Deep tissue massage is a type of massage therapy that focuses on realigning deeper layers of muscles. It is used for chronic aches and pain and contracted areas such as a stiff neck and upper back, low back pain, leg muscle tightness, and sore shoulders.
This massage is similar to Swedish massage, focusing instead in using more pressure to help assist in the release of soft tissue, such as muscles, tendons, and fascia that lace around your bones and joints.
Proven highly effective in the treatment of acute and chronic muscular aches and pains, tension-related headaches, helps increase blood flow, reduces blood pressure, and assists with lymphatic drainage.
Deep-tissue massage is always adjusted to the client’s pain threshold, but is normally accompanied by some low-levels of muscular discomfort or described by many as feeling the good pain.
Our massage therapists may use fingertips, knuckles, hands, elbows, and forearms during this massage. The pressure is generally stronger than a regular massage and the strokes may be slower.
