Deep Tissue/Sports Massage
If your aches and pains are a little more chronic, this massage is designed for you. Techniques applied work by realigning deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue, strokes are also performed against the grain. This allows for stripping of the muscles, improving the fascia tensegrity. Movement of strokes is slower and the pressure is deeper and concentrated on areas of tension and pain. Stretches to increase your range of motion are also incorporated into the massage. The massage is designed based on your needs and focuses on more specific areas. There are many benefits of a deep tissue massage, such as, help breaking up scar tissue, promote flexibility, remove fatigue, improve endurance, and help prevent injuries. There is a possibility of slight soreness during and after massage may occur, but will disappear within a day or two, leaving you feeling better than ever.
