Deep Tissue Massage

Deep Tissue Massage works by manipulating the muscles’ underlying connective tissue—called fascia—to loosen up areas that have stuck together to form “knots” and increase overall flexibility. This technique increases circulation to targeted areas, stretches tissue and releases toxins that are trapped. The motions used in Deep Tissue Massage are similar to those employed in traditional “Swedish” Massage, although they tend to be done against, rather than with the muscular grain.
