Deep tissue massage in Southington, CT focuses on the deep layers of muscle and fascia. Fascia is the sheet of connective tissue, primarily collagen, beneath the skin that attaches, stabilizes, encloses, and separates muscles and internal organs. The goal is to lengthen muscle fibers that have become overly restricted which allows for improved postural issues, reduced muscle tension, the break up of scar tissue, and reduction in pain and inflammation. Techniques such as cross fiber techniques, pin and move techniques, trigger point work, and stretching are used to promote greater range of motion. The therapist ensures that there is good communication during your deep tissue massage to be sure that the massage pressure is within your comfort level.
