 Deep Tissue Massage

                Deep tissue Massage focuses on realigning deeper layers of muscles and connective tissues.  The movement is slower and the pressure is deeper and concentrated on areas of tension and pain. 

                When there is chronic muscle tension or injury, there are usually adhesions (bands of painful, rigid tissue) in muscles, tendons, and ligaments.  Adhesions can block circulation and cause pain, limited movement, and inflammation.  Deep Tissue massage works by physically breaking down these adhesions to relieve pain and restore normal movement.
