Deep Tissue Massage

Deep Tissue MassageDeep Tissue Massage is designed to treat the deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue or fascia and is often recommended to athletes or those who frequently engage in heavy physical activity.

The work is slow, deep and penetrating but not to be mistaken as ‘sustaining deep pressure throughout a full-body session’ as this would cause injury. The therapist may use a great deal of pressure that will not cause pain but may cause momentary discomfort in the relief of deep muscle tension and spasms.

The application of this intensive focused work is located below the surface of the top muscles, reaching the fibrous tissue and therefore works well as a complimentary therapy for Fibromyalgia.

Deep tissue massage employs a set of techniques and strokes to achieve a high measure of pain relief and is more commonly used for problems such as stiff necks, lower back tightness, stiff and sore shoulders.
