Deep tissue massage
Deep tissue massage focuses on realigning deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue of the body. It is especially helpful for chronically tense and contracted areas such as stiff necks, low back tightness, shore shoulders or muscle tension and spasms. Some of the same strokes are used as in classic Swedish massage, but the movement is slower and pressure is deeper and concentrated on areas of tension and pain.
Benefits include pain relief from chronic muscle tension, increased blood flow to muscle tissue, and elimination or reduction of adhesions and scar tissue. Additionally, many people notice improved range of motion immediately after a deep tissue massage.
