Deep Tissue is a more intense form of massage that targets chronic areas of tension in the muscles, tendons and connective tissue. When a muscle is injured due to strain or overuse, the body produces chemicals that cause inflammation in order for healing to take place. These chemicals cause the muscles and connective tissue to get stuck together forming fibrous bands of scar tissue called “adhesions”. These adhesions can cause pain and restrict movement in the body. Deep Tissue massage helps free the different layers of muscles, tendons and connective tissue by breaking down these adhesions. This intensive work relaxes muscle tissue, improving circulation and eliminating toxins from the tissues. Deep Tissue Massage is a very effective treatment for repetitive strain injuries such as tendonitis.
