Deep tissue massage
Deep tissue massage is a form of massage therapy that focuses on accessing the deeper layers of muscles, tendons and ligaments in the body. Sometimes also referred to as myofascial release, it is often recommended for individuals who experience consistent pain, are involved in heavy physical activity (such as athletes), and patients who have sustained physical injury. It can be particularly helpful for chronically tense and contracted areas such as stiff necks, muscular cramps, lower back tightness, and sore shoulders. This is the best choice of treatments, if you would like to regularly have it for preventing a wide range of conditions.
When there is chronic muscle tension or injury, there are usually adhesions (bands of painful, rigid tissue) in muscles, tendons, and ligaments. Adhesions can block circulation and cause pain, limited movement, and inflammation. Deep tissue massage works by physically breaking down these adhesions to relieve pain and restore normal movement. To do this, the massage therapist uses massage oil and often uses direct pressure to reach the deeper musculature. Deep tissue massage will improve your flexibility and pain free range of motion; ease any aches or pains you might be experiencing and/or loosen off deep seated stress and tensions.
