As the name suggests, this therapy is deep. It’s meant to release chronic muscle tension by using slow, deep, direct-on-muscle techniques. Deep Tissue Massage locates ingrained areas of discomfort, “knots”, and slowly opens them by bringing blood flow back to the area. This allows for greater range of motion, pain-free movement, and significant stress reduction.
Slow deep breathing is encouraged throughout a variety of techniques such as muscle stripping, trigger point, and myofascial release.
Your muscles may feel it the next day, in some cases residual soreness may last a few days. It is akin to how your body can feel after a work-out at the gym: Muscles are being used and stretched in a way they’re not used to. But that little bit of pain can provide quite a bit of gain.
Deep Tissue Massage can provide some of the longest lasting overall benefits, and great relief to specific tight areas and sources of lifelong pain. With the release of stress and tension comes a sense of ease, well being, and chillaxation.
