Therapeutic massage is a treatment massage using many different techniques. It can be a gentle relaxing massage or a tense and deep tissue massage. After muscle and tendon injuries, fractures, operations, injured muscles become tense, knotted and immobile. These techniques employed by our registered massage therapist in Lekki Ajah can assist in speeding up the healing process and prevent complications such as scar tissue formation, decreased joint mobility and assist the patient to return to their normal life. Our therapeutic massage treats not only the injured area but the whole body and addresses the root cause of pain. Therapeutic massage can lower cortisol levels and increase serotonin and dopamine levels. These hormonal changes control pain, improve mood, enhance sleep, decrease stress and anxiety, and promote relaxation.

Deep Tissue Massage by our therapist in Lekki and Ajah
Deep tissue massage techniques are suitable for deeper tissues and body structures such as muscles and fascia. A deep tissue massage is used in sports injuries to promote tissue healing and prevent scar tissue formation as well as releasing muscle tension and trigger points. A deep tissue massage is generally used for larger muscle groups such as neck and upper back or thigh muscles and ITB. Our massage therapists in Lekki and Ajah use deep tissue massages to:
- Release muscle tension in deeper structures
- Release chemicals such as lactic acid from muscles
- Increase blood supply and oxygen to tissues
- Break down scar tissue
- Prevent scar tissue formation
The movements and techniques are generally similar to lighter massage techniques such as Swedish massage applying more intense pressure. There might be some discomfort associated with a deep tissue massage. Many people refer to this discomfort as “good pain”. It is not uncommon to feel mild pain a few days following a deep tissue massage similar to mild soreness after starting an exercise regimen.
Myofascial Release Massage by our therapist in Lekki and Ajah
Myofascial Release is a very effective treatment usually employed by our sports massage therapists and chiropractors for treating recurring conditions. It is a hands-on technique and has been used many decades for treating difficult and chronic back conditions.
Myofascial is a web-like tissue covering large muscles in the neck, back, and hip area. Tight Myofascia causes:
- Muscle pain and spasms
- Chronic back and neck pain
- Breathing difficulties
- Poor posture and reduced flexibility
Myofascial release is an effective treatment to break down scar tissue, realign fascia, increase blood flow and improve flexibility to manage pain and to restore movement and strength.
- Low back pain
- Neck injuries
- Neck muscle tension
- Pain caused by poor posture or arthritis
- Shoulder injuries
The pressure can range from a very gentle touch to deeper pressure. The pressure from Myofascial Release Therapy should never be beyond your tolerance and it is important to give feedback to your practitioner during the treatment.
Prenatal & Postpartum Massage
A pregnancy massage is for an expectant mother and aims to address the specific needs of an expecting mother (Prenatal) or a mother who has recently given birth (Postpartum).
Expecting or new mothers commonly suffer from back pain, swelling of legs, leg cramps, and foot pain. Like a regular massage, pregnancy or postnatal massage is to relax tense muscles, decrease pain, improve blood flow, decrease edema and swelling of legs, and improve flexibility and joint mobility.
Pregnancy massage is specifically tailored to the needs of pregnant women and their changing bodies. Because most pregnant women find it uncomfortable to lie face down, knowledge and care are required to make sure the patient is comfortable. Our massage therapists in Lekki and Ajah are trained in prenatal and postnatal massage and have a good understanding of how to safely position an expecting mother and use appropriate massage techniques.
