Deep Tissue

Deep Tissue is massage aimed at the deeper tissue structures of the muscle and fascia, also called connective tissue. Deep tissue massage uses many of the same movements and techniques as Swedish Massage, but it is more of a therapeutic technique so the pressure will generally be more intense.   It is also a more focused type of massage, as the therapist works to release chronic muscle tension or knots (also known as “adhesions.”) Deep tissue is likely to be a bit more uncomfortable than a classic Swedish massage.    You should always feel free to speak up if the pressure is too much for you.  Many people ask for more pressure, thinking that if the therapist just pushes hard enough, they can get rid of all their knots in an hour.   Although you will see improvement, overdoing it won’t get better results.    Undoing chronic knots and tension build up takes a regular routine devised by your therapist based on your lifestyle and overall physical condition. It isn’t uncommon to feel like sore as if you have worked out after you have had your massage.  It is important to drink plenty of water and take it easy while your body flushes out the toxins and your muscles get used to the increased blood and oxygen.  After the soreness subsides many report feeling a significant improvement in pain and overall energy and in some cases, total improvement.
