How does deep tissue massage work? 

When there is chronic muscle tension or injury, there are usually adhesion's (bands of painful, rigid tissue) in muscles, tendons, and ligaments. 
 
Adhesion's can block circulation and cause pain, limited movement, and inflammation. 
 
Deep tissue massage works by physically breaking down these Adhesion's to relieve pain and restore normal movement. To do this, the massage therapist often uses direct deep pressure or friction applied across the grain of the muscles. 
 

Will deep tissue massage hurt? 

Most people find there is usually some discomfort . At some point during the deep tissue massage. 
 
It is important to communicate with the massage therapist throughout the treatment, and let the therapist know , if any soreness or pain you experience is outside your comfort range. 
 
You will usually experience stiffness and soreness a few days after a deep tissue massage, but this should subside within a few days. The massage therapist may recommend applying ice to the area after the massage.

What can I expect during my visit?
