Deep Tissue

Deep Tissue massage is an intensive treatment that focuses on the deeper layers of the muscles. Special “cross fiber” techniques aim to break up scar tissue. This is especially beneficial for athletes and those with an active lifestyle.

Deep Tissue massage focuses on realigning deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue. These sessions will use more intense pressure than what is used during a Swedish massage and it is normal for people to experience a manageable amount of pain while therapists work on tight and contracted muscles. For any type of athlete, Deep Tissue massage will assist in injury prevention and improved training. All varieties of sports and physical activities can lead to imbalances that can cause injury. By improving circulation, eliminating tight spots and working out adhesions that impede optimal performance, massage can facilitate repair and help to keep athletes at their best.

Some of the same strokes are used as Swedish massage, but the movement is slower and the pressure is deeper and concentrated on areas of tension and pain. Those who would like to have a more gentle session and whose primary goal is relaxation should look into Swedish Massage.
