Hopefully not! We will endeavour to work within your comfort zone to ensure that you are able to relax into the pressure that may be required to work on some of your tighter spots. We do not subscribe to the no pain no gain theory, so if you’re looking for a super deep and painful massage, then we might not be the right fit for you.

In terms of the other treatments such as Lymphatic Drainage that is offered at the clinic, then the answer to that question would be resounding no!  MLD uses only a few grams of pressure as the lymphatic system starts just under your skin and this is what we’re working with.  Deep pressure would be counter-intuitive and ineffective.  That is what makes this treatment so wonderful for those with chr0nic pain conditions.

Always let your massage therapist know if it’s too firm. We can’t always tell and there’s no need to suffer in silence.
