Deep tissue massage is a type of massage therapy that focuses on realigning deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue.

It is especially helpful for chronically tense and contracted areas such as stiff necks, low back tightness, and sore shoulders. Some of the same strokes are used as classic massage therapy, but the movement is slower and the pressure is deeper and concentrated on areas of tension and pain.

How does Deep Tissue Massage work?

When there is chronic muscle tension or injury, there are usually adhesions (bands of painful, rigid tissue) in muscles, tendons, and ligaments. Adhesions can block circulation, cause pain and limit movement. Deep tissue massage works by physically breaking down these adhesions to relieve pain and aleviate symptoms.

Deep Tissue & Sports Massage can relieve muscular congestion and pain, improve circulation and therefore aid the lymphatic system. This is believed to enhance the functional quality of muscle tissue.

Regular massage can assist circulation and regulate the flow of fluid throughout the entire body. This nourishes and cleanses cells, assisting the regeneration of tissue, flushing the body of harmful wastes and toxins, increasing
resistance to sickness and disease.
