Deep tissue massage can be used to alleviate pain and stress from the body. Unlike a Swedish massage which uses lighter pressure for a soothing effect, deep tissue massage involves the use of fingertips, knuckles, hands, elbows, and forearms, with slow strokes focusing on deep muscle tissue and tendons. The focus is on manipulating deep layers of tissue in your body for pain relief. This type of massage is ideal for major muscle groups like the neck and back areas.
Keep in mind that deep tissue massage is used for therapy and rehabilitation, so be prepared for some slight discomfort during the massage. The discomfort you feel will be the relieveng of the strain that you feel in these deeper muscle tissues. Our therapists are experienced and licensed, so if you have any concerns during a massage, please inform them and they will make the proper adjustments so you have a rewarding experience.
