Deep tissue massage uses a variety of techniques to reach deep layers of muscle and fascia (the connective tissue surrounding muscles). If you have chronic aches and pains and areas of tight muscles such as in the neck, shoulders or back, a deep tissue massage is an excellent choice. Our RMTs can physically break down adhesions that causes pain, inflammation, disruptions in circulation and reductions in range of motion. A deep tissue massage is not just a relaxation massage with deeper pressure. In a deep tissue massage you may expect joint work, stretching, fascial releasing, static compression and deep pressure.
