Deep Tissue Massage
Deep Tissue Massage is a massage technique that concentrates on the deeper layers of muscle tissue to relax it. Can be applied using a combination of slow strokes and deep pressure by fingers, hands and forearms.
Deep tissue massage is more than just a massage with deep pressure. The goals and techniques are different from a Swedish massage. While it may help with certain conditions, remember that massage doesn't always have to hurt or make your body sore to be effective.
Fascia is the tissue where the musculoskeletal system, circulatory system, and nervous system all unite.
It runs from the top of the head to the tip of the toes. Healthy fasciae are flexible structures that can resist great tensile forces.
However, when the fascia is injured lead to a restriction of joint motion.
Myofascial Massage is a safe and effective manual therapy that involves applying sustained pressure into the fascia.
