Recover and Prevent Injuries
Deep Tissue, which should not be confused with “deep pressure”, is a type of massage that focuses on the sub-layer muscles to achieve a measure of relief from severe tensions.
It requires extensive knowledge of anatomy and physiology. Deep tissue massage can be quite therapeutic. The massage therapist uses slow, deliberate strokes that focus pressure on layers of tissue that are particularly painful or stiff, relieving chronic patterns of tension and helping with muscle injuries. It is extremely effective in relieving the stress of working at a computer to the neck and shoulder region. It is also used by athletes to help maintain their bodies, decrease the chances of injury and reduce recovery time between workouts. It is normal to feel a bit sore the day after a deep tissue massage.
Deep tissue is an effective way to:
- help with chronic muscular pain and injury rehabilitation
- reduce inflammation-related pain
- balance muscular structures
- remove metabolic waste buildup from tissue
- restore normal range of motion to joints
- increase relaxation
