The massage therapist applies compression or deep pressure to spammed or knotted muscles, fibrous adhesions and/or trigger points in order to bring about a more profound state of relaxation.
This technique may include the use of specific kneading strokes and smoothing and gliding strokes, which are administered with progressively increasing degrees of pressure, while cautiously monitoring the client’s verbal feedback and body’s reflex responses.
This technique requires patiently lengthening soft tissue layer by layer to release holding patterns that are preventing a client from relaxing.
The emphasis for each deep tissue session is to alter muscle tightness and restriction in order to decrease tension.
Deep strokes are done mindfully with creation and confidence.
Release chronically spammed areas.
The depth and quality of muscle release varies for each client each session and effects are usually longer lasting than those of Swedish Massage.
