Muscle tension is largely developed by your body continually contracting (shortening) the muscles without effective extension (release). Gradually, you lose the ability to let them go (relax). This treatment aims to re-train your muscles back to their full extension, allowing more flexibility in stiff joints and ultimately giving you a better range of movement. For example the result of continually contracting neck and shoulder muscles will be shoulders that creep up towards your ears, losing your neck somewhere in the process! The good news is that you can be fixed and feel like a giraffe again (if you desire).
You will gain lots in one deep tissue and sports massage session alone and sometimes this is enough, however it can take a few sessions to really get muscles back on track. To help clients commit to achieving long term results and maintaining a better range of movement and comfort we offer a discounted 6 course package. During this course of 6 treatments we aim to the root of the problem and, once fixed and armed with a toolkit of exercises to do to maintain what has been achieved, you may not need treatment for months. The regularity of treatments depends purely on what you regularly subject your body to, mentally and physically. The aim is to help you get the best out of your body and increase your range of motion.

DEEP TISSUE //
Sue Glasgow graduated from the London School of Massage with a distinction in Deep Tissue Sports Massage in 2006. She has practised in Sheen for more than 10 years, having started her business in 2007, and previously worked at the Sheen Physiotherapy & Sports Injuries Clinic.
Working with Zubin and the team at Sheen Therapy Centre gave Sue a fantastic opportunity to expand her clinical knowledge, teaching and movement practice. Working with a vast range of clients, her practice is continually evolving, but her priority has always been to deliver the most up-to-date, effective and efficient soft-tissue and massage treatments to give clients better freedom of movement and freedom from pain.
In addition to hands-on treatments, Sue uses the latest in neuromuscular percussive therapy technology – a Theragun. This new device is incredibly effective in improving range of motion, breaking down scar tissue and adhesions, increasing lymphatic flow and reducing lactic acid. Many professional international athletes and teams – including NBA and NFL players, top European footballers and rugby clubs – use Theragun to aid faster recovery.
In early 2018, Sue became a fully certified Foundation Training Instructor, travelling to Brooklyn, NYC, to be trained by the master instructors of Foundation Training. She is currently the only certified instructor in London, and one of just 12 in the UK.
