Deep Tissue Massage focuses on realigning deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue. It is especially helpful for chronically tense and contracted areas such as stiff necks, low back tightness, and sore shoulders. This massage physically breaks down adhesions to relieve pain and restore normal movement. To do this, the massage therapist often uses direct slow movements, deep pressure, as well as friction applied across the grain of the muscles.
Benefits of Deep Tissue Massage:
