Deep Tissue Massage at Yogaspace Yorkshire

Most people will love the benefits of this treatment. Deep tissue massage therapy can be used to treat chronic aches and pains and contracted areas such as a stiff neck and upper back, low back pain, leg muscle tightness, and sore shoulders.

The treatment involves applying firm pressure and slow strokes to the body, the strokes used in deep tissue massage are the same as in classic (Swedish) massage, however the pace is slower with a stronger pressure applied. As well as their hands our practitioners will use their forearms, elbows, fingertips and knuckles to massage tissue.

Our practitioners can usually focus in on a specific problem, or an area with chronic pain or help with injury rehabilitation. Many conditions can be effectively treated including repetitive strain, postural and sciatica problems, sports injuries, and muscle spasms.

Deep tissue massage can be effective in relieving osteoarthritis pain. It can also be used for fibromyalgia pain, improving the range of movement often immediately. Other amazing benefits of deep tissue massage are that it can lower blood pressure, stress hormone levels and the heart rate as well as being very good for the mind.

Inflammation and pain can restrict movement and circulation in muscle tissue and deep tissue massage works to realign the tissue, tendons, ligaments and fascia (which is a protective layer that surrounds bones, joints and muscles) as well as the muscles to release stress, tension and provide pain relief.

At certain points in a deep tissue massage treatment some discomfort may be experienced but that’s to be expected when the massage pressure is deep and often on painful areas. Always tell your massage therapist which areas are painful or if the soreness becomes too much. They can easily reduce the pressure or use some more massage oil to help the muscles relax.

You may experience some stiffness or tenderness after a deep tissue massage, but this shouldn’t last more than a day or two. Drinking water can help with muscle rehydration and to flush away toxins that have been released during your massage.

What do they say about Yogaspace Yorkshire?

The Women’s Group has been an amazing, welcoming, warm experience.
The positive energies and collective female wisdom has been brilliant – the thought provoking sessions followed by the yoga and final gong bath was the perfect balance – thank you Emma – and please can we do it all again!


I came on retreat and stayed at the cottages with my oldest daughter in June 2018 and January 2019.

Emma and Charlie are the perfect hosts they made us feel completely welcome in their beautiful home which sits in beautiful grounds surrounded by spectacular views of Yorkshire.

Yoga at Patrick Brompton Hall is a very special experience.
The beautiful and peaceful yoga studio is the perfect setting for yoga practice.


I have taken part in several Kundalini yoga classes during retreats at Patrick Brompton Hall and have loved all of them.
I was a novice to this particular yoga but the classes catered for all abilities and I was immediately made to feel comfortable.
I couldn’t have asked for a better start to my Kundalini yoga journey and I can’t wait to go back again soon!


To sum it up with one word: love. The best yoga retreat I have been to.
Amazing teacher, wonderful hosts, beautiful facilities, gorgeous surroundings, and delicious food.
