Deep Tissue / Sports: for deep muscular work to improve range of motion and eliminate “knots.”
Deep Tissue Massage is a form of bodywork that aims to relieve tension in the deeper layers of tissue in the body. Concentration is on the neck, shoulders, and back; a combination of light and heavy strokes are used to work the muscle fibers. Deep Tissue Massage is a highly effective method for releasing chronic stress areas due to misalignment, repetitive motions, and past lingering injuries such as carpal tunnel, golfer and tennis elbow, shin splints, and sciatic nerve compression. Due to the nature of the deep tissue work, open communication during the session is crucial to make sure you don't get too uncomfortable. Keep in mind that soreness is pretty common after the treatment, and that plenty of water should be ingested to aid with the flushing and removal of toxins that will have been released from the deep tissue during the session.
