Deep Tissue Massage uses deep finger pressure and slow, measured strokes to realign the deepest layers of muscle and fascia, quickly and effectively relieving stubborn stiffness and pain. Therapists use their hands and muscle-relaxing oils to physically break down bands of adhesions that form deep in the muscle. This process is not entirely pain-free, but soreness generally subsides within 24 hours.
Encompassing a wide range of techniques, Sports Massage is a preventive therapy that addresses a variety of issues, including muscle tone, balance, symmetry, and range of motion. Targeted therapies can reduce or relieve pain, release tension, restore range of motion, and promote general muscle health. The techniques used usually combine both stretching and massaging.
