Deep tissue massage is a deep, firm and herd massage which applies increased pressure at treatment progresses, it is best suited for athletes, runners, and people with serious injuries.
This type of modality facilitates healing by releasing contracted muscle and tissue. It can help increase blood flow and reduce inflammation.

Deep tissue massage targets the inner layers of your muscles, tendons, and fascia (dense connective tissue) and uses similar techniques as Swedish massage, but with more pressure. The pressure can be painful sometimes. It is used for treating sports injuries, soreness from poor posture, and chronic spasms. It also helps with chronic muscular pain, injury rehabilitation and reduces inflammation-related pain.

How It Works

Deep tissue massage helps release resistant “knots” to create a better range of motion for joints and muscles. It focuses on damaged tissue with its deep and precise massage techniques. Appropriate pressure is applied to promote healing of scar tissue as well as relief from the pain of soft tissue injuries, chronic conditions, stress and tension.

Deep Tissue Massage Techniques

Deep tissue massages begin as a traditional relaxing massage and after the muscles are warmed up, the massage therapist will begin to apply more pressure with palms, finger tips, knuckles, forearms or elbows for more effective results.
A fair amount of soreness in following days is expected after your treatment, treating affected area with ice, heat and stretching is recommended.
