Deep tissue massage involves firm manipulation and focuses on realigning the deepest layers of muscle tissue, tendons and fascia (the protective layer surrounding muscles, bones and joints). Deep tissue massage helps to ease chronic muscular aches and pains. Releasing contracted muscle tissues in areas such as a stiff neck and upper back, low back pain, leg muscle tightness and sore shoulders. It can also be used to relieve strain and treat injuries in your joints and tendons.
At the beginning of the massage, quick lighter pressure is generally applied to warm up and prep the muscles. Then slow deeper pressure along the length of the muscle fibers using the elbow, forearm, knuckles and thumbs is concentrated on areas where there is chronic tension or injury. Pressure is applied across the grain of a muscle to release adhesion’s and realign tissue fibers. Specific areas of the body are targeted focusing on major muscle groups.
