Deep Tissue Massage performed by a trained licensed "Skillful" massage therapist, utilizes focused applied pressure techniques for various conditions allowing the body’s return to normal health after injury or with muscular-skeletal disorders. It is used to treat chronic muscular-skeletal imbalances, strains, sprains, broken bones, bruising or any injury where the skin is intact. Deep tissue massage removes blockages, damaged cells, scar tissue and adhesions left after injury, speeds up recovery and encourages more complete healing. Deep Tissue Massage is also used for conditions created by lifestyle, for example: Repetitive strain injury and Back pain.
