Deep Tissue Massage works on deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue and aims to release chronic patterns of tension in the body. Deep Tissue Massage techniques are slow and firm and work to release contracted areas either by following or crossing over the muscle fibres and connective tissue.
Deep Tissue Massage can be combined with other styles to create an appropriate massage solution for you.
In addition to releasing tension and treating injuries Deep Tissue Massage can also:
Improve range of motion through joints, release toxins from muscles and Promote blood and oxygen circulation
It is important to drink plenty of water after a massage session to help flush lactic acid out of the tissues. If you don’t your more likely to be sore the next day (particularly after a deeper massage).
