When muscles are tight, oxygen and nutrients are blocked, leading to inflammation, and a build up of toxins in the tissue. Deep tissue massage in Southington focuses on the deeper layers of muscle tissue in order to release tight muscles and lengthen overly constricted muscle fibers. Deep tissue work benefits your body by reducing muscle tightness, improving circulation, reducing pain and tension, and providing deep relaxation to relieve stress and provide relief. Prior to your massage, your therapist
will discuss areas of tension you would like to focus on, amount of desired pressure, and any pertinent or limiting health conditions in order to tailor the massage to your individualized needs. Many conditions can be greatly improved by deep tissue work including chronic back pain, headaches, neck pain, shoulder pain, plantar fasciitis and elbow tendonitis.
