Based on traditional, popular massage techniques, this is an ideal first treatment for people who are looking for a healthy and indulgent pick-me-up. Using long strokes and deep circular movements, your therapist will help you unwind and de-stress, while boosting your immune system.


Massage has come to be associated with a broad range of health benefits, from improved pain management to enhanced circulation, and even treatment of conditions like arthritis. Even if you don’t have specific concerns, some studies prove massage can positively influence your general health from the very first session.

Who would benefit from a Swedish Massage?

Anyone from athletes to office workers will feel the benefits of this treatment, which releases muscular tension and decreases inflammation.

People who may choose to select this treatment:

  • New to massage.

  • Primarily focused on relaxation, but prefer something more energising than a relaxing massage.

  • Prefer lighter pressure.

  • Want to feel calm and composed.

People who should not choose an Swedish Massage:

  • Looking for deep pressure. Try a deep tissue massage instead.

  • Those with general massage contraindications, including active cancer, acute infection, cellulitis, thrombosis and acute allergies.

  • Pregnant women. Try a pregnancy massage instead.

 Swedish Massage potential benefits:

  • Warms and stretches superficial tissue.

  • Increases blood flow throughout the body.

  • Promotes a sense of wellness and relaxation.

  • Decreases cortisol levels in the body, reducing stress.


What is a Deep Tissue Massage?

Deep tissue massage instigates a greater tension relieving response than a classic massage by concentrating on posterior (deeper) muscles. It uses a mix of classic massage strokes, with increased pressure, typically following the muscle from insertion to origin. The aim is to reduce muscle tension by releasing knots and restoring elasticity. Deep tissue massage is also designed to increase blood flow to targeted muscles, kick-starting the body’s natural healing process.

What are trigger points

Trigger points are highly irritable and localised areas within muscle fibres. These areas can vary from the size of a pea, to a large lump. They are often tender and painful to touch and will frequently cause referred pain and discomfort. Trigger points are tender points in the muscle fascia; these can be difficult to locate. The rationale behind using trigger points therapy is that it creates localised ischemia (lack or reduction of oxygen to the muscle tissue) which starve the trigger point of oxygen and nutrients needed to sustain contraction.

Who would benefit?

Deep tissue massage is one the most popular choices of massage as it can suit many individuals, helping to ease pain and stiffness in a variety of scenarios. It is not just for athletes or people with acute injuries.

People may choose to select this treatment who are:

  • Experiencing tension in specific areas of the body - most commonly in the back and neck.

  • Suffering from chronic pain.

  • Stressed and looking for deep relaxation.

  • Recovering from a soft tissue injury.

  • 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


Individuals should not have a Deep Tissue Massage if they have:

  • Issues lying on their front

  • Open wounds or cuts - these areas should be avoided

  • High blood pressure - check with your GP before booking a deep tissue treatment

  • Had recent surgery

  • Fever, flu or cold symptoms - these can be amplified after a massage

  • Pregnancy. Try a pregnancy massage instead.​

Deep Tissue Massage potential benefits:

  • Reduces tissue congestion

  • Deeper relaxation than a classic massage by removing muscle inflexibility

  • Reduces stress caused by tension

  • Chronic pain relief


It is important to note that these benefits can sometimes only be achieved after a few sessions. If the recipient is very tense, most of the first treatment will concentrate on warming up the superficial muscles. A following session will then target the posterior (deep) muscles to encourage blood flow.


During your advanced deep tissue treatment

We will focus on areas of your body where you can feel tension and pain. This will be communicated at the beginning and during the treatment, adjusting technique according to the specific benefits you wish to achieve. Your muscles will need to be relaxed and you may be asked to breathe deeply to enable your therapist to reach the deeper musculature.

Advanced Deep Tissue Massage techniques

A advanced deep tissue treatment works on individual problem areas. During a treatment, the therapist will shift their body weight to apply a range of pressure. The more pressure, the deeper the massage, promoting increased blood flow and relaxation. This is achieved using their fingers and thumbs, as with a classic massage, in addition to other extremities including knuckles and elbows.

After your Deep Tissue Massage

It is not unusual to feel some pain and stiffness after your treatment, but this should go away after a day or two, leaving you feeling less tense. Massage, especially deep tissue, has the same effects on the body as exercise in terms of increasing blood flow and stretching. Having a deep tissue massage can feel just like having a workout.

What is the difference between a Swedish and Deep Tissue Massage?

A deep tissue massage uses a combination of classic massage strokes that are slower and deeper to that of a Swedish massage.

Does a Deep Tissue Massage hurt?

You may experience some discomfort during your treatment. Let your therapist know if you feel pain and you want them to reduce the pressure. It is important to communicate to your therapist about specific areas of tension and intensities of pressure. The same pressure doesn't apply to every area and each person has different tolerance levels. Talk about positioning before and during the treatment so your therapist can work around what is most comfortable.

What type of therapists specialise in Advanced Deep Tissue Massage?

Sports or physiotherapists often use advanced deep tissue massage to remove tension from muscles before working on them. Others, such as those who have come from a classic massage background, choose to train in deep tissue massage to expand their anatomy knowledge.

This page describes the most common techniques for a specific type of massage. Naomi your therapist will tailor your treatment to your individual needs based on her expert knowledge and experience.


What is a Pregnancy Massage?

Prenatal massage has been practiced for thousands of years, to support mothers physically, mentally and spiritually through the challenges of childbirth. This type of massage will relieve aches and pains, reduce stress and decrease swelling in expectant and new mothers. This massage is not available for women in their first trimester.

People who may choose to select this treatment:

  • Pregnant women in the 2nd and 3rd trimester.

  • New mothers.

  • Experiencing aches and swelling.

  • Want to feel calm and supported.

Unfortunately, if you are in your first three months of pregnancy you will not be able to book a massage through Pure Rejuvenation. If you are more than thirteen weeks pregnant (2nd trimester), you should still seek advice from a healthcare professional before starting treatment.

  • Still in the 1st trimester

  • Have a history of miscarriage or high-risk pregnancy.

Treatment during your Pregnancy Massage

Your therapist Naomi will bring bolsters to support you. She will use long, slow strokes and kneading movements in tense areas, with special attention paid to the head, neck and face for a full body experience.

What is the difference between a Pregnancy and a Swedish Massage?

Like the Classic massage, the Pregnancy massage uses Swedish massage techniques, but may position you differently to ensure you remain comfortable and able to relax.

After your Pregnancy Massage

Booking regular massages throughout and following your pregnancy will help to ease your body as it adjusts and recovers.
