Massage Therapy promotes relaxation, relieves tension, and increases blood and oxygen flow to muscles for healing. It also promotes the release of serotonin, the feel-good neurotransmitter, and improves sleep, something often in short supply for those of us living with persistent pain.
Deep Tissue Massage is applied in a systematic way, concentrating on the deeper layers of the body’s soft tissues. It aims to release chronic patterns of tension in the body, through slow strokes and deep pressure on the contracted area(s). Deep tissue massage therapy is therapeutic as well as corrective, and done properly should cause neither excessive pain for the client nor strain for the therapist
