Deep Tissue Massage

Massage is the manipulation of superficial and deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue using various techniques, to enhance function, aid in the healing process, decrease muscle reflex activity, inhibit motor-neuron excitability to promote well-being.

Deep Tissue massage uses slow strokes and deep pressure to work on tight areas to release specific muscle tension and restore flexibility. Deep Tissue massage is generally slower than Swedish, and goes deeper into the muscle and connective tissue to release chronic tension which might have developed from injury or overuse.

Myofascial Release is a form of soft tissue therapy used to treat pain, dysfunction and restricted motion. The release of myofascial tissues is accomplished by relaxing contracted muscles, increasing circulation and lymphatic drainage, and stimulating the stretch reflex of muscles and overlying fascia. 

Trigger Point massage is a technique used to release painful areas in the muscle tissue (trigger points) that refer pain to other parts of the body. It can reduce pain, increase movement and allow the muscles to return to their normal resting length. This technique is usually used together with myofascial release.
