Deep tissue massage is a type of massage therapy that focuses on deeper layers of muscle and fascia in the body.

Combined with relaxation massage, it is used to treat a variety of physical ailments. Chronic pains and muscle tension or injury, they are usually adhesions in muscles, tendons, and ligaments causing general fatigue and pain. Stressed muscles or scar tissue can block nutrients and oxygen from getting to where they are supposed to go, which in turn cause inflammation, that allows toxins to build up in the muscle tissue. The inflammation and toxins contribute to both pain and stress.

Deep Tissue Massage deals with painful conditions on therapeutic level and focuses on treating a particular region of the body associated with the discomfort, such as stiff neck and upper back, sore shoulders, low back pain, leg and arm muscle tightness. It can eliminate those problems by breaking down these adhesions & loosening the muscles to relieve pain, using deep finger, firm strokes, forearm, elbow pressure, incorporating trigger point therapy, to restore normal body’s movement, as well as to increase production of serotonin, the hormone that promotes happiness and good feelings.
