BENEFITS OF DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE

- Reduces Aches and Pain – Deep tissue massage can break up scar tissue and physically break down adhesions which are bands of painful, rigid tissue better known as knots.
- Increases Range Of Motion – Having good range of motion is important for both muscle and joint health. Deep Tissue Massage can tame angry muscles that restrict movement around a joint. Encouraging joints to produce more synovial fluid for smooth joint articulation.
- Rehabs Old Injuries – Still feeling the pangs of an old injury? Deep Tissue Massage can help with chronic or recurring conditions such as tendonitis, lower back pain, migraine/tension headaches, hip/knee/shoulder trauma, and any other injury that occurs in soft tissue structures.
