Deep Tissue Massage


Deep tissue massage works specifically to realign the different layers of tissue, treating muscles,  tendons, ligaments and fascia. It involves applying firm pressure and slow strokes to reach deeper layers of muscle to release tension , increasing mobility and reducing chronic pain. It can be full body or partial.

Fascia is a type of connective tissue that  surrounds the bones, joints and muscles and  most structures within the human body,  and provides  support and protection to those structures.  This tissue can become restricted due to overuse, trauma, infectious agents or inactivity, often resulting in pain and muscle tension.
