Deep tissue techniques are useful tools and an essential part of massage therapy if underlying muscular tension and restricted movement is encountered and not relieved by traditional classical massage movements.  These techniques, correctly applied can provide exceptional results in the rehabilitation of chronic pain conditions.  Stretching also provides increased flexibility for not only athletes but any client with restrictions in joint mobility.  Overall creating a general feeling of lightness and wellness in everyone.


In recent years, deep tissue massage techniques have taken over the traditional Swedish massage in popularity and for good reason.  Unlike other massage, a deep tissue massage is performed only on the affected areas and aim to release toxins in your body, making the massage therapeutic.
