WHAT IS THERAPEUTIC MASSAGE?
Therapeutic massage utilizes various techniques to manipulate soft tissue to bring about structural changes within the body in order to treat symptoms like pain, inflammation, and limited range of motion. Although therapeutic massages are very relaxing and rejuvenating, the intent of the massage is therapeutic in nature. A trigger point is a hyper tonic (overly contracted) area within a band of muscle tissues that may send pain signals to other parts of the body (referred) or may be isolated to one area (local). Trigger point massage utilizes focal point pressure and release techniques to alleviate pain.

The focus of deep tissue massage is to realigning deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue by breaking up myofascial (muscle fascia) adhesions that restrict proper posture and motion. Deep Tissue is highly beneficial for individuals suffering from chronic aches and pains from previous injuries.
