Deep Tissue Massage works through tension, layer by layer, reaching the deeper muscles where persistent discomfort can be released. Much of the work is focused on bringing the body back into balance by working on the fascia—the soft tissue component of the connective tissue system of the body. The work is usually localized, and the client must be relaxed to permit the practitioner to work deeply. The pressure starts lightly but progresses to the deepest level the client can tolerate. This approach can be either corrective or generally therapeutic.
Deep Tissue Massage targets specific areas of concern to alleviate symptoms of nerve impingement, muscle tears and sprains, and chronic muscular pain. It has been found effective in treating chronic pain, muscle adhesions (muscle fibers that stick together creating a knot or nodule), whiplash, neck and lower back pain, sciatica, and circulatory problems.
