Deep Tissue Massage In Norwich

Deep Tissue Massage

Deep Tissue Massage helps ease chronic aches and pain. Focusing on specific problems such as a stiff neck, upper or lower back pain, leg tightness and sore tense shoulders. Easing contracted areas of muscular tissue, improving mobility, reducing repetitive strain injuries, postural problems and osteoarthritis pain. It can be very effective on sciatica,  as well as piriformis syndrome and tennis elbow.

It realigns deep layers of muscle and connective tissue using slow deep concentrated pressure on areas of chronic tension or injury. The techniques and strokes are applied using thumbs, knuckles, forearms and elbows, helping physically break down adhesions (rigid tissue that can block circulation, limit movement and cause inflammation) in muscles, tendons, and ligaments. This helps to relieve pain and restore normal movement. 

Cross-Fiber Friction - is used on tight rigid muscles and lesions. The amount of pressure may not be comfortable necessarily but it's very useful for the relaxation of tight muscles and lesions being treated.

Muscle Energy Technique (MET) - a type of stretching, especially useful in stretching postural muscles, which are prone to shortening. The client actively participates in the treatment session by resisting the movement done by the Therapist.

Trigger Point Therapy - intended to ease the source of the pain by applying pressure in the painful and sensitive areas of the body. The advantage of trigger point massage is discharging tightened ranges in the muscles consequently lightening pain.

Myofascial Release - a type of therapy that aims to treat myofascial pain by relaxing the contracted muscles. The technique is performed directly on the skin without using oils or lotion, this makes the therapist detect fascial limitation and apply the right amount of pressure to do the release of the fascia.

George Bavin BA (Hons), CPE, LPC, ITEC

Following a legal career, George instigated some fundamental changes in his life and began to work in the Health and Social Care sector with people who had suffered a traumatic spinal injury. He also worked alongside clients struggling with progressive degenerative conditions and with others at the very end of their lives.

During this time George became aware of massage as a form of therapy. He was impressed with its healing value and in particular, the positive impact it has on physical health and mental well-being.

He also found that people responded well to him as a Carer, his calm and personable demeanor relaxed and comforted his clients.

In June 2015, George went on to obtain the ITEC Level 4 Sports Massage qualification. Since then he has been steadily building a reputation for consistently delivering high quality massage focused on meeting the needs of his clients. He enjoys event work, particularly if the weather is good, and embraces opportunities for professional development.

George works to maintain a high level of physical fitness and is committed to the study of Tai Chi.

This Chinese martial art focuses on self-awareness through movement, like a form of active meditation. Awareness of his body’s positioning has helped George improve his posture and resolve his own back pain, thus promoting his longevity as a Massage Therapist.

For George, Massage Therapy is key to achieving his ambition: to facilitate anybody, athlete or otherwise, achieve their optimum. He can help you to prevent injuries and promote recovery: to enhance your performance, promote your self- confidence, and provide you with some guilt free head space in which to unwind.
