Deep Tissue Massage using the techniques of deep tissue massage helps to access the deeper layers of muscle in the body. Firm, steady pressure while identifying knots and other constricted or isolated area of tension assist in releasing the soreness of the muscle, bringing back proper blood flow and circulation and guides in repairing the tight tissues. Either sudden trauma or chronically shortened muscles and fascia (the muscles protective covering) can pull your joints out of alignment. If this is not addressed, you may have trouble healing. By stretching, lengthening and releasing shortened muscles and fascia, massage can help your body return to normal alignment.
