Deep tissue massage is also based on Swedish massage techniques but is applied slowly and strongly to contact and work on the deeper muscle layers and tissues to provide intense physical relaxation.
Deep tissue therapists learn a wide range of styles and techniques and blend these into their unique treatment – including fascia release techniques.
They are able to alter their approach depending upon the client.
It is used to release chronic muscle tension through slower strokes and more direct deep pressure or friction applied across the grain of the muscles not with the grain. Deep tissue massage helps to break up and eliminate scar tissue.
When muscles are stressed, they block oxygen and nutrients, leading to inflammation that builds up toxins in the muscle tissue. A deep-tissue massage helps loosen muscle tissues, release toxins from muscles and get blood and oxygen circulating properly. Because many toxins are released during that treatment, we invite our clients to drink plenty of water after such a session to help eliminate these toxins from the body.
