What is Deep Tissue Massage?

It is effective on sore muscles, aches and pains, bringing more blood and oxygen to the tissue, which helps speed healing and relieves tightness and dysfunction.

 

Deep Tissue Massage doesn’t necessary mean “hard” as with the proper technique muscles deep in the body can be reached with a minimum of pressure. It is based on Swedish massage.

Deep Tissue Massage is designed to increase blood flow and break down scar tissue to release tension blockages and knots. It is used for chronic aches and pains and contracted areas such as a stiff neck and upper back, lower back pain, leg muscle tightness and sore shoulders. Improve flexibility of joints and muscles by using slow strokes, direct pressure or friction usually across the grain of the muscles (cross fiber) using the fingers, thumbs or elbows.
