Deep Tissue Massage Therapy
Gets that stabbing, throbbing, piercing pain out of your head, shoulder, hip, and low back
Slow strokes and deep pressure are used to release deeply held tension in the body. Deep tissue massage therapy was created to reach the deep layers of muscles, specifically the individual muscle fibers. Using deep muscle compression and friction along the grain of the muscle, its purpose is to un-stick the fibers of the muscles and release both toxins and deeply held patterns of tension. This massage technique is designed to be more therapeutic than relaxing, although it can be relaxing for some. It is deep pressure but should never be painful. All of our massage therapists are trained in these massage techniques. Deep tissue work can go by many other names, but all essentially mean that the massage goes past the superficial layer of muscle. Most people need at least some deep tissue massage included in their session. If you have pain and soreness, this is the massage you want for your health and wellness schedule!
