Deep Tissue Massage

Deep Tissue Massage is a type of massage therapy that focuses on realigning deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue. Helpful for chronic aches and pains and contracted areas, the movement is slower and the pressure is deeper and concentrated on areas of tension and pain in order to reach the sub-layer of muscles and the fascia (the connective tissue surrounding muscles). When there is chronic muscle tension or injury, there are usually adhesions (bands of painful, rigid tissue) in muscles, tendons, and ligaments. Adhesions can block circulation and cause pain, limited movement, and inflammation. Deep tissue massage works by physically breaking down these adhesions to relieve pain and restore normal movement. To do this, the massage therapist uses massage oil and often uses direct deep pressure. Muscles must be relaxed in order for the therapist to reach the deeper musculature. This takes time.

Trigger Point Therapy treats a hyper-irritable spots in the fascia and muscle fibers of skeletal muscle. They are associated with palpable nodules in taut bands of muscle fibers. Trigger point(s) can affect the muscle where the trigger point is located, and can also cause “referred pain” in tissues supplied by nerves (tension headaches). The trigger point is the most tender point in the band and there may be more than one. The therapist will locate and deactivate them using specific pressure and time. These points are often areas of chronic “holding patterns/postures” and you need to learn how to move in different ways to keep them from recurring.

 

**Please keep in mind that any tightness or pain was developed over time to get the muscle in that condition, and it will likely take more than one massage to get rid of it.
