Deep tissue massage works by physically breaking down chronic muscle tension to relieve pain and restore normal movement. To do this, the massage therapist uses massage oil and often uses direct deep pressure. Muscles must be relaxed in order for the therapist to reach the deeper musculature.
THE BENEFITS OF DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE INCLUDE:
Releases tension and stiffness from muscles, tendons, ligaments, joints and fascia.
Increases flexibility and suppleness.
Breaks down old scar tissue and adhesions.
