Deep Tissue Massage, one of the most requested, is a form of bodywork that aims to relieve tension in the deeper layers of tissue in the body. Deep Tissue Massage can be used in conjunction with other techniques, and is a highly effective method for releasing chronic stress areas due to misalignment, repetitive motions, and past lingering injuries. Slow and methodical strokes are applied to the top layers of affected areas in order to penetrate to deeper muscle layers and achieve lasting relief from chronic pain. Due to the nature of the deep tissue work, open communication during the session is crucial to make sure you don’t get too uncomfortable.
Conditions that require deep tissue massage often derive from work related posture problems, sports injuries, or problems that have developed from ongoing stress and tension resulting in persistent muscle pain that commonly occurs in the neck , lower back, shoulders, arms and legs.
