DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE

Deep tissue massage is a type of massage therapy that focuses on realigning deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue. It is especially helpful for chronically tense and contracted areas such as stiff necks, low back tightness and sore shoulders.

When there is chronic muscle tension or injury, there are usually adhesions (bands of painful, rigid tissues) in muscles, tendons and ligaments. Adhesion can block circulation and cause pain, limited movement and inflammation.

Deep tissue massage works by physically breaking down these adhesions to relieve pain and restore normal movement. To do this, direct deep pressure or friction is applied across the grain of the muscles.
