Our recommendation

A perfect choice for those that prefer a more intense treatment. It works deeply into the muscles and connective tissues to release chronic aches and pains. This massage technique is especially beneficial for areas of tension and tightness, such as stiff necks, lower back tightness and sore shoulders. It’s not just physically relieving but also helps to reduce stress, making it a great choice for overall physical and mental relaxation.” – our Lead Therapist

What to expect during a deep tissue massage

After being greeted by your therapist, a short consultation will be held to identify any specific areas you would like to focus on so your therapist can best address your needs. 

Expect targeted, firm pressure focusing on areas of tension. You may experience some discomfort during the massage due to the focused pressure on tense areas. Communicate with your therapist during the treatment about pressure or any discomfort you are feeling. After the session, you may experience soreness but that typically eases within a couple of days.

FAQs about deep tissue massage

All clinics offer deep tissue massage.

Drink plenty of water and complete your online health profile (if not already complete).

Post-massage, you may feel some mild soreness or tenderness, but this usually subsides within a day or two and is part of the healing process. We recommend drinking plenty of water to stay hydrated as it helps aid recovery and flushes any toxins out of your system that have been released through the massage.

While suitable for most people, individuals with certain health conditions, muscle rupture or a recent injury (in the past 72 hours) should consult their healthcare provider before getting a deep tissue massage. Ensure you have completed your online health profile so your therapist has the full picture of your health.

You will experience immediate relief from tension, but noticeable improvements in pain or mobility may take a few sessions, depending on individual circumstances and conditions. It is recommended to start with monthly sessions and then adjust accordingly based on your progress and goals.

I had a deep tissue massage with Sisi, during the consultation she identified some key problem areas and focused on them during the session which means I left with less pain and increased mobility in those areas. After the massage she also gave me some great tips on maintaining the issue. In my experience Target Therapies take the time to identify what will work best for you and I have always left feeling great. I would highly recommend.

I had a deep tissue massage and hot stone therapy with Lica today and can honestly say it was the best massage I’ve ever had. I’ve been suffering for a while with an extremely tight back and shoulders and Lica really knew exactly where to massage and what pressure to use. I’d definitely recommend Lica she really knows her stuff. Can’t wait til my next session. Thank you. 😊
