Deep Tissue Massage
A deep tissue massage requires deep pressure to help release chronic muscle tension. This massage focuses on the deepest layers of muscle tissues, tendons, and fascia. This massage is commonly used to target pain in the neck, upper back, lower back, legs, and shoulders. The goal is to break up scar tissue and muscle knots that can cause pain, limited range of motion, and inflammation for a happier and more comfortable you.
Swedish massage therapy is performed to relax the entire body. This is done by rubbing the muscles with long, gliding strokes in the direction of blood returning to the heart. Swedish massage can also increase the level of oxygen in the blood, decrease muscle toxins, improve circulation and flexibility, and ease tension.
Therapeutic massage focuses on a patient’s specific trouble area. Your masseuse will first assess your condition and propose a treatment plan to help relieve your discomfort. The massage therapy will then be performed, and your therapist will review the results. It may be recommended that you receive additional sessions to help treat your trouble area.
Following your massage, you will feel refreshed and relaxed for a better sense of well-being. Be sure to drink water following treatment to help the body flush out toxins.
