Deep Tissue Massage

When your tight muscles need deep relief they are calling for a Deep Tissue Massage.

Deep Tissue Massage Focus   Uses slow strokes and firm pressure contacts to focus on the deeper layers of your muscles.

Release   Deep rooted patterns of tension in the body are unwound.  This is especially true when a series of massages are received. 

Tenderize   Things like sitting at a desk for long periods, chronic poor posture patterns or sports injuries can lead to inflammation.  When there is inflammation in your muscles the body heals by laying down of scar tissue.  This causes pain and dysfunction.  With deep tissue massage scar tissue from old injuries can be softened.  Therefore, scar tissue has less of an impact on your body’s muscles, tendons, ligaments and joints.

Detoxify    Spasmodic muscles can release toxins with this massage so it is vital that you consume a lot of purified water after your session.  Detoxification may also be enhanced by specific dietary recommendations.

Strengthen   If one muscle is too tight it can cause a reflexive inhibition of another muscle making it weaker.  When going to the spasmed muscle, we can help you strengthen inhibited muscles.  This helps, decrease pain and optimize your joint mechanics.  We strongly recommend Deep Tissue Massage for people who have had to be in be or inactive for long periods of time.

We realize that you may not want your entire massage to be deep tissue.  Please allow us to give you a massage which is perfectly crafted for your needs.  (408) 274-2244

PLEASE NOTE- Deep tissue massage is designed to relieve severe tension in the muscle and the connective tissue or fascia. This type of massage focuses on the muscles located below the surface. Therefore, it is not uncommon to be sore for a day or two. You may want to use an ice pack on the sore area for 20 min after the massage.
