Service Description

Deep Tissue Massage treats muscle soreness and stiffness. It focuses on realigning deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue, that is caused by chronic tension that lies far below the body’s surface. Deep tissue massage breaks up scar tissue and breaks down muscle adhesions, (knots that we feel in our muscles, called muscle adhesions, which are bands of rigid and painful muscle tissue). Deep tissue techniques involve slow strokes, direct pressure or friction movement that go across the muscle grain; more focused strokes using the therapist’s forearm, knuckles, elbows, hands, and fingertips and targeting the painful areas. Due to the nature of this massage, you may feel a bit uncomfortable compared to traditional or Swedish massage. However, it should not be a painful procedure. If the pressure becomes too uncomfortable, never hesitate to communicate your discomfort with your licensed massage therapist, so we can readjust.
