Deep Tissue Massage Putney

A medium to deep pressure massage, this treatment aims to alleviate restricted areas of muscular tension. Firm massage strokes encourage tension to be released from the body at a deeper level. a variety of techniques are used to stimulate blood flow, release muscular knots which cannot release on their own and promote healing.An advanced form of massage that uses firm, focused pressure to go beyond the surface layers of muscle.

Deep Tissue Massage is Recommended for the Relief of Deep Muscle Tension:

When there is chronic muscle tension or injury, there are usually adhesions (bands of painful, rigid tissue) in muscles, tendons, and ligaments. Adhesions can block circulation and cause pain, limited movement, and inflammation.

Deep tissue massage or ” structural integration, is a system of deep muscular massage that relieves both muscular and emotional tension which has become stuck in the body tissues. Deep tissue massage can be painful and variations in feeling and experience depends on specific thresholds for pain and discomfort. This can be considerably different in different locations of the body. Some area can be relatively painless, in fact quite pleasurable but at other parts the pain can be excruciating.

Deep tissue massage works by physically breaking down these adhesions to relieve pain and restore normal movement.

Deep tissue massage can break up and eliminate scar tissue from previous injuries. A common problem is that stressed muscles can block nutrients and oxygen from getting to where they need to go, and this will cause inflammation that allows toxins to build up in your muscle tissue. The inflammation and toxins contribute to pain and stress. Deep Tissue Massage breaks up and releases the built-up toxins by loosening the muscles. With the toxins released, blood and oxygen can circulate as they should through one’s body.

I cannot speak highly enough of James. He's working so hard on fixing my running injury and getting me back to where I want to be. He's such a lovely, funny person who absolutely puts you at ease. The receptionists are also great, they remember who you are when you arrive and work efficiently. I would absolutely recommend anyone dealing with sports injury or looking for a recovery training plan go here.

I cannot recommend Physio4Life and Hugo highly enough! After several months of treatment following knee surgery, Hugo's attitude and confidence in my recovery made any slow progress that much easier to deal with. It was always a pleasure to be greeted by such a friendly reception team as well and, to be honest, I'm a little sad I'm back to full health and don't get to catch up with the great team there anymore!!

Twice weekly seshs here since March on an arduous recovery from challenging shoulder surgery. James is a fab and understanding physio, reception team (who always seem very happy & engaged) are superbly organised & highly efficient, quite the best I've experienced in the world of surgeries. Totally recommended.

James rehabilitated my ankle following a complex arthroscopy. His knowledge is really impressive, always knowing or quickly discovering the cause of pains and always ready with solutions. He was recommended by the surgeon and it is easy to see why. Now back long-distance running.

I cannot recommend this place enough! I had to be referred twice (back pain and then a very painful knee injury). Hugo took such good care of me and is such a cracking character that he made everything feel so easy and I was always confident in his approach and his treatment and recovery plan. Above all it was very effective! I have honestly never felt better in my life! Also the staff at reception is the nicest - they even remember people's names! Oh and there's free tea and coffee in reception 🙂 so now I'm pain free and it's all thanks to Hugo! Thank you!

I've had a great experience with Physio4Life. Their physiotherapist Hugo Chinchilla has solved my lower back pain within 5 sessions. An excellent and very friendly professional I'd definitely recommend to anyone.

James has been instrumental in making sure I return to play as soon as possible, being a professional netball athlete my feet are hugely important. James was able to diagnose various issues with my feet, and clearly explain how these could be modified with the orthotics he would mould for me. He went above and beyond to provide the best service possible and I am eternally grateful.

I use physio4life on two counts - James is a brilliant physiotherapist, knowledgeable, skilful (and humorous); and Dan runs an older persons' circuit training exercise class - great fun, and as accessible or challenging as you want to make it
