Besides our full body massage, neck, shoulder, and back massage, and the other services we offer, our services include a deep tissue massage or DTM. The objective of a deep tissue massage is to find the root of tension spots and release stress on a deeper level. Our mobile massage Swansea therapists are experienced to be able to find hidden stress knots or swollen muscles and release the tension with movements unique to deep tissue massage technique.
What is it?
A deep tissue massage is a special massage and is different from the other services we offer. Unlike the full body massage, the neck, back, and shoulder massage, or the foot massage that we offer, which are all similar in technique and strength but vary in focus, our deep body massage is characterised by slow movements with firm pressure. A deep tissue massage aims to target muscular lesions and stress knots on a deeper level and helps realign muscles and connective tissue. The slow, firm movements of a deep tissue massage also help reduce the symptoms of anxiety and depression.

On the other hand, if you have headaches often, you may enjoy our head massage. One of our best massage Swansea is our deep tissue massage is best suited for those with deep muscular pains, chronic lesions like stiff necks, or long-lasting depression or anxiety. The slow, firm movements reach deeper into your muscles to get to the root of pain or stiffness and release tension.
Stress & Anxiety
Although stress and anxiety are commonly thought as primarily mental health issues, they also have physical repercussions in the body. Stress can manifest itself in various ways, either causing stiff necks and tense shoulders, or tightness in your digestive system or muscular system. Anxiety also has physical repercussions: you may have digestive disorders, limited movement from stiff joints, or physical spasms from built-up anxiety. A deep tissue massage aims to target hidden spots of tense muscles and stress knots to release built-up tension caused by long-lasting stress and anxiety.
The benefits of Swansea massage therapy deep tissue massage are numerous. Although you may walk out of the massage feeling a bit achy, this sensation is completely normal because our massage therapists apply firm pressure on your body which can create a rehabilitation pain afterwards. However, this pressure is necessary to have long-lasting relaxing effects on your muscles. The deep tissue massage helps stimulate blood circulation and can help lower blood pressure. It is also known to help break up embedded scar tissue and rehabilitate chronic muscle pains.
