Deep Tissue Massage
Deep tissue massage is an effective way of treating your muscular aches, pains and stiffness. It focuses on the areas where you need it most. By listening to your needs I can tailor a treatment to suit you.
A treatment can involve techniques that may be quite uncomfortable in the short term but they work alongside your body to improve mobilty and muscular function.

Deep Tissue/Sports Massage
This therapy is designed to reach and realign the deeper layers of muscle tissue and connective fascia, aiming to relieve and release severe tension held on your body. In particular, this massage is used on areas of discomfort and limited mobility, postural problems and chronic tensions such as stiff necks, low back tightness or sore shoulders.
Deep tissue therapy works by physically breaking down the adhesions (bands of painful, rigid tissue) with direct, slow pressure and different techniques, stimulating blood circulation, nourishing the tissue with nutrients and oxygen, and helping toxin and waste products removal from the cells. Benefits include improved range of motion and posture, and stress and pain relief. To achieve the best results, the treatment should concentrate on a single body part, for instance back or legs.
I have been a full-time complementary therapist since 2007; prior to that, I used to be an actress and a trapeze artist in Spain. Due to the physicality of my career, I was soon introduced to the world of the therapies and massages, where I quickly discovered my professional calling. Since then, I have been enriching and improving my work with the purpose of providing an optimal and more tailor-made service to my clients.
In order to provide a personalized treatment, I always like to combine all my skills from different therapies such as Sports, Deep tissue and Pregnancy/Baby massage, Aromatherapy and Holistic massage, On-site and Indian head massage, Reflexology and Lymphatic Drainage, and Reiki and Reconnective healing, all of which I am fully qualified.
I enjoy working with different people, both in my private practice and in businesses, addressing from common conditions caused by different lifestyles, stress and poor work postures to more specific circumstances, such as sports injuries, physical disabilities, pregnancy or fertility issues, for instance.
Anna is fully qualified with an ITEC Diploma in Sports massage since 2008 from the City and Islington College. She also holds different certificates for assisting Deep Tissue advanced courses and volunteering as a therapist in several marathons.
The cost of the treatment is £55 per hour (£30 per a 30 minute session).
“I've found the deep tissue massage to be very effective at loosening up my back and neck. With sitting at a desk during the week, and doing heavy exercise when I'm out of the office, it's great to be able to feel like I can get some balance and give my muscles something back. The day after a massage my back is noticeably looser, and there's the added bonus that I'm generally a lot more relaxed immediately afterward and for the next few days. During the treatment, I feel that Anna put a lot of effort and care into getting it right, checking that I'm comfortable and that the pressure is not too great.”

“I have been seeing Anna Josa for nearly 4 years as a massage therapist and find her the ultimate professional. She works with me to combat the repetitive strain injury I have from hours of violin playing. Treatments are not just soothing massages, Anna works hard to delve into why the body is in pain and, working with me, we find the best way to ease the pain, not only during the session but also in my day to day life. I certainly cannot stop playing the violin but coming for a treatment on a weekly basis has kept the pain in check and is a very enjoyable and relaxing experience.”
