Feeling sore after a workout? Tension in your back and shoulders? A deep tissue massage could be your answer. Deep Tissue Massage targets the deep tissue structure of the fascia and muscles, referred to as connective tissue. Of the many types of massage, deep tissue focuses on the release of muscle tension and chronic knots. Working on trigger points by applying pressure for a short period before releasing and smoothing the muscles allows the natural healing process by encouraging blood flow to the affected area Stretching techniques are also used to enable the muscles to relax, allowing penetration of the deeper layer of muscle tissue The massage techniques used in Deep Tissue Massage involve slow stroking on the contracted areas of the body, reaching one layer below the body muscles, and applying pressure on the connective tissue. Therefore, a deep tissue massage not only relaxes the body, it also begins a healing process that's beneficial to the client. This is achieved by encouraging increased blood and oxygen circulation in the affected areas flushing out the toxin build up that comes from intense and sustain tension The overall effect is a more flexible body and relaxed state of mind as a result of becoming free of tension and pain
