The Deep Tissue
This service is a more client-tailored massage aimed at attacking their problem areas. Deep Tissue massage targets the deeper layers of muscles and connective tissues using moderate to high intensity at the discretion of the client***. Based on the pre-session interview, we will assess the state of the problem area with respect to tonicity (muscle tightness) and range of motion. From the assessment, we will apply the appropriate techniques for maximum effectiveness. This session will help remove restrictions that can cause pain and limit mobility.
