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 couldn't be happier with Alex and how he treated my upper and lower back long-term issues. After the first session, my joints felt more supple, my muscles relaxed, and my pain decreased. As a bonus, my athletic performance improved dramatically. After a couple more sessions, my pain was completely gone. I have been seeing him for 8 months now, and I am already looking forward to our next session. Highly recommended!
Best massage to date by Vera. Pleasant calm and pays attention to details. Highly recommend. I will certainly be returning for future massages.
Alex is an excellent therapist who has helped with my pain tremendously. I am more supple and happier. I would highly recommend Alex
I had been very unwell with a lot of body pain for some time. I had a two hour long session with Alex, and I had never felt more lighter and energetic. Alex was a very mindful and thoughtful massage therapist and I am definitely going back to him.
Had an excellent treatment provided by Tatina (19 May 2023). She made accommodations for a injury I have and was really attentive to making sure everything was OK and comfortable. Very clearly a seasoned professional, she delivered a deeply relaxing massage in a calm and soothing atmosphere. Highly recommend.
I had recently massage from Rina. It was absolutely amazing massage which helped my tensed back and shoulder area. Rina is professional and friendly. I highly recommend her.
During the Christmas holidays the right hand side of my chest started to hurt really badly, I've been to the GP and he told me the reason might be because of coughing since it's the cold season, but I never had the cough so I assumed he didn't know what to say at this point. I went home upset, in pain and hopeless.
I saw Alex once last week, and after the consultation he explained me how the pain in an area could be originating from a different area. The treatment was great but the pain was still there to a certain extent, until it started to decrease and completely faded after 3 days.
After more than a week my pain hasn't come back, and I feel great
This morning I woke up and my forearm pain as well as my neck tension were gone, not to mention that I slept like a baby last night!
This was my second acupuncture with Odette, and I think she knows exactly what she's doing!
I strongly recommend her whether you had acupuncture before or as a first time experience. Now I think I should rest and allow the treatment to fully work.
Nadia has been great! I have been seeing her for a few months now and I would highly recommend. My treatment has been a combination of Osteopathy and Acupuncture. This varied approach is what originally drew me to booking an appointment as Nadia is able to combine her expertise in different techniques to come up with the right treatment plan for you.
I received an Extensive amount of massages from 2001, in the winter of 2002 I was informed that i had very poor blood circulation. After a confrontation with Hackney council management I was off work for 6 months. In December 2002 I was backed by Hackney council occupational heath Doctor he told me thanks to Ashlins natural health my legs will not have to be amputated by the time I'm 60. My issue was caused by excessive vibrations of the strimmer machine at work. Thanks to Ashlins they have saved my legs from permanent damage, been coming here for almost 20 years.
I booked a Deep tissue massage with a headache combination to help reduce the tension in my neck and shoulders, and generally to relieve some muscle soreness.
The diagnostic questions were really thorough and the massage was absolutely great! Perfect alternation from deep pressure to gentle, it felt amazing on the neck where most of my tension is located.
I would happily see Alex again in the future.
Rina is outstanding!
I don't know what she did with that candle but it was out of this world!
My face feels rejuvenated!
I have been having treatments with Sylwia Lekan for a few weeks now and the improvement to my body concerns are incredible. Each session takes me out of pain and improves the movement to my body. Sylwia massages are the best I've ever experienced. She seems to intuitively know the areas that require work. Sylwia is professional and friendly and really listens to your needs. I am so happy to have found her and will be a long term client for life. Highly recommended. My life is becoming pain free.
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.
