If you suffer from chronic muscle tension or an old injury, it is likely that a rigid tissue has formed in your muscles or ligaments which are called Adhesions. By decreasing circulation and causing inflammation, Adhesions are often the root cause of most muscular pain.
Neck, upper back, shoulders and legs are all areas of the body prone to chronic muscle tension, but can all be relived by use of a massage technique known as Deep Tissue Massage.
Reaching deep into the muscles and breaking down the Adhesions, the Deep Tissue Massage therapy realigns deeper muscles and frees them from the Adhesions enabling the blood to circulate normally again and relieving pain.
The techniques used in Deep Tissue Massage therapy are very similar to regular massage techniques, except they concentrate more on the painful region, reaching deep into the muscles with slow, but firm movements.
