Deep Tissue Massage

Deep Tissue Massage is a massage technique that focuses on the deeper layers of muscle tissue.  It is used to release chronic muscle tension through slower strokes and more direct deep pressure or friction applied across the grain of the muscles not with the grain. Deep tissue massage helps to break up and eliminate scar tissue. Deep tissue massage usually focuses on more specific areas and may cause some soreness during or right after the massage.

However, if the massage is done correctly you should feel better than ever within a day or two. It feels good and it is beneficial to your health.   When muscles are stressed, they block oxygen and nutrients, leading to inflammation that builds up toxins in the muscle tissue.   A deep-tissue massage helps loosen muscle tissues, release toxins from muscles and get blood and oxygen circulating properly. Because many toxins are released, it’s important to drink plenty of water after a deep-tissue session to help eliminate these toxins from the body.

The purpose is to “unstick” the fibres of a muscle while releasing deeply-held patterns of tension, removing toxins, while relaxing and soothing the muscle.  It is both corrective and therapeutic.
