Deep tissue massage therapy uses firm pressure and slow stokes to ensure the deeper layers of the muscles and fascia are reached. Deep tissue massage is excellent for chronic aches and pains especially on areas such as neck, upper and lower back pain, leg muscle tightness and shoulders.
Deep tissue massage physically breaks down muscle 'knots' that can cause pain and disrupt circulation around the body. At the beginning of the massage lighter pressure is used which is generally applied to warm up the muscles. Specific techniques are then used to apply gliding pressure along the length of the muscle fibers. Friction is also applied across the grain of the muscle to release adhesions and realign the muscle tissue fibers.
