Deep Tissue Massage
Deep Tissue massage addresses the deeper layer of tissue. It aims to release chronic patterns of tension in the body through deep slow strokes and finger pressure of the tense areas, either following or going across the fibers of the muscles, tendons, and myofascial lines.
It is often chosen by athletes and those with high physical performance demands from their bodies. Deep tissue massage addresses issues like soreness from high-impact intense workouts, tightness from mental-physical stress as well as increased blood flow to the tissue, thus promoting muscle growth, relaxation, and homeostasis
Deep tissue massage is a type of therapeutic massage that focuses on the deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue in the body. It uses slow, firm pressure and targeted techniques to release tension and knots in the muscles, as well as break up scar tissue and adhesions. Deep tissue massage can be helpful for individuals who suffer from chronic pain, muscle tightness, and limited mobility, as it can help increase blood flow, reduce inflammation, and improve overall function. The massage therapist may use their hands, forearms, elbows, and even specialized tools to apply pressure and work on specific areas of the body.
