Deep Tissue Massage
Deep tissue massage is deliberate, focused work that is used to address specific issues such as tightness, pain, injury, limited mobility, stiffness, poor posture, etc. Generally, deep tissue massage is performed on specific areas of the body, based on the client’s particular needs. Deep tissue massage is typically performed on bare skin using small amounts of lotion. This type of massage can be intense at times. Sometimes “deep tissue” is misused to mean a massage performed with sustained deep pressure, but this is not the case. This modality includes a combination of deeper and lighter techniques. Techniques designed to achieve an overall goal of increasing mobility and decreasing pain or stiffness.
Deep tissue massage is recommended for clients who want to address specific areas of pain or injury.
