Deep Tissue Massage aims to release the chronic patterns of tension in the body through slow strokes and deep finger pressure on the contracted areas, either following or going across the fibres of the muscles, tendons and fascia. A deep-tissue massage helps loosen muscle tissues, release toxins from muscles and get blood and oxygen circulating properly.
Your practitioner will begin by taking a consultation and follow this with the massage treatment. The areas of the body which require most attention will be given most time.
Deep tissue massage is often used to relieve low back pain and loosen tight muscles.
