Deep Tissue Massage 


Deep tissue massage therapy isn’t just a Swedish massage with deeper strokes or harder pressure. Deep tissue massage uses firm pressure and slow strokes to massage deep layers of muscle and fascia, which is the connective tissue that surrounds your muscles.   Deep tissue massages are used to break up scar tissue and break down muscle adhesions (the “knots” that we feel in our muscles are muscle adhesions, which are bands of rigid and painful muscle tissue). Our circulation is impeded and we feel pain and inflammation due to these knots.

Deep Tissue Massage

A deep tissue massage may improve circulation, reduce minor aches and pain, increase range of motion, and ease inflammation. According to a study in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine, deep tissue massage helped to lower blood pressure after just one session. If you’re looking to rehab an old injury or are dealing with minor aches and pains, talk with your massage therapist about working deep tissue massage into your next visit.
