Deep Tissue Massage
Deep tissue massage can release tight muscles and connective tissue developed from stress or overuse.
Strong strokes with more pressure are utilized to relieve spasms, chronic tightness and break up adhesions in connective tissue.
While this is more intense massage, it should never be painful! Always let your therapist know your level of pain tolerance as pressure that induces a strong pain response is not conducive to a successful healing process.
Deep tissue massage can be a great addition to your injury rehabilitation plan. Please ask your doctor for clearance if you have recently had surgery or a major injury.
