Deep Tissue Massage
Recommended for releasing tension and improving mobility. Client assists by breathing into area of discomfort, helping muscle tension melt away.

FAQ:
What is your Deep Tissue Massage approach?
My approach is to work slowly, mindfully and to hone in on my client’s breathing pattern as a guide. I tend to hold massage technique until I feel a shift in the quality of tissue. In general, my goal is to offer a comprehensive approach by addressing superficial tissue, muscle bellies and connective tissue.

Do you have post massage self-care recommendations?
Going for a walk after a massage session is a great way to bring movement to the body. Make sure to keep hydrated and do your best to listen to your body’s needs. 

How often should I get Deep Tissue Massage?
I recommend scheduling a massage on a regular basis as part of a wellness plan for maintenance of soft tissue, increased body awareness and prevention of muscular dysfunction. Areas holding tension have usually been under stress for a long time. The body needs time and consistency to take in change. Follow-up appointments are recommended for areas with mild to moderate restriction.
