Massage: Deep Muscle Therapy

Deep muscle therapy is performed in order to help release myofascial restrictions within the body. The theory behind this type of massage is that when chronic knots (also referred to as adhesions) exist within the deep muscle tissues, the body's natural balance is thrown out. Until the natural balance is restored, injured fiberous tissues can cause chronic joint and muscle pain, poor posture and coordination, as well as other health ailments.

Deep muscle therapy aims to relieve the chronic tension throughout the muscles and fiberous tissues within the body. It's known to greatly increase flexibility and range of motion, and it's also known to greatly improve posture and restore the body's natural harmony.

Deep muscle therapy promotes the release of hazardous toxins in the body, and also encourages the body to repair any damaged cells. Deep muscle therapy has been known to help heal minor muscle strains and connective tissue injuries, in addition to helping soothe more serious muscle conditions - such as Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinsons disease and even to lessen the symptoms associated with Muscular Dystrophy.

Although the techniques used by deep muscle therapy are very similar to Swedish massage, the strokes are applied with more pressure in order to stimulate the deeper muscles and surrounding tissues. You will only be massaged as deeply as you are comfortable with.
