Deep Tissue Massage
Deep tissue massage focuses on the deepest layers of muscle tissue, tendons and fascia (the protective layer surrounding muscles, bones and joints.
Deep tissue massage produces a large amounts of endorphins (the body’s own painkiller) that gives a natural high whilst releasing chronic muscle tension.
Kinesiology tape is an adhesive elastic cotton strip which is thin and stretchy simulating the same thickness and elasticity of human skin. This makes the tapes perfect for use in a wide variety of musculoskeletal and sports injuries as it can be worn without constricting or restricting movement.
It can also be used for helping to reduce inflammatory conditions.
During Dry Cupping, the cups are placed over several areas to create a vacuum which lifts the soft tissue and creates an upward stretch within the muscle and associated fascia. This vacuum lift helps to increase in blood flow and induces a stretch effect, which results in a reduction in muscle tension and associated pain.
