Deep Tissue Massage
What Is Deep Tissue Massage?
Deep tissue massage is a muscle-specific, therapeutic treatment that engages deeper layers of tissue using slow, direct pressure. While similar to Swedish massage in strokes and movement, the focus is on the deepest layers of muscle tissue, tendons and fascia (the protective layer surrounding muscles, bones and joints).
Benefits of Deep Tissue Massage
The deeper pressure is beneficial in releasing chronic muscle tension and can even reduce your blood pressure and heart rate. Recent studies have shown that deep tissue massage can also reduce stress hormone levels while boosting mood and relaxation by triggering the release of oxytocin and serotonin.
