Deep Tissue Massage is a technique that focuses on the deeper layers of the muscle tissue. Many people suffer with lower back pain or shoulder pain and some have both. It is usually caused through stress and anxiety. Tension in these areas is released through slow strokes and deep pressure applied on the affected area. These strokes either follow or move across the grain of muscles, tendons and fascia.
Using the hands, fist, forearm or elbow, deep pressure is applied with oil. This helps to break up and eliminate any scar tissue.
Deep tissue massage therapy helps to loosen stiff muscles, release toxins from muscles and gets blood and oxygen circulating properly.
