Deep Tissue Massage

Deep tissue massage therapy incorporates firm pressure and slow strokes to reach deep layers of muscle and fascia (connective tissue). Massage strokes may include gentle light pressure to warm up the muscle and then specific techniques to break up scar tissue, knots or adhesions (bands of painful, rigid tissue), increasing the range of motion, reducing inflammation and pain.
