Massage therapy in Tallinn

Deep tissue and orthopedic massage

The primary goal of deep tissue massage is less about general relaxation and more about reducing pain and stiffness in the body, improving posture and flexibility by releasing chronically tight and shortened muscles and fascia. This is accomplished by applying a combination of slow compressive and lenghtening strokes to the involved musculature.

Additionally to hands, therapist may use fingertips, knuckles, forearms and elbows during the deep tissue work. Some of the same strokes are used as in classical (Swedish) massage, but the movement is slower and the pressure is deeper and concentrated on areas of tension and pain. So it works also with the deeper muscles. Because of that people usually feel deep tissue massage much more beneficial.

Deep tissue massage is designed to relieve severe tension and stiffness in the muscles and the connective tissue. It is particularly recommended for individuals who experience chronic pain, limited mobility, postural problems, are involved in heavy physical activity and clients who have sports injuries or any other kind of sustained physical injuries.

When there is chronic hypertonicity or injury, there are usually adhesions (rigid, fibrotic tissue) within or between muscles and other soft tissue structures. Adhesions can cause decreased muscle function, limited movement and pain. Deep tissue techniques works by mechanically softening up and breaking down these adhesions to relieve pain, improve muscle function and restore normal movement. To do this, the therapist may also use direct deep pressure or friction applied across the fibers of the muscles, tendons or ligaments. Clients can notice improved range of motion immediately after therapy session.

For better benefits, I also use trigger point therapy and various techniques for stretching tight muscles and activating weak muscles. It is important for better muscle balance and stability of joints.

Additional tips for treatment

In the beginning of the session I ask some questions from you and do some assessment procedures for getting information about your condition.

At certain points during the massage, you may feel some discomfort or pain. It is important to communicate what you are feeling.

If necessary, I also teach to you some therapeutic exercises, how you can improve condition of muscles by yourself.

It is useful to drink plenty of water after the session to flush metabolic waste from the tissues. 


My name is Kuldar Viikma. I have worked as massage practitioner since 1997 when I attended my first training in classical and sports massage. After that I have graduated Tallinn Health Care College in nurse speciality, completed one year training in Estonian Massage and Therapy Shcool (2003), and also a course of physiotherapy in open university of University of Tartu (2004).

Client testimonials

I had the privilege to enjoy Kuldar's treatments for about two years. After various hip operations walking became painful for me. With Kuldar's help I improved my walking ability considerably and was relieved of my pain. He has the ability to adjust perfectly to the individual treatments needed and combines his massages with the necessary gymnastics. He has a wide range of massage techniques and improves them constantly by studying. I specially want to emphasize his sincere interest in his patients' well-being. He also explains all his treatments in detail. He is the best masseur I experienced and therefore I fully recommend his services.

Ruth, Germany 

I am engaged in dances and gymnastics since 5th years. Already for a long time I have had back pains. Doctor diagnosed scoliosis when I was quite young, but I continued to dance. Now I study choreography in Tallinn University and my back is exposed to the big loadings. I started having terrible pains in my lower back and between shoulder blades. Kuldar has spent with me some therapeutic sessions which included both massage, and exercises which have helped to strengthen the necessary muscles. I am very happy with result since pains have gone and my back have gotten stronger. Kuldar has his own technique and he knows, what is he doing. Now I can dance again. And in case I need help, I know what to do and to whom to have recourse.
