Deep Tissue Massage is a therapeutic technique focusing on addressing specific deeper tissues and muscle groups of the body. This technique is used to release adhesions and muscular tension in order to restore flexibility, increase your range of motion, and reduce pain.
For your comfort and safety, your therapist will use a range of pressures throughout the session. The intention of Deep Tissue work is to influence adjustment in the tissues without causing undue discomfort or strain. Treatments will involve softening of an area, followed by slow, intense, sustained pressure reaching through the fascia to the deeper layers of muscles tissues.
Practitioners of the Deep Tissue technique apply a deep pressure that is not used in elsewhere, allowing your therapist to reach muscles and tissues that would otherwise be neglected – real improvements to those deeper areas will never be attained without the skilled touch of a trained and caring practitioner.
A 60-minute session is appropriate for the upper body or for a specific treatment area. A 90- or 120-minute session is required to cover the entire body.
