Deep tissue massage

What is it? What are the benefits?



The Deep Tissue massage is a manual therapy usually performed without oil. The client can keep his underwear or not, he is lying on a massage table and covered with a sheet.

This type of massage is essentially therapeutic. The movements are performed very slowly and with a certain intensity in order to release the deepest tensions. Not to be confused with a Swedish high pressure massage, There is no slippage on the tissues. Rather, they are stretched to loosen the adhesions between the different layers of muscles and fascia, which are the cause of pain and mobility restrictions.

The fact of working without oil or with a little balm, combined with the frequent use of the forearms and elbows, allows a better muscular torsion and the attack of the deepest tissues. Everything is done with respect and listening to the tissues to stay within the limits of what the patient can receive.

The Deep Tissue massage is Ideal for athletes and people suffering from chronic pain related to work, to the practice of activities, to an injury or to bad postures.
