Deep Tissue Massage

Overview of the treatment

Deep tissue massage is a type of massage therapy that focuses on realigning deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue that surrounds the joints and the spine. Focussed sets of techniques are used to release deep-seated tension and relieve postural in balance.
Deep tissue massage works by physically breaking down adhesions (bands of painful, rigid tissue) to relieve pain and restore normal movement.

Deep tissue massage is calming and energizing experience. It is especially helpful for stiff necks, low back tightness, and sore shoulders. This treatment helps with following conditions: chronic pain, limited mobility, recovery from injuries like whiplash, falls, repetitive strain injury such as carpal tunnel syndrome, postural problems, Fibromyalgia, muscle tension or spasm.

How the treatment is done

During deep tissue massage some of the same strokes are used as in classic massage therapy, but the movement is slower and the pressure is deeper and concentrated on areas of tension and pain. A variety of methods like applying finger and thumb pressure, kneading with both palms are used. Deep tissue massage can be tailored to personal needs. There are 30 min, 60 min and 90 min treatments available.
