Our lead physiotherapist is trained by Art Riggs in the art of deep tissue massage. Deep tissue massage works locally around areas of chronic pain and areas contributing to chronic pain.
Massage work is performed at a level in the tissues (whether it be muscle, tendon or ligament) where tension is experienced either due to injury or prolonged poor posture. The strokes performed in deep tissue massage serve to remove adhesions and re-align muscle fibres. Deep tissue massage includes working on the body’s continuous web of fascia by myofascial release techniques.
