Deep Tissue Massage

What is Deep Tissue Massage? Deep tissue massage focuses on the myofascial system, using deeper strokes with the help of elbows, fist and knuckles to engage with dysfunctional tissue and to help restore the soft tissue back to a more normal state.

Most Effective Massage For: This type of massage is effective for reducing aches and pains. It can also be applied to specific injuries.

To work deep does not necessarily imply pain will be inflicted. The purpose of working deeply is to work intelligently with the soft tissue and any pain felt should be a "good" pain. It should feel like pain released rather than being inflicted. You may feel a soreness following the treatment but this should be a positive soreness, similar to a workout.

The treatment involves a certain amount of assessment to locate the source of a problem and then a selected range of techniques are applied for the area and the condition of the tissue.
