Deep Tissue Massages

Areyou experiencing chronic neck pain, a tight back, or sore shoulders? Deeptissue massage may be the solution to eliminating this pain. Deep tissuemassage focuses on the deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue.

Thischronic pain is often accompanied by bands of painful, rigid tissue in themuscles, tendons, and ligaments. These are called adhesions and they can blockcirculation which can result in pain, inflammation, and restricted movement.

Theobjective of deep tissue massage is to break down the adhesions so that painwill be eliminated and normal movement will be restored. During a deep tissuemassage the therapist will use some of the same strokes that are used in aclassic massage but the movement will be slower and the pressure will be more intense.This pressure is applied to the grain of the muscles.

Thereare times during a deep tissue massage that the client may feel somediscomfort. However, it should not actually hurt. If it becomes too intense,it’s important to tell the therapist. Sometimes there may also be of stiffnessafter the deep tissue massage; this is normal and should go away within about aday.
