Deep Tissue Massage
Deep Tissue Massage is a form of bodywork that aims to relieve tension in the deeper layers of tissue in the body. Deep Tissue Massage is a highly effective method for releasing chronic stress areas due to misalignment, repetitive motions, and past lingering injuries. Due to the nature of the deep tissue work, open communication during the session is crucial to make sure you don’t get too uncomfortable. Keep in mind that soreness is pretty common after the treatment, and that plenty of water should be ingested to aid with the flushing and removal of toxins that will have been released from the deep tissue during the session. Throughout the massage Steve concentrates on working the muscles to achieve better range of motion within the muscle structure ultimately, promoting better mobility.
Steve listens to you, to understand what kind of discomfort you are experiencing, what you think causes, aggravates, and eases your discomfort. He wants to know
about previous injuries, surgeries, and what you do all day. From this, he will determine the best approach for you – and will revise that throughout the massage,
depending on what he finds while working with you. How deep he works depends upon your preference, current health, presence or absence of injuries, and condition
of your soft tissues. Typically, Steve warms up the problem area by using specific massage strokes. In some instances, he may use cooling gels.
Best for: Chronically tight or painful muscles, repetitive strain, improved posture and movement, or recovery from injury.
