Deep Tissue Massage is a form of bodywork aimed at releasing tension in muscle and connective tissue. Muscle and connective tissue can become compromised or restricted due to chronic stress, overuse, injury, surgery, nutritional deficiencies, hormonal changes or other underlying conditions. Deep Tissue Massage helps restore the integrity of soft tissue by facilitating a release in “stuck” tissue. This encourages endorphin release (the body’s natural pain killer), increased circulation, relaxation of the nervous system and improved mobility.
Sessions are based on personal needs, preferences and wellness goals. While sessions tend to be focused around a particular area in pain, the work is integrative meaning that massage is not only applied to the “problem” area. The body is complex, the way we move and feel in our bodies depends on so many factors. Receiving Deep Tissue Massage is an excellent way to decompress and relieve stress.
