For a more concentrated, pressured massage, a deep tissue massage is the ideal solution to realign deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue. The perfect solution for lower back tightness, a stiff neck, or sore shoulders, deep tissue massages are fantastic for chronically tight and tense areas.
While our classic therapeutic massages focus on stress reduction and relaxation, our deep tissue massage typically works to help with a specific problem or trouble area. These focuses may include chronic pain, limited mobility, injury recover, repetitive strain injury, postural issues, osteoarthritis pain, fibromyalgia and muscle tension or spasms.
A deep tissue massage is a rejuvenating concentrated deep pressure massage in which the massage therapist uses techniques designed to penetrate more deeply into the body’s tissues than a traditional therapeutic or hot stone massage. Deep tissue massage works to release knots and stiff, tense muscles by increasing blood and oxygen flow to those tissues. Deep tissues massages also work to restore normal movement and range of motion in the muscles being focused on.
Due to the intensity of these deep tissue massages, clients may feel sore for a day or two after receiving their deep tissue massage – but we assure you, it’s well worth it. Drinking plenty of water will help to relieve this discomfort as your body flushes out toxins.
