Deep Tissue Massage

Deep Tissue Massage

This massage requires the therapist to break through the superficial layers of the skin, and down through the fascia (connective tissue surrounding all organs etc.) to where knots have formed, due to injury or tension. 

In order to work these knots out, and give you a greater range of movement, a very firm pressure needs to be applied.

The massage begins with stretching the skin, and a few Swedish massage techniques to warm up the muscles, then techniques with the knuckles and elbows are used to break down through the fascia and into the knot.

Because of the deep pressure, certain parts of a deep tissue massage can be painful. However, it should not be unbearable, and pressure can always be adjusted until a more tolerable pressure is reached. 

Obviously, everyone is different and will benefit from massage individually, however, more often than not, most people feel the benefits of deep tissue massage after just one treatment!

Sometimes, if a client has a very stubborn knot, or has a lot of tension build up, I will use Myofascia release techniques, in addition to deep tissue massage techniques.
