Eddie specialises in ”deep tissue massage”, also sometimes called ”sports massage”. Deep tissue massage differs from classical massage in that it also concentrates on muscles that are positioned deeper inside our bodies. It is a massage method used to relieve tension in muscles, connective tissue and fascia. Fascia is the sheath of tissue that surrounds muscles, groups of muscles and tendons etc. It binds some structures together while allowing others to glide smoothly over each other. Deep tissue massage focuses on working through the muscles layer by layer, softening and loosening each layer, breaking down adhesions (knots) and scar tissue, releasing trigger points within the muscle and stretching the fascia. It is common for clients to feel a new different type of muscle ache for a day or two after deep tissue massage. This is similar to the way a person’s muscles feel a day or two after a hard workout or training session. The therapist is working out the muscle after all. However, when this soreness lifts the muscle feels lighter and rejuvenated. Clinics are in Tralee , Monday – Saturday, early until late and in Dingle every wednesday.
