We offer a range of massage therapies at Sutherland House, including Deep Tissue Massage, Remedial Massage, and Seated Acupressure Massage.
Deep Tissue Massage
This massage technique focuses on the deeper layers of muscles. Slower and deeper stokes are used throughout the massage. Forearms and elbows are also used to perform some of the strokes.
Deep Tissue Massage can be effective in releasing muscle tension and can help to break down scar tissue.
Benefits of Deep Tissue Massage may include the softening of hard fibrous muscles and “knots”, improved circulation to skin thereby helping to reduce the build up of cellulite, improved range of motion in the joints.
This massage requires you to remove clothing and massage oil or wax will be used.
Session: 60min or 90min

This massage is beneficial in helping to assist in the rehabilitation of muscular injuries or pain.
It is usual to focus on a particular area that is causing pain or discomfort as opposed to a full body massage. Session can be a bit uncomfortable as we work towards eliminating trigger points that may have formed in the muscles but it should not be painful.
Orthopaedic assessments tests are usually performed to try and establish the muscles involved,

Seated Acupressure Massage
Seated Acupressure Massage, also referred to as On-Site Massage, originated in Silicon Valley in California USA in 1984. The basic premise is related to TCM – Traditional Chinese Massage or ANMA Massage.
During a session the practitioner performs a Kata or sequence in order to work on the Skeletal Muscles of the Arms, Neck, Shoulders, Back & Scalp with the aim of releasing any tension they may be holding.
This is a non-invasive massage that is performed with the client fully clothed whilst sitting in a specially designed chair.
