Mainly focuses on realigning deeper layers of muscles, fascia and other connective tissues of the body. Using slow and strong movements to stimulate deeper tissues allowing the release of muscular adhesions.
Deep tissue massage should not hurt but will be a little more uncomfortable than a classic massage due to the increased pressure and specialised movements to access deeper layers. In turn this allows the therapist to access, break up and release the built-up toxins that would have been causing the pain within the muscle. This massage can cause some discomfort after; however, the soreness should go away within a day or two.
It is especially helpful for:
- Relief from chronic aches and pains
- Muscles stiffness such as stiff neck and upper back
- Aids lower back pain
- Muscle tightness from sporting activities
- Relaxes muscular tension
- Stress relief
- Restores mobility, improves spinal alignment and lessens pains due to postural deformities
- Reduces and eliminates scar tissue from previous injuries
- Helps relieve headaches
