Massage therapists perform deep tissue massage by concentrating on the deeper layers of the body’s soft tissue to release persistent pain and tension patterns. Slow and methodical strokes are applied to the top layers of affected areas in order to penetrate to deeper muscle layers and achieve lasting relief from chronic pain for our Apple Valley clients.
When to Consider a Deep Tissue Treatment
Conditions that require deep tissue massage often derive from work related posture problems, sports injuries, or problems that have developed from ongoing stress and tension resulting in persistent muscle pain that commonly occurs in the neck , lower back, shoulders, arms and legs.
Benefits of this Massage Technique Include:
Release of tension and tightened muscles in affected areas
Chronic pain relief
Improved flexibility and mobility
Improved posture and physical performance
Tailor-Made Massage Treatment Plans
Deep Tissue Massage can be used in conjunction with other techniques. Our licensed practitioners work closely with clients to establish an effective treatment plan focused on specific problem areas.
A Good Kind of Pain
During a session of deep tissue massage, some clients may experience a level of tenderness that can be termed a “feel good” type of discomfort. This sensation signifies the initial and natural untightening of a muscle or muscle group. Massage therapists always remain aware of a client’s comfort during treatment.
