DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE
Designed to relieve chronic and severe tension in the muscles and connective tissue (fascia). The focus is on the deepest layers of muscle tissue, tendons and fascia (the protective layer surrounding muscles, bones and joints).
This massage is useful in treating chronic pain, inflammation, injury, and restoring flexibility in strained muscles. Deep tissue massage can help minimize lower back pains, release tension in a stiff neck, and reduce soreness in shoulders and upper back. This massage also helps to break up lactic acid buildup (knots). Many people notice an improved range of motion and pain reduction following this treatment.
If you have specific concerns or areas that need special attention, make sure to let us know. Your relaxation and wellness goals are our first concern.
Tip – Some people have soreness following therapeutic massage and others never do. Soreness may start quickly or within a day but is usually gone in just a few (2-3) days.
You may ice or heat these sore areas to help get rid of the tenderness. Drinking lots of water helps flush the metabolic (body) wastes that are released by the massage through normal elimination channels–your kidneys. This helps prevent soreness and is always a good idea to do following a massage (unless your doctor says otherwise).
