Deep Tissue Massage
Deep Tissue Massage is a common choice for those wanting a massage with "stronger" pressure. This modality reduces soreness and pain by breaking up adhesions and “knots” in specific areas while still working on your whole body. Using gliding and kneading strokes with lotions or oils, pressure is applied with elbows, forearms, knuckles, palms, and fingers. Combining the stress relieving, deep pressure with oils and lotions can promote relaxation and calm ones mind, inducing a meditative-like state.
Depending on ones needs and goals, various types of stretching may be included in a Deep Tissue Massage.
