What is Deep Tissue?
Deep Tissue is a type of Massage Therapy or Bodywork that focuses on realigning deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue. It can encompass a number of different modalities such as Neuromuscular Therapy, Myofascial Mobilization, Trigger Point Therapy, and Massage Cupping, to name a few. It is especially helpful for chronic aches and pains. Deep Tissue work usually focuses on a specific problem, such as chronic muscle pain, injury rehabilitation and the following conditions:
Lower back pain
Recovery from injuries
Repetitive strain injury
Good communication between the Bodyworker and the Client is vital before, during, and after a Deep Tissue session. The Client's comfort is most important to the Therapist and an overall benefit will be obained by respecting the Client's pain threshhold. The overall goal is pain relief.
