Deep tissue Massage

Deep tissue massage is designed to relieve severe tension in
the muscle and the connective tissue or fascia. This type of massage focuses on the
muscles located below the superficial layer of muscle and tissue. Deep tissue massage
is often recommended for individuals who experience consistent pain, or are involved in
heavy physical activity (such as athletes), and patients who have sustained physical
injury.  It is not uncommon for receivers of deep tissue massage to be sore for a day or
two after this type of treatment and should drink plenty of water to help with recovery.

Indications:  Great for athletes because it can detox  stressed muscles and increase ROM.  Good for anyone with repetitive stress injuries or old injuries that have accumulated scar tissue.
