Deep Tissue Massage

Deep Tissue Massage 

This is a more penetrating form of bodywork that goes deep into the layers of muscle and connective tissue where chronic pain, aches, and fatigue are trapped.

Each layer of muscle must be relaxed in order to reach the deeper layer. When the muscles are properly relaxed, a client often will not perceive the work as feeling deep.

By helping to remove accumulated lactic acid and other waste products from the muscles, deep tissue massage works to detoxify tissue. Lactic acid is a natural chemical byproduct of muscular contractions. An accumulation of lactic acid deep within a muscle causes soreness and stiffness if it is not removed.

Deep Tissue Massage usually concentrates on”clearing out” a specific area of the body such as feet, legs, back, arms, neck or shoulders rather than being a full body type of massage such as Swedish massage.

What to expect during a session?

This massage is done with the client nude, draped with a sheet or large towel, only exposing the area of the body that requires therapeutic treatment. There should be an open and clear communication between you and the therapist regarding the level of pressure applied, sensitive areas and general comfort. It is very beneficial to drink plenty of water after a treatment to flush out toxins from your system.
