Deep tissue massage is a technique that is used to treat chronic muscle tension through slow strokes and direct deep pressure or friction.
These enable the deeper layers of muscles which may have scar tissue, adhesions or chronic tension to be worked on directly, helping to break up and eliminate any scar tissue or tension.
It is an excellent massage to help get rid of deep rooted knots especially in the neck and shoulders. You may notice some soreness during or right after the massage, however, you should feel better than ever after a day or two.
Deep Tissue Massage helps to loosen tight muscles, improve circulation of blood and oxygen, and releases toxins from the muscles. Due to the release of toxins you will need to increase the amount of water that you drink, encouraging the release of toxins from your system.
