Deep Tissue Massage: Is deep tissue massage the right choice for your health goals? Sitting for long hours at a computer, old injuries, sports injuries, or just the inevitable passage of time can result in chronic soft tissue issues that cause ongoing pain and discomfort.
A therapeutic massage can help relieve ongoing muscle spasms and fascial constrictions to get you back to a state of balance and health. Deep tissue massage can help alleviate low back pain, upper back pain in the shoulder and neck area, shoulder and neck pain due to head-forward posture, as well as hip tightness and pelvic pain.
Utilizing techniques such as Deep Tissue Massage, Trigger Point, and Myofascial Release therapies, experienced massage therapist Emma will work with you to design a massage that best suits your needs. If you are currently under the care of a physician for an issue, please be sure to ask for consent before scheduling a therapeutic massage. Deep tissue massage is the basis for sports massage and massage for chronic or acute pain but is not used in relaxation massage or prenatal massage sessions.
Best results are seen after you and Emma design a plan of posture corrections, stretching, and regular massage sessions. Every body is different but at least once a month is recommended for optimal relief from chronic pain.
