Deep Tissue Massage
What is Deep Tissue Massage?
Deep Tissue Massage is a massage technique that focuses on the deeper layers of muscle tissue. The goal is to release the chronic patterns of tension in the body through slow strokes and deep pressure on the contracted areas, either following with, or going across the fiber direction of the muscles,tendons and fascia.
These techniques are used to release chronic muscle tension through slower strokes and more direct deep pressure or applied friction. Deep tissue massage helps to break down and eliminate scar tissue. Deep tissue massage usually focuses on more specific areas and may cause some soreness during treatments or right afterwards. However, if the massage is done correctly you should feel better than ever within a day or two.
Why get a Deep Tissue Massage?
When muscles are stresed, they block oxygen and nutrients, leading to inflammation that builds up toxins in the muscles and surrounding tissues. A deep tissue massage helps loosen muscle fibers, there by releasing toxins from muscles and supplying fresh blood and oxygen. Healthier circulation is then properly restored. Because so many toxins are released into the system, it is important to drink plenty of pure water before and after a deep tissue session to help eliminate these toxins from the body.
