Deep Tissue Massage
Restore your body and achieve optimum physical condition
What is Deep Tissue Massage?
Unlike Relaxation Massage, the Deep Tissue Massage applies pressure and aims to treat issues related to the muscles by using slow strokes and firm pressure to release stress from the deepest layers of your muscles and fascia (connective tissue). This massage reduces stress and tension and promotes serotonin production promoting happiness.
Deep Tissue Massage works by breaking down muscle adhesions, a condition which occurs when collagen fibers bond to adjacent tissue. These adhesions block circulation and cause issues with mobility and inflammation. Breaking down these adhesions restore the body, relieving pain and increasing muscle movement.
Although still relaxing for most people, the Deep Tissue Massage may cause discomfort for some as it is quite intense. To avoid being too sore the next day, It is important to drink plenty of water after the massage to help flush the lactic acid from your body. Some soreness may still occur for a day or two after, but this just means that a lot of toxins were flushed out of your body.
