Deep Tissue Massage
Deep tissue massage treatment focuses on the deep layers of tissue and muscle throughout the body. Using slow strokes to apply pressure, the massage focuses on areas of defined pain and tension. Knots in the muscles, tendons, and ligaments can be the result of injury or stress. Besides being painful, these knots can restrict blood circulation, hinder natural movement, and cause swelling.
Deep tissue massage improves blood flow. The increased blood flow reduces swelling and relieves pain. Deep tissue massage breaks down the knots to restore movement. A regular series of deep tissue massage treatments can also help to eradicate scar tissue.
There are many other benefits associated with deep tissue massage. It has been found to reduce tension and stress in the body, which in turn can lead to lower blood pressure. It can also improve flexibility and increase your range of motion. Deep tissue massage can also help muscle injuries.
For deep tissue massage, I use my fingertips, hands, knuckles, forearms, or elbows, to invigorate the muscles and ease tension knots. The slow, deliberate pace of this type of massage treatment ensures that every muscle receives the best possible care.
Deep breathing is encouraged throughout the session, especially when tense areas are being targeted. Deep breathing delivers an abundance of oxygen to the muscles, and can help alleviate discomfort.
At Star Avenue Massage, I understand that no two clients are the same. Because everyone is different and has different areas that need to be addressed, massage therapy plans are not one size fits all. As a certified, professional, massage therapist, I can design a personalized therapy plan based on your individual needs.
