Our most popular treatment, deep tissue massage is especially helpful for chronic aches and pains. 

Deep Tissue Massage

Our highly therapeutic deep tissue massage focuses on realigning deeper layers of muscles. This can help with pain management, tight neck and shoulders, back pain, aching leg muscles, sciatica, headaches, improving circulation and much more.

Deep tissue massage at Hemel Massage, combines classic Swedish massage moves with deeper, slower techniques, more concentrated on areas affected by tension and pain. The techniques use strong pressure and motion, reaching the deeper muscles and the connective tissue surrounding the muscles.

This reduces stiffness and tension, especially if caused by stress, postural conditions, over training or injury. Deep tissue massage is also helpful for tight areas such as stiff neck and upper back, low back pain, leg muscle tightness, and sore shoulders.

Deep tissue therapeutic massage is one of the most effective ways to treat and prevent muscle injuries, pain and soreness. 

It is great for:

Deep tissue massage for sports people

Fantastic for sports people to ease off tired aching muscles, deep tissue massage helps with training and injury prevention, muscle realignment and posture imbalances.

Deep tissue therapeutic massage works by physically breaking down adhesions and knots to relieve pain and restore normal movement, keeping you active and able to do the sports you love.


Is deep tissue massage painful?

At certain points during the massage, most people find there is usually some discomfort and pain. However, at Hemel Massage we believe that the muscles should be relaxed to gain maximum benefit from the massage and so it is important to tell the massage therapist when things hurt and if any soreness or pain you experience is outside your comfort range.

There might well be some aching or stiffness after a deep tissue massage, but it should subside within a day or so. 

Our Deep Tissue Therapeutic Massage is £60 for a 1 hour treatment.
