Deep Tissue Massage focuses on the deeper layers of the body’s muscle tissue. It is designed to reach the deep sections of thick muscles, specifically the individual muscle fibres. Among these Deep layers we can develop adhesions and Trigger Points (knots) causing pain and restriction.

Using deep muscle frictions and compression along the targeted muscles, the purpose of Deep Tissue Massage is to unstick the fibres of the muscles and release both toxins and deeply held Trigger points. Specific hand positions and strokes are used to release the various tissues while breath and movement techniques are employed to further release muscular restriction.

Benefits of Deep Tissue Massage

It is beneficial for many physical problems, including sports injuries and chronic pain.

Additionally as it works very deeply, emotional issues can also be addressed, when these have been stored in the body.
Depending on the severity of the issue and the chronic nature of an individual’s tightness it may take 2-4 treatments to release the superficial layers so we can work deeper and get to the most stubborn areas of contraction.
