Deep Tissue Massage
Releases deep-seated chronic patterns of muscular tension. This form of massage loosens muscle tissues, increases blood and oxygen circulation to areas of stiffness and tension, and promotes greater flexibility and movement.
Massage therapists giving deep tissue massage use harder pressing movements to help release adhesions and drive blood flow. This might be uncomfortable for those that are unused to deep tissue. The benefits make any discomfort worth it. Deep tissue massage is very effective at reliving sports-related injury pain and osteoarthritic pain.
