Service Description

Deep tissue massage is a type of massage therapy that focuses on realigning deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue through manipulation and stretching techniques. It is especially helpful for chronically tense and contracted areas such as stiff necks, low back tightness, and sore shoulders. How does deep tissue massage work? When there is chronic muscle tension or injury, there are usually adhesions (bands of painful, rigid tissue) in muscles, tendons, and ligaments. Adhesions can block circulation and cause pain, limited movement, and cause inflammation. Deep tissue massage works by physically breaking down these adhesions to relieve pain and restore normal movement. To do this, I will use direct deep pressure or friction applied into or across the grain of your muscles. Will deep tissue massage hurt? At certain points during the massage, most people find there is usually some discomfort experienced. I will guide you through the application of deep tissue techniques. It is important to tell me when things hurt and if any soreness or pain you experience is outside your comfort range. There is usually some stiffness or pain after a deep tissue massage, but it should subside within a day or so. It may be useful to apply ice to the area after the massage. What conditions are deep tissue massage used for? Unlike classic massage therapy, which is used for relaxation, deep tissue massage usually focuses on a specific problem or problems, such as: Chronic pain Limited mobility Recovery from injuries (e.g. whiplash, falls, sports injury) Repetitive strain injury, such as carpal tunnel syndrome Postural problems Osteoarthritis pain Fibromyalgia Muscle tension or spasm What can I expect during my visit? I may use fingertips, knuckles, hands, elbows, and forearms during the deep tissue massage. Lots of diagnostic stretching and pressure point release techniques. You will be asked to breathe deeply and steadily as I work on tense areas. It is important to drink plenty of water as you can after the massage to flush metabolic waste from the tissues. Enjoy your journey to saying goodbye to knots and feeling nice! :) Namaste, Nina
