Deep Tissue Massage - Release Those Knots!!

Deep Tissue Massage - Release Those Knots!!Deep tissue massage is an intense form of massage done by applying a more intense pressure in slow moves, which when done professionally releases all the stress from deeper muscle layers and fascia. It is also a more focused type of massage, as the therapist works to release chronic muscle tension. Although a deep tissue massage doesn't hurt but it is definitely bit uncomfortable when compared to relaxation massage or Swedish massage. You can always ask the therapist to keep the pressure in control till the time you get used to or you are able to judge how much pressure you can comfortably bear.

Deep, gliding pressure is applied along the length of the muscle fibers using the elbow, forearm, knuckles, and thumbs and this pressure applied across the grain of a muscle helps to release adhesions , loosen the knots and realign tissue fibers. Therapists at Massage and Tea, Petco Park take complete care to help you relax and understand your threshold for this kind of massage. Deep tissues massage benefits weigh out all other routine massages.

If you are suffering from an blood clot condition or have had a recent surgery or medical procedure done, you should not get this massage done until it is permitted by your doctor.
