Deep Tissue Massage
Deep tissue massage specifically targets fascial tissue between muscles layers, all the way to the periosteum (bone covering). This technique is effective for releasing muscle tension which patients may experience as a result of stress or injury. Deep tissue massage focuses on treatment of the deepest layers of muscle tissue, tendons and fascia, and helps to decrease inflammation, pain, stiffness, redness and swelling.
