Deep tissue massage focuses on the different layers of tissue (muscle, tendons and fascia), working to relax, lengthen, and release strain patterns within them, so that the body’s posture can realign itself.
Physical and emotional traumas can tighten and stiffen these tissues. When this happens, the body moves out of a state of natural alignment and loses its flexibility and gravitational balance.
Working deeply does not necessarily mean applying lots of pressure. A light touch can also effect the body/mind very deeply. The techniques used in deep tissue massage are also applied more slowly; this is to avoid causing the recipient any pain when working deeply into the muscle and connective tissue as well as allowing the nervous system to integrate the work.
A treatment does not usually involve working on the whole body, but focuses on particular areas of the body which are presenting patterns of strain. So the whole treatment might focus on the legs and pelvis, shoulder girdle or neck, depending on where the strain patterns are evident. Releasing these areas of strain will have effects throughout the body.
