Deep-Tissue Massage

 

is a form of massage that manipulates the deeper layers of muscles, tendons and ligaments. The holistic therapist focuses on releasing the deep fascia which surrounds muscles and organs. It helps to break up knots of muscles, nodules, tender muscles, trapped nerves and allows new oxygen and nutrients into the muscle.

Various techniques involve slow and deep pressure to release muscle tension. Friction is applied accross the band of muscle and stretching of the skin to release tension. Knuckles, elbows and forearms are used in the massage. Trigger point therapy will be applied if areas of myofascial tissue are contracted. 

Trigger points can cause many common conditions and ailments eg; pain in the joints, headaches, problems with shoulders, hips, hands and arms etc.
