Deep Tissue Massage Lake Stevens
Deep Tissue Massage is a form of bodywork that aims to relieve tension in the deeper layers of tissue in the body. Deep Tissue Massage is a highly effective method for releasing chronic stress areas due to misalignment, repetitive motions, and past lingering injuries. It is especially recommended for stiff necks, low back tightness, sore shoulders and hips. With chronic muscle tension, you will usually find adhesions (painful rigid knots) in your muscles. Adhesions, can cause pain, inflammation, limited movement and block your circulation. Deep Tissue Massage helps to work these out.
Due to the nature of Deep Tissue work, open communication during the session is crucial to make sure you don't get too uncomfortable with the pressure being applied. I tell my clients we are looking for a "hurt so good feeling" , but if it crosses that fine line, we need to ease up on the pressure a bit!
Keep in mind that soreness is is pretty common after the treatment, and that plenty of water should be ingested to aid with the flushing and removal of toxins that will have been released from the deeper tissues during the session.
