When it comes to hands on skills Chartered Physiotherapist are highly trained in the area. We are trained in the specific manual techniques which will work deeper into the tight tissue thus giving the best results.
Deep tissue massage focuses on getting into the deeper layers of Muscle,Fascia and Connective tissue. Often these structure can be tight and inhibited causing either pain or restriction in joint.
Massage is very effective in releasing inhibited muscles, preventing injuries, and helping the body to recover from tough training or competitions. It is also very effective in helping with chronic problems, such as back and neck pain.
