Deep tissue massage releases chronic muscle tension though slow and deep strokes with direct pressure applied across the grain of the muscles. It may help to free trapped nerves, oxygenate poorly circulated areas and allows the spine and joints to relax into alignment. It reduces pain, relaxes muscles and aids them to stay flexible.
Deep tissue massage is aimed at everyone as most people develop some negative postural habits due to repetitive activities and postures (drivers, desk workers, computer operators). It can also bring a specific help to athletes, people with chronic joint or muscle injuries and those suffering from stress.
