Brighton Deep Tissue Massage for Pain Management and Wellbeing

 

Welcome to Holistic Massage Kneads, the website for Lucy Dunleavy, expert therapist for over fourteen years in massage therapy, specialising in clinical deep tissue massage, sports massage and chronic pain management. I am situated in Central Brighton, East Sussex, and work from home in a friendly relaxed environment, with easy on-street parking.

If you have pain from a sports injury, postural imbalance or more general muscle tension from overuse or repetitive movements, massage can really help address this as well as increasing the range of your movements and flexibility, enabling you to reach your best possible performance. I can help you to obtain and maintain optimum movement when used as part of a healthy lifestyle, using cutting-edge advanced massage techniques with powerful lasting results.

I offer a range of remedial bodywork at my Brighton treatment room including:

In particular, I can help with pain and problems associated with:

  • Tight neck muscles from a repetitive forward posture associated with computer work, bicycle riding or driving, and whiplash injuries.
  • TMJ, face and jaw pain, migraines and headaches.
  • Golfers/tennis elbow.
  • Rotator cuff/shoulder muscle pain and frozen shoulders.
  • Lower back, sciatic and hip pain.
  • Sporting aches and pains including tight hamstrings, IT band, shin, knee and foot pain.
  • Repetitive Strain Injuries (RSI) and Carpal Tunnel syndrome.

Deep Tissue Massage

Deep tissue massage uses slower, more forceful strokes to target the deeper layers of the muscle and connective tissue to help with muscle damage from injuries. It is extremely helpful in releasing chronic muscle tension. The focus is on the deepest layers of muscle tissue, tendons and fascia. Read more

Postural Assessment

Posture is the position in which someone holds their body when standing, sitting or lying down. Postural assessments look at your static posture to see if there are any imbalances that could cause or are causing pain and discomfort. Then we work on areas to release tension. Read more

Myofascial Release

Fascia plays a crucial role in the support of our bodies. It surrounds and attaches to everything inside of us and so provides stability within us by creating a constant pull. If our body is represented as a tent, our bones can be thought of as tent poles, which are unable to support anything without the constant pull of the guy ropes (or fascia) to keep the needed tension to allow the tent (or body) to remain upright.

Sports & Remedial Massage

Sports massage is designed to prevent and relieve injuries and conditions that are associated with exercise. It can often be quite strenuous and is meant to relieve and reduce the tension that can build up within the body’s soft tissues while exercising. Read more

TMJ Massage

The Temporo-mandibular Joint connects the lower jaw (mandible) to the temporal bone of the skull, enabling you to open your mouth and move the jaw from side to side. Such positioning and movement is controlled by the muscles attached to the joint. Read more
