Deep Tissue MassageThis is type of massage therapy focuses on reaching the deeper layers of muscle and is especially beneficial for tense areas. Deep tissue massage is designed to release those deep, painful muscle knots and restore muscle elasticity. It can help to relieve many day to day problems like bad back, sprains, tension, postural issues, fatigue, lower back tightness, repetitive strain injuries, etc.
Deep Tissue Massage strokes are applied using direct pressure with fingers, knuckles, forearms and even elbows for penetration of the deep tissue. Friction applied across the grain of the muscles irons out the knots and tension points. This type of massage helps to refresh and relax muscles, increasing the blood flow and therefore the oxygen flow around your body. This gets rid of toxins in very sore and strained muscles, which helps them to strengthen and heal.
