Deep Tissue Massage
DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE IS A HOLISTIC FORM OF BODYWORK THAT FOCUSES ON DIFFERENT LAYERS OF THE BODY, RELEASING HOLDING PATTERNS and chronic stress.
To relieve tension in the deeper layers of muscle tissue, we apply firm pressure, such as using our elbows or knuckles. It’s not necessarily painful, but talk to your masseur to keep the experience comfortable. Deep Tissue helps you gain a wider range of motion, relieve stress and improve posture. As your physical (and therefore, emotional) stress is released, your body begins to feel suppler and energetic. You might feel a bit sore afterwards, though!
