As a result of having a deep tissue massage your muscle tension reduces, aches and pains are relieved, your range of motion improves and the strain on your joints is reduced. Your body alignment is improved.
During deep tissue massage I focus on the deeper layers of your muscles and connective tissue. At times this can be very uncomfortable and/ or painful. This is temporary and shortlived – as soon as the muscle releases the pain disapates.
“I give you the answers, guidance and support you
need to eradicate tension and stress, reduce pain,
restore alignment and regain your energy.”
Massage in Central Truro
Deep tissue massage has been proven to benefit the body in many ways. It addresses a variety of issues from physical pain to stress.
Deep tissue (therapeutic) massage relieves tension and pain, decreases stress, AND it increases flexibility, body alignment and your mood.
Deep tissue massage is suitable for athletes, people recovering from injuries, people suffering short or long term pain and stiffness issues and lack of movement and repetitive strain injuries. It is also perfect if you spend long periods sitting.
One of the best massages I have ever had, and I have had a lot! I currently see Dawn every two weeks for pregnancy... massage and she is such a highly skilled practitioner, a wise and compassionate facilitator and amazing support to have during this timeread more

Here’s the headline - AMAZINGAction to take - don’t hesitate - bookTHE DETAILDawn - calm, warm, funny, thoughtful,... intuitive, prepared, strong!, caring, professional, skilledLocation - quirky, creative, labyrinth at the Old Bakery Studios.

Had a great experience during a sports massage! I feel like I came out with more knowledge about my body and also how... to better look after it myself using advice she gave me. I would definitely recommend!read more
Met Dawn yesterday for the first time, as I thought her ethos and method, explained in detail on her website, was... really impressive. Just want to confirm what a number of other reviewers have done already - Dawn clearly has a deep knowledge of her craft and gave me both an assessment of things I am trying to change in my physique and some tools for assisting with that, and a very effective treatment from the muscle pain I was experiencing which motivated my appointment. Really thoroughly recommended.read more

I tend to not tell therapists I did beauty for 12 years as it can make people feel awkward but its also helpful to have... a more indepth view on a review. From my experience with Dawn... she is amazing and makes you comfortable as soon as you are greeted. Her room, her aura and personality to her technique is unique and just a little slice of perfection! She is welcoming, open and friendly while maintaining professionalism. I had the relax and restore massage which included meditation and a foot/head massage, the massage itself was a firm pressure which I prefer, dawn used a beautiful smelling oil that was neither heavy in texture or fragrance, just enough to add to the ambience. Dawn has made an environment where i felt open enough that if I wanted to change the pressure I was able to speak up and not just kind of "go through the motions" I've had numerous massages and separate meditations in my time and the combination was a winner! I highly recommend Dawn, even if you want an introduction to meditation or you're feeling the stress of life/work give Dawn a go. You won't be disappointed!read more

I’ve been to Dawn many times, whenever I’m down in Cornwall, as it is always both rejuvenating and relaxing.
