Deep Tissue is a specifically focused massage technique. Deep Tissue massage is often recommended if you have chronic conditions such as postural deviations, low back pain, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Tennis Elbow, Thoracic Outlet Syndrome, Sciatica issues, Fibromyalgia, Restless Leg Syndrome and a variety of other tendinitis and muscle spasm related issues.
Additionally, individuals who experience consistent pain and soreness in both large and small muscle groups have experienced a relief from discomfort. Using slow, deep guided strokes and firm pressure to release superficial muscles, we work the deep muscles of the body where aches and muscle tightness can originate causing the symptoms you experience.
To get to the deeper muscle layer, a lower percentage of adipose tissue over the muscle or muscle groups being worked is recommended for best efficacy and to reduce superficial tenderness. While Deep Tissue massage can be intense and highly uncomfortable, we never want you in pain. The “no pain no gain” motto is not the case with us. Once you reach the pain threshold, your muscles kick their protection mechanism into gear by tightening up and the treatment becomes counter-productive.
