What is a Deep Tissue Massage?
Deep tissue massage therapy is designed to penetrate the layers of muscle tissue, tendons and fascia (the protective layer surrounding muscles, bones and joints) to relieve severe muscle tension and toxin build up.
Deep tissue massage techniques are very similar to the Swedish method but with stronger, deeper strokes. This added pressure helps increase blood flow and breakdown connective tissue promoting overall wellness. A 2010 meta-analysis in the Journal of Clinical Psychiatry found that massage therapy can significantly reduce cortisol (stress hormone) levels while simultaneously increasing oxytocin and serotonin (pleasure hormones) levels for an emotional pick me up!
Deep tissue massage therapy is not recommended for those who are new to massage therapy because of the increased pressure. Please talk with your professional massage therapist to see if deep tissue massage therapy sessions would be beneficial for you.
*Deep tissue massage utilizes strong strokes to release pent up tension. Please inform your therapist if the pressure needs adjustment. It is not uncommon for you feel a little soreness during and / or after your massage session. Please drinks lots of water to promote toxin flush and prevent excessive soreness.
