DEEP TISSUE/TRIGGER POINT MASSAGE
Deep tissue/trigger point work requires a lot of patience, communication and breathing. It is a focus on the neck, shoulders, back, and the glutes.
**NOT A FULL BODY MASSAGE**
WHAT IS IT?
These two modalities go hand-in-hand and work together. Deep tissue focuses on releasing the underlying muscles closest to the skeleton and organs rather than the superficial muscles that are easily visible with the naked eye. Although it is often believed to be painful, when deep tissue work is done properly, it does not have to be painful but may have some discomfort.
Trigger points are what people consider “knots.” It can be active, causing tenderness when pressure is applied that radiates pain, numbness, and/or tingling in other areas of the body. On the other hand, it can be latent where it does not cause any pain when pressed on.
These points are muscle tissues that have become fibrous, lacking blood supply and oxygen along with being a bundle of life-long stress and toxins within the muscle. Trigger points can often mimic diseases by pressing on nerves that come out of the spine and can be misdiagnosed for something else causing unnecessary treatments or surgeries.
