DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE focuses purely on your muscles and connective tissue. Your practitioner uses a variety of techniques using their hands to restore and invigorate your muscles. As well as this, your treatment will relieve pain, improve your blood pressure and provide stress relief. We pride ourselves on our therapists all possessing a great touch.
SPORTS MASSAGE massage differs from other massage techniques as it’s delivered with injury or performance enhancement in mind. If you’re physically active, you may notice tightness in muscles or ligaments after a sports or workout session and there may be a build up of lactic acid in your muscles. Sports massage can help. At Hands On we use Trigger Point Work an integral part of our sports massage - if you've never had it done properly and you love the sensations of great massage, you're in for a treat. A typical trigger point (hard nodule or 'knot' in the muscle or fascia), might be in the upper trapezius causing jaw or headache-type pain, or in the scapula causing upper back issues.
