Massage Therapy

Deep Tissue Massage

Deep tissue massage treatment is a sort of therapy that concentrates on the deep levels of muscle in the body, as the name implies. It works by concentrating the pressure far deeper than traditional massage treatment by employing slow and forceful massage strokes. It helps to relieve inflammation by boosting blood flow, and breaking down adhesion's.

It’s especially helpful for people who have a chronic muscular problem or are trying to recover from an injury. It’s a popular sports massage method that can help you enhance your performance.

Soft Tissue Massage

Soft tissue massage is a method that is less invasive than deep tissue massage, as you might expect. Soft tissue massage, rather than relying on slow, pressured motions to influence the deep layers, works with a variety of depths, pressures, and durations.

The therapist will work on your muscles, tendons, and ligaments as a massage treatment, and in most ways is quite comparable to deep tissue massage techniques.

It’s a good way to relax muscles, release endorphins, relieve muscle tension, and promote blood circulation.
