DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE

60 MINUTES $110      90 MINUTES $149

 recommended for those seeking relief of chronic pain

Deep tissue massage addresses chronic aches and pain in contracted areas such as a stiff neck and upper back, low back pain, leg muscle tightness, and sore shoulders. At the beginning of the massage, lighter pressure is generally applied to warm up and prep the muscles. Specific techniques are then applied focusing pressure on deep layers of the muscles, tendons, and fascia (the connective tissue surrounding muscles).  Your therapist will apply firm pressure and slow strokes to reach deeper layers of muscle and fascia (the connective tissue surrounding muscles). Deep tissue massage addresses chronic aches and pain and contracted areas such as a stiff neck and upper back, low back pain, leg muscle tightness, and sore shoulders. 

 

How To Prepare For Your Deep Tissue Massage

  • Drink plenty of water before and after your massage

  • Avoid any pain killers 6-8 hours before your massage

  • Come in feeling comfortable – eat healthfully on the day of your appointment, avoid large meals

  • Arrive ten minutes early, so you have time to relax and discuss with your independent professional massage therapist any goals you have for the session (for example, greater flexibility, less tension, headache relief) and specify areas you’d like to focus on.

  • Let your therapist know about any medical conditions, or anything you feel is important to the session, and feel free to ask questions.

  • Speak up if you would like more pressure or if you would like less pressure.
