WHAT IS A DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE TREATMENT?

Deep tissue massage focuses on the different layers of tissue (muscle, tendons and fascia), working to relax, lengthen, and release strain patterns within them so that the body’s posture can realign itself.  Physical and emotional traumas can tighten and stiffen these tissues.  When this happens, the body moves out of a state of natural alignment and loses its flexibility and gravitational balance.  Working deeply does not necessarily mean applying lots of pressure.  The techniques used in deep tissue massage are also applied more slowly, so as to avoid causing the recipient discomfort when working deeply into the muscle and connective tissue, as well as allowing the nervous system to integrate the work.
