Therapeutic Massage

 

Deep Tissue Massage

 

Deep Tissue Massage uses firm pressure in order to reach deeper layers of muscle tissue.

 

It is used to break up scar tissue, muscle knots or adhesions that can interrupt blood circulation, cause pain and limit movement.

 

Deep Tissue Massage uses a slower, deeper technique than relaxation massage.

 

Conditions that require Deep Tissue Massage...

 

  • Recovering from an injury

  • Lower back pain

  • Repetitive strain injury

  • Muscle tension

  • Limited mobility

  • Breaking down scar tissue

 

Trigger Point Therapy

 

I usually incorporate Trigger Point techniques into a Deep Tissue Massage.

What are Trigger Points?

 

A Trigger Point is a tight sensitive area that feels like a pea buried deep in the muscle. Trigger Points create referred pain, meaning the cause of the problem is not always where you feel the pain. They affect the muscle by keeping it both tight and weak.

 

In Trigger Point Therapy either static or deep slow massage strokes are applied over the effected area. Trigger Points are very persistent and make their presence felt till eliminated. In general 2-3 treatments are usually required.

How do you get Trigger Points?

 

When muscles are stressed or injured they often  form Trigger Points like contracted  knots. that cause pain and tightness.

Other benefits of Trigger Point Therapy...

 

  • Increased movement

  • Reduction of pain

  • Headache relief

  • Lengthening and strengthening of the muscle
