Deep Tissue Massage is a great massage for our clientele that tend to suffer from muscle pains, joint pains, and very tight upper/lower back problems. Many people think that ‘deep tissue’ means that the Therapist would be applying this deep pressure to the entire body during the entire massage, yet this is not true. Deep tissue work during the massage is reserved for those areas that truly need the deeper work to reach the suffering muscles that may be difficult or hard to reach otherwise.
You have to think about your body like an active machine. If your car is running well, has new tires, and one tire gets a flat…would you replace ‘all’ your tires? No, you’d get the one tire fixed that needed to be replaced to get your car in working order again. Well, the same method would apply to deep tissue massage. We wouldn’t want to work deeply on a muscle that is in perfect health and working as it should be. We want to target your sore areas and help you truly find healing relief from your pains to speed your recovery and get you on your way to a healthier happier self.
Deep Tissue Massage is ideal for Athletes, Office Workers (due to very poor posture from daily sitting), and people who may be suffering from chronic muscle pains from old injuries that were never addressed. Your session will begin with a nice soothing heat compress pack which is a form of heat therapy to help your muscles warm up to the necessary work that will be required. Once your muscles are warm, your therapist will do an assessment of your body to discover your trouble areas and then begin your massage session. This massage may require the therapist and yourself as the client to communicate a bit during the session to make sure that your massage is targeting the problem areas and making sure that they are being healed.
