 Deep Tissue Massage

What is Deep Tissue Massage?

It is a type of therapy that focuses on realigning deep layers of muscles and connective tissues. This technique is specifically helpful for chronic tense or contracted areas such as stiff necks, lower back tightness, and sore shoulders.

This massage technique utilizes the same strokes as ordinary massage treatments. Deep tissue, however, involves slower stroke patterns that apply deeper pressure on concentrated areas of tension and pain within the muscle fibers.

How Does It Work?

Chronic Muscle Tension or injuries contain adhesion, painful bands of rigid tissue, throughout muscle fibers, tendons, or ligaments. Adhesion bands block circulation within these areas resulting in pain, restricted movement, and inflammation. Therapy utilizing this massage technique relieves all pain and restores normal functionality to affected areas, by means of physically breaking down these bands.

Will Deep Tissue Massage Hurt?

At certain points during the massage, people experience discomfort and/or pain. The massage therapist must be made aware of such occurrences, especially if the pain is outside your comfort range.

Afterwards, there may be stiffness throughout the areas massaged, but these symptoms usually subside within a day or so. The therapist may recommend applying cold (i.e. ice packs, ice) to the area after a session.
