DEEP TISSUE Massage
What is a Deep Tissue Massage?
This type of massage is designed to relieve tension in the muscle and connective tissue also known as fascia. A sustained deep pressure massage technique is applied to the whole body rather than a specific area.
Massage can be carried out in the workplace, home, hotel or care home.
Are deep tissue massages good for you?
They are good for specific problems including persistent muscle pain, muscle tension, to help rehabilitation after an injury, postural pain, fibromyalgia. If unsure whether deep tissue massage will help you just give us a ring and we will be happy to let you know.
Do deep tissue massages work?
When your muscles are tense they develop adhesions which specific points of pain, which are called trigger points. The massage helps to break down these adhesions and then as a result the whole muscle relaxes. This then helps to remove the pain and increase movement.
How often should you get a deep tissue massage?
How often depends on each individual person and their lifestyles. For example someone with a more stressful life, with more pain, recovering from an injury or a life that involves a lot of sport would benefit from more regular massages e.g. at least once a week. Others not suffering from stress, pain or recent injury would be looking at having massages to maintain health, which would be more likely once a month. Your therapist will be able to recommend to you how often they think you should have massages to benefit you.
Do deep tissue massages hurt?
Deep tissue massages are firmer than a therapeutic massage and when the therapist comes across a specific tension point in the muscle there is usually some discomfort. Quite often people enjoy this temporary discomfort as know that it should remove the tension point which will ultimately relieve pain and increase movement in the muscle. Massage therapists do expect you to feedback as different people like different pressures. If the massage is too firm or not firm enough just let your therapist know.

Really excellent service. Gemma, who arranged the appointment was great, and Jacob the physiotherapist excellent. I called and within almost 12 hours I was seen and made better!
Veni was great with my Father. Both of them got on well & my Father feel very comfortable with her. Looking forward to Veni providing further Physio for him!

I'm really happy with the service received from them. I used them twice and both times the therapists were great, professional, friendly and knowledgeable. Plus the convenience of being seen at my own home.

Great service and so much easier them coming to your home. Had physio for my 2yr old after his leg was taken out of plaster and Maria was incredibly knowledgeable and friendly with him.

Jacob was very good and gave lots of helpful exercises and advice. my feet and ankles have definitely improved since his visit so would definitely recomment.
Florence was just fantastic! She helped renew my confidence and was very detailed
I thought your whole service was excellent from booking to receiving treatment. Unfortunately my mother (patient) did not want to continue with treatment at this stage. I thought Abideen was superb and kept me informed in detail of how the treatment went. I have no doubt that if my mother would have given herself a chance with Abideen then she would have been on the road to recovery by now, but I couldn’t force Her. I would definitely recommend your services to a friend.
Excellent service and prompt with materials in hand.

I had an incredible experience with physio. James Bradley - I had nerve damage and though I'm a professional fitness instructor, I could not move past it- within an hour and a half he had me up and moving- really the BEST experience I could have had and so grateful he showed up on time to my home. What a gift.
- Lyndsey Seale
James was thorough, clear in his explanations and about what I should expect from the treatment. He was also able to put me at ease during the session. Overall this has been a very good experience and I would be happy to recommend the service to a friend.
- Helen Welch
I called around to many clinics but they either don't do home visits or were not taking new patients. I was able to find one through PhysioComesToYou and the service was amazing. A high professional organisation.
We were assigned James Bradley (who is a fantastic physiotherapist) to help my father recover his mobility following a stroke. I cannot speak highly enough of his bedside manner and professionalism. I would recommend both PyhsioComesToYou and James

Lockdown had the merit of flushing out those dark alcoves where excuses live to put off exercise but more time at home can leave you prone to over doing it. That was my story with what started as a niggle in my heal developing into a massive inflammation of my achilles and forced hanging up of my running shoes. That's when Physio Comes to you comes in. The lay up was inevitable but what was concerning was the prospect of finding a high quality physio to aid my return to tempo and long runs in the midst of tier 4 lockdown. It was great to hear the reassurance that a quality physio was on hand and the home visit that was promtpty arranged put me well on the road to recovery. It may be a while yet before clocking those sub 7 minute miles but with these guys with me every step of the way I know that when the running shoes are back on I will be in best shape.
Angela was brilliant, very considerate and professional. Most impressed
