaxed state. This can more easily lead to physical relaxation of stiff muscles.
Our chartered physiotherapist will concentrate on massaging various trigger points on the body that are known to hold the most stress. By working out the muscles in these areas, your body can relax much more easily and much more simply. If you are someone who has a busy work life, who travels a lot, or who just has a lot of stress in your life, a monthly or even bi-monthly deep tissue massage can do wonders for your long-term relaxation and mood.
