Gladiator Deep Tissue Massage

Gladiator deep massage has Greco Roman Olympic origins, this therapy is performed on the floor level.

A firmer pressure is used through a cloth and oil to give more specific attention to muscle knots and trigger points.

Some stretch may be incorporated in the massage to reach the deeper level of the body and help the fascia release.

Then the therapist uses a combination of long gliding strokes, kneading, friction and vibration and regularly checks to ensure that the pressure is firm enough. As trigger points are located, direct pressure is applied to release the knots.

If you have specific muscles or trigger points that need individual attention, a Gladiator deep massage can help.

The massage has several therapeutic effects and can be used to treat many different conditions.

This type of massage is ideal for the treatment of major muscle groups like the neck or lower back. It can also be used to relieve strain and treat injuries in your joints and tendons.

Different techniques are used to break up scar tissue and physically break down muscle "knots" or adhesions (bands of painful, rigid tissue) that can disrupt circulation and cause pain.
