Tension Massage is a deep tissue massage focusing on the back muscles. It is designed for people who suffer from pain, discomfort or headaches. This may result from continuously tensing the back and neck muscles, bad posture, stress or fatigue. It concentrates on stubborn nodules and tension, which may have taken years to build up, and will not necessarily go in one treatment. If it is severe it may be preferable to have a course of massages, but one massage alone may make a significant difference to relieve the discomfort. Unlike the Swedish or Aromatherapy Massage which is used for relaxation a Tension Massage usually focuses on specific problems, such as
• Chronic pain
• Limited mobility
• Recovery from injuries (e.g. whiplash, falls, sports injury)
• Repetitive strain injury, such as carpal tunnel syndrome
• Postural problems
• Osteoarthritis pain
• Fibromyalgia
• Muscle tension or spasm
