What is Deep Tissue Massage?

Deep tissue massage refers to massage styles that are directed toward the deeper tissue structures of the muscle and fascia. Some of the techniques focus just on the physiological release of tension or bonds in the tissues, while others use bodywork as a means of psychological release.

In most deep tissue massage techniques the aim is to affect the various layers of fascia that support muscle tissues and loosen bonds between the layers of connective tissues. The muscles must be relaxed in order to effectively perform deep tissue massage.

It helps with chronic muscular pain and injury; rehabilitation, and reduces inflammation-related pain caused by arthritis and tendonitis.

Generally integrated with other massage techniques. Some deep tissue massage techniques are named after the person who developed or specialized them face muscles prevent the practitioner from reaching deeper musculature.

Structural Integration

Structural integration attempts to bring the physical structure of the body into alignment around a central axis. This is done by manipulating the fascia of the structural muscles. After structural integration sessions, both physical and psychological balance are often experienced by the client.

Rolfing

Rolfing is a deep connective tissue massage that in a normal healthy body the spine and body segments are correctly aligned, allowing the organs to function properly. Incorrect body alignment can also cause tension in muscles and connective tissues that may interfere with normal functioning of internal organs.

The goal of Rolfing treatments is to reshape the body’s physical posture and to realign the muscular and connective tissue.
