What is a 60-Minute Deep Tissue/Medical/Sports Massage?
Deeper pressure, employing firm and slow strokes, is used to reach innate layers of muscle and fascia---the connective tissue surrounding muscles. Active and passive stretching techniques are often incorporated to increase the range of motion.
This massage usually focuses on specific problems and is extremely beneficial in alleviating chronic pain and muscle tension by breaking up scar tissue and physically breaking down muscle "knots" or adhesions, which are the bands of painful rigid tissue which can disrupt circulation and cause limited range of motion, inflammation, and pain. Potential side effects of this massage may include soreness, fatigue, and some general aching and bruising.
