WHAT TO EXPECT
Deep Tissue Massage Therapy is a massage that applies heavy pressure along muscles to release muscle tension. The pressure being added is to target the deepest layer of muscle tissue. It is typically not painful, however it may cause a small amount of discomfort given the higher amount of pressure being applied to isolate the deep tissue muscles.
Deep tissue massage therapy allows the body to benefit from it in more ways than one. This type of massage not only releases chronic muscle tension, but it also increases relaxation, blood flow, and range of motion. Deep tissue massage therapy lowers blood pressure, anxiety, reduces muscle spasms, and can speed up recovery time for injuries. Consult with your licensed massage therapist to explore the benefits to see how Deep Tissue Massage Therapy can benefit you.
