Deep Tissue and Sports Therapy

Stimulation of Skin and Muscle with Therapeutic Intent

Deep tissue therapy comes from European anatomic and physiological concepts which focus on realigning deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue. The massage is best for giving attention to certain painful, stiff “trouble spots” in your body. Though less rhythmic than other types of massage, deep tissue massage may be therapeutic—relieving chronic patters of tension and helping muscle injuries in areas like:

Stiff necks
Low back tightness
Sore shoulders
Tired legs

The massage therapist uses slow, deliberate strokes that focus pressure on layers of muscles, tendons, or other tissues deep under your skin. The therapy is a method of handling the body by rubbing, pinching, kneading or tapping. The practitioner uses his bare hands in the prone and supine comfortable position. Oil or cream is applied to the areas of massage, through slower strokes and more direct deep pressure application across the grain of the muscles.

The practitioners experienced hands are warm and will aid, to break up and eliminate scar tissue. The therapy focuses on more specific areas and may cause some soreness during or right after the therapy. Deep tissue therapy is used to treat particular muscular-skeletal areas to give you relief from pain.

Deep tissue massage is applied to both the superficial and deep layers of muscles, fascia, and other affected areas. The sessions are often intense as a deliberate, focused work. You can expect to receive physical benefits as well as a psychological and symbolic effect of human touch which is deeply soothing. This can relieve symptoms especially those of undue muscle tension. Therapy at different depths, rates and strengths are used in sports massages to break down adhesions (deep friction).
