Deep Tissue & Trigger Point Massage
Deep muscle massage will flush toxins from your body and enhance your immune system. Working a specific joint, muscle or muscle group, your therapist can access deeper layers of the soft tissue. Because each body experiences pressure differently, your therapist will start superficially and ease into the depth of the muscle slowly to allow more movement. The direct pressure applied by your therapist will relieve tension immediately.
