Deep Tissue Massage

If you would like to improve your posture, address chronic tensions, or simply prefer a deeper touch, this treatment is for you. Inspired by the principles of Structural Integration, Deep Tissue Massage works with underlying connective tissue structures that contribute to painful posture patterns.

Deep Tissue is done without the use of oils so as to work more deeply in the connective tissues, called fascia. Specific, slow movements are designed to allow the tissue to respond optimally. Fascia is plastic, rather than elastic like muscle fibers, meaning that with appropriate pressure, regular treatment, and postural awareness, change in the fascia is possible.

Deep Tissue can be extremely relaxing and, contrary to popular belief, does not need to be painful. Your unique treatment will include an in-depth consultation, Joint Release, and some Swedish relaxation massage for integration. Please note that for acute concerns, a referral to a more specialized healthcare provider may be appropriate.
