After countless hours of doing work in front of a computer screen, intense new workouts, or even sleeping wrong, our bodies begin to ache. After a while, doing the occasional self-shoulder rub just doesn’t cut it. Eventually, it starts to feel like our tightness and pain just won’t go away. That is your body asking to try a deep tissue massage.

The deep tissue massage uses warm and unscented oils or lotion. Therapists apply deep pressure using long and slow strokes. They use their fingers to find pressure points, as well as hands and elbows to get in between the muscle and tissue. The primary focus is on the back, neck, and shoulders. However, they also massage arms, hands, legs, and feet. 

The massage helps with pain and tension by our trained therapists working through the layers of muscle and finding the trouble areas. With their extensive knowledge of the body, they can safely attack tight spots, leaving the customer with more mobility and less pain. They reach deeper layers of muscle that other types of massages don’t do, as other ones usually only target the surface level of muscle. Another way the massage helps is by reducing swelling and improving circulation. This is especially beneficial to those recovering from a sports injury or having an illness that causes fluid buildup. Our therapists have helped customers who suffer from conditions such as sciatica and plantar fasciitis by relieving their pain during massages. Even if you don’t have an injury or illness, you could still benefit from this massage as it helps relieve stress and anxiety. Our lifestyles can result in neglecting our mental and physical needs. Sleep is one of the most important and most commonly sacrificed needs.

Sleep deprivation has significant long and short-term consequences. When we sleep our bodies heal, without that vital time of relaxation problems occur. One of the easiest, fastest, and lowest-risk strategies to improve your sleep schedule is incorporating more massages into your monthly or weekly routine!
