Deep Tissue Massage

The process of deep tissue massage, the pressure and tools used and the techniques used to reach your therapeutic goals vary according to the client. Deep tissue work is a matter of moving through superficial tissue with greater pressure in order to access muscles living deeper within the body.

Typically, the tissue is warmed and prepared with a variety of strokes before beginning deeper work. Depending upon your needs and preferences, techniques such as deep compression, friction, muscle stripping and myofascial release can be used throughout the entire treatment and more precise work can be performed on specific muscle groups or individual muscles.

The overall goal is to access muscles on a more then superficial level, reform muscle and connective tissue and break up adhesions.
