Deep Tissue Massage
Receiving a deep tissue relaxation massage can help to relieve aches and pains from the muscles, while allowing the nervous system to fall into a deep state of relaxation.
This deep state of relaxation activates the parasympathetic nervous system, which when active, stimulates your digestive processes, as well as your body’s natural ability to heal and repair tissue.
The use of firmer pressure and slower strokes helps to reach deeper layers of muscle and fascia (the connective tissue surrounding the muscles and bones). The pressure doesn’t have to be uncomfortable and painful to reach the deeper tissues, which can be a common mis-perception of deep tissue massage.
