Deep Tissue-

 

A technique of massage that focuses on “deliberate intention” and utilizes slow gliding movements which promote the unwinding of tissue.

The approach is focused, working slowly from superficial to deep fascia, recognizing areas of resistance, working (and waiting) on these specific areas before moving on. The technique takes time and the patience of both the client and therapist.

The results of staying and working on an area or moving on will depend on several factors such as:

  • Tissue Response

  • Client's Pain-Threshold

  • Therapist's Comfort Level

  • Time Available

Deep Pressure-

Exactly how it sounds...this is a Swedish (therapeutic touch) massage based on the flow of using forearms, elbows, thumbs, knuckles, fists and more pressure.
