Deep Tissue Massage

High Resolution -101Deep tissue massage focuses on the deeper muscles in the body, as its name implies. While it may take more pressure to engage these muscles, it is possible to receive a deep tissue massage without pain. The goal of deep tissue massage is to reduce the restrictions of the less superficial muscles of the body in order to increase range of motion and promote easy, free movement.

A deep tissue massage releases restrictions in the deeper muscles of the body, and it is not uncommon for the receiver of deep tissue massage to experience soreness for a day or two after the massage. It is important to let your massage therapist know if pressure needs to be moderated to your comfort level. Your therapist will be happy to adjust her pressure accordingly.

Deep tissue is helpful in relieving chronic muscular pain, promoting healing in the muscles, and freeing up scar tissue.
