Deep Tissue Massage
A slower massage, reaching deep muscles that may be causing pain, tension, restriction of movement or other problems. Expect slow, consistent pressure and focused work on problem areas. At times, the therapist may hold still on a muscle for 30-60 seconds to allow a stubborn area to relax fully.
Deep tissue massage should not be overly painful nor leave you sore for days after. A good hurt is highly beneficial but if the pain of the massage causes you to yell out or stop breathing that means you need to let your therapist know.
