Deep tissue massage is a specific type of massage therapy that concentrates on realigning the deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue. Our massage therapists use deep finger pressure, and slow, firm strokes to treat a variety of physical ailments.
Deep tissue massages are particularly helpful for chronic aches and pains, and for concentrated problem areas, for example shoulders, necks and backs. We offer soothing deep tissue massages from our studio near Wandsworth.
