Deep Tissue Massage

The deep tissue massage is a kind of massage therapy which centers its attention primarily on the ailing, the sore, the painful and the distressed deeper layers of muscles and connective tissues.  Its therapeutic benefits are particularly beneficial for chronically tight and constricted areas such as in cases of stiff necks, tightness of lower backs and aching shoulders.  The strokes of the Deep Tissue massage are not very different from those of any other types of massage therapies but they are slower and with more pressure applied to reach deeper while focusing on troubled areas.

Deep Tissue Massage Benefits

  • Relax stiff muscles to restore pain free movement
  • Reduce muscle tension and chronic pain
  • Relieve stress
  • Un-stick tight muscles and free up creaky joints

Treatable Conditions

Deep tissue massage is very effective in treating chronic problems such as stiff necks, strained or twisted shoulder muscles, and lower back stiffness or pain. It is also highly beneficial in reducing pain and discomfort in conditions such as whiplash and after a fall or an injury.

What to expect

Our highly trained therapists may use their hands, fingertips, knuckles even elbows, to effectively release areas of tension. On occasion you may be asked to take a deep breath to help you to relax.

This deeper style of massage may sometimes cause some soreness during, or in the days following the massage. This is simply the muscles releasing stored tension and toxins and will fade within a few days.
