Deep Tissue Massage
Deep tissue massage involves working on ‘deeper’ muscles than a basic therapeutic massage. The therapist uses extra pressure to work through more superficial layers and reach deeper structures.
Receiving a deep tissue massage helps relieve muscle tension and stiffness, leaving you feeling de-stressed and more mobile. A deep tissue massage can cover the whole body, or focus on more problematic areas.
What should I expect during my treatment?
Your appointment time includes a consultation with your therapist where they will discuss your health and the proposed treatment. They may also spend some time on examination.
Your appointment also includes time for dressing and undressing so we recommend wearing loose, comfortable clothing and shoes which are easy to remove. After your treatment, your therapist will provide some aftercare advice.

I have been visiting Ashlins for the past 18 years and the massage I received from Ester was one of the best, amazing. She targeted all the areas where I felt pain and within the same massage made me feel so relaxed!
Thank you so much Sylwia! This was actually the best massage I've ever ever had. I feel so much better. My whole body was full of tension and soreness, and Sylwia methodically sorted out all of my worst spots.
I developed neck, shoulder and back pain from my exercise workout. I could not move my neck to look around for almost three days. I had a deep tissue appointment with Achara, the massage was amazing best I ever had. She loosened up my muscle and it was a completely relaxing treatment. I now have much better movement of my neck, my shoulder and back feel great. Will be send my friends and family here. Thanks so much.
I had a deep tissue massage/reflexology session from Susan only recently and loved it. It was the first time I had treated myself to a massage, so i was quite shy.
I recommend going to Ashlins as they make you feel comfortable and are 100% professional.
