Deep tissue massage is like Swedish massage but is used to target knots and release chronic muscle tension. If you have pain or tension in a specific area of your body, massaging those muscles along with other muscles with that referral pain, will help alleviate the pain that is occurring. We will assist you to become more aware of your posture and educate you about the muscular system. We incorporate stretches in the massage and show you how to stretch at home to aid in the healing process. This massage is good for chronic pain, general soreness or stiffness, loss of range of motion, neck pain, TMJ (grinding, clenching), low back pain, sciatica, knee problems, carpal tunnel syndrome, rotator cuff problems and much more.
The focus is on the deepest layers of muscle tissue, tendons, and fascia (the protective layer surrounding muscles, bones and joints). The more intense movements and techniques such as deep finger pressure may be slightly uncomfortable and cause soreness that lasts a couple of days before resulting in the desired relaxation and pain relief.
