The source of these PROBLEMS

When you push your body to the limit during training and competitions, it can reach breaking point resulting in damage that inhibits your progress

When your muscles are exposed to the same movement over a consistent period of time, they’ll become strained resulting in discomfort and pain

Experienced Massage Therapists
It’s one thing understanding which areas in the body need treatment and what type of movement to apply, but it’s another thing altogether having the confidence to apply these techniques. This confidence only comes through practice, something our therapists have years of experience in doing.
free Consultation Time
Do you think it’s fair to pay for an hour of treatment and only receive 45 minutes? Neither do we. For every treatment at Deserved Massage, we make sure that you get the full amount of time that you pay for. We do this by adding extra padding time for undressing / redressing and consultation. That way, you won’t feel any need to watch the clock.
Many sports therapists set up their working environment like doctor’s surgery to give an air of professionalism - which we totally get. However, they forget one crucial detail. Clients will get better results if they are relaxed. As such, we’ve made sure our therapy rooms are booth relaxing and clinically sound.
Easy to get to
The whole point of getting a massage treatment is to release tension, so it makes no sense getting all worked up about travelling to get one. Located in Finnieston, between the City Centre & West End of Glasgow, our studio is extremely easy to get to from all parts of the city.

The difference between deep tissue & Sports massage
DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE
As you may have guessed, deep tissue massage focuses on using firm pressure to manipulate your body’s deeper tissues. It uses a number of Swedish based techniques to loosen and breakdown stubborn knots. Deep tissue massage tends to be applied to larger muscle groups or the whole body rather that specific areas.
Although the techniques used during sports massage do not differ to largely from those used in deep tissue, the key difference is the specificity of where they are applied. As such, even greater care is required to make sure tension is broken down without causing discomfort during the treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions
What Is Trigger Point Therapy?
Trigger Points are basically knotted muscles in your body. They’re caused by all sorts of things from sitting with poor posture to pulling muscles during sports or repetitive strain. These knots are highly restrictive and can be pretty painful.
Trigger point therapy is the art and science of massaging these knots so they become released, allowing you to feel free again.
Is Sports Massage Only For Athletes?
No, the techniques used during your treatment are applicable to anyone who is suffering from acute muscular tension.
Do Techniques Differ Between DT & Sports Massage?
In most cases, the techniques used in deep tissue and sports massage are largely the same. The real difference between these treatments though is that sports massage targets specific muscle points whereas deep tissue focuses on larger areas.
Will The Treatment Hurt?
The truth of it is that those stubborn clumps of muscle need to be broken down for you to feel free again so when we apply pressure to them, it can be a bit sore.
With that in mind, many people actually quite enjoy the sensation as can be quite cathartic.
How Quickly Will I Notice Results?
Right away! Although each type of massage treatment gives different results, we are confident that you will get results right away after your treatment has finished whether that is in the form of relaxation or pain relief!
When Should I Avoid Treatments?
If the following apply to you, then you should avoid booking a massage treatment:
- If you are sick
- If you’re pregnant (pre-12 weeks)
- If you have inflammation
- If you are suffering from nausea
- If you have bruises, wounds, rashes, or severe sunburn in areas you’d like a massage
- If your doctor does not recommend you receive at treatment
How Often Should I Book In?
It’s difficult to say exactly how many you need because every person is different. Some of our clients just need one session every few months, others get a treatment every week.
The best way to understand what you need is by following the expert advice of our therapists. Before and after every session, they’ll give you a clear understanding of where you’re at and help you figure out what you need to do next to achieve results going forward.
