Deep Tissue Massage
Deep tissue massage is a massage technique that’s mainly used to treat musculoskeletal issues, such as strains and sports injuries. It involves applying sustained pressure using slow, deep strokes to target the inner layers of your muscles and connective tissues. This helps to break up scar tissue that forms following an injury and reduce tension in muscle and tissue. It may also promote faster healing by increasing blood flow and reducing inflammation.
Sports massage uses a wide variety of techniques and may include effleurage (stroking), petrissage (kneading), compression, friction, tapotement (rhythmic striking), vibration, gliding, stretching, percussion, deep tissue, myofascial and trigger point release.
Myofascial Cupping combines massage and stretching techniques with the use of pressurized cups. Skin and myofascial tissue is suctioned into the cups, allowing for dermofascial and myofascial release, increased circulation and nutrient supply to the tissues. Myofascial Cupping can help reduce scar tissue, improve mobility and reduce pain.
