What is deep tissue massage?
Deep tissue massage is a massage technique integrating deep, slow strokes while applying sustained and varying amounts of pressure to target a client’s musculoskeletal system.
Deep tissue massage is very beneficial for clients who engage in high-intensity physical activities.
Three benefits of deep tissue massage include:
1. Health Benefits: Arthritis, sciatica, sports injury, tennis elbow, and more!
2. Stress Relief: Massage therapy lowers levels of stress hormones and promotes stimulation of ‘feel good’ hormones including oxytocin, dopamine, and serotonin.
3. Detoxification: Deep tissue massage promotes the flow of oxygenated blood which flushes out toxins from the body.
