Deep Tissue Massage

 

Deep Tissue massage is designed to address the connective tissue (deeper muscles, tendons and ligaments) below the superficial fascia to release chronic pain and/or tension. Using slower, stronger pressure, a deep tissue massage usually focuses on part of the body rather than the whole, in order to address the client’s chief complaints. Pressure is applied using the hands, fingers, elbows, and forearms using a small amount of oil. Trigger Point Therapy is often employed, meaning that very specific point pressure is used on certain areas of the muscle which are highly contracted and causing pain for the client. Trigger points often refer pain from one muscle to another, making the client think the source of their pain is one place, when it really is in another.

 

Deep tissue massage is used by athletes or individuals whose job require them to do a lot of physical activity or repetitive motions. It can be extremely beneficial and therapeutic for past injuries and as a preventative measure to keep the muscles healthy. After a deep tissue massage it is not uncommon for a client to feel some soreness or even have bruises that may last a couple of days, but after that one should be feeling much more relaxed and better than prior to the treatment.
