Deep Tissue Massage
Unlike Swedish Massage that only addresses the superficial muscle layer, Deep Tissue reaches the deeper lying muscles. It requires a thorough understanding of anatomy and physiology by the therapist. The therapist can incorporate many different massage methods (myofascial release, trigger point therapy, muscle energy techniques, etc.) to release adhesions or other muscular anomalies that may have formed due to injury, overuse and postural misalignments. The depth of pressure is tailored to the needs of the client. This can be used for relaxation as well as treatment for acute and chronic pain.
