Deep Tissue Massage
A common misconception about deep tissue massage is that it is simple a massage where the therapist pushes really hard. While it typically does involve more pressure and deeper strokes that is not what makes this technique “deep tissue”. The name actually implies the ability to affect the function, health and alignment of muscles, ligaments and tendons. At the hands of a skilled therapist, deep tissue massage can make a significant impact on your health, movement and quality of life.
