What is Deep Tissue Massage?
Commonly used to treat chronic aches and pains, injuries, and muscle tension, deep tissue massage focuses on realigning deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue. Unlike Swedish massage, which uses long, flowing strokes to help the body relax, deep tissue massage uses more intense pressure with slow, focused movements to target the deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue. Our master masseuse accesses a deeper level of pressure in order to relieve pain and tension.
Deep Tissue Massage Techniques & Benefits
Deep Tissue massage applies pressure with hands, arms, and body weight from the masseuse to the patient’s muscles. By targeting the deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue, deep tissue massage can help to break up and reduce scar tissue, which can help to improve mobility and range of motion. In addition to reducing chronic pain and stiffness, deep tissue massage can also help to improve overall circulation. The intense pressure used during a deep tissue massage can help to increase blood flow to the muscles and other soft tissues, which supports oxygenation in the body and speeds up the recovery process.
