“In the midst of movement
keep stillness inside of you.”
~ Deepak Chopra
Unlike Classic (Swedish) Massage therapy, which is used for relaxation, Deep Tissue Massage focuses on a specific problem. This technique allows for firm pressure to be applied to localized areas, however pain is Not a result. Deep tissue massage is quite therapeutic especially for Chronic pain, Limited mobility, Recovery from injuries (e.g. whiplash, falls, sports injury), Repetitive strain injury, such as carpal tunnel syndrome, Postural problems, Ostearthritis pain, Fibromyalgia, Muscle tension or spasms, and more.
“Deep tissue massage is best for giving attention to certain painful, stiff "trouble spots" in your body. The massage therapist uses slow, deliberate strokes that focus pressure on layers of muscles, tendons, or other tissues deep under your skin. Though less rhythmic than other types of massage, deep tissue massage can be quite therapeutic -- relieving chronic patterns of tension and helping with muscle injuries, such as back sprain.” www.webMD.com
