Deep tissue DOES NOT mean pain, discomfort, or tears...
The pressure of your massage will be as light or as heavy as you prefer. Always.
Properly done "deep tissue massage" is done at an appropriate pressure that is client-specific. Each person is different in the amount of pressure that is right for them. The pressure should feel like it is "getting the job done" without being overly intense.
Deep tissue is a relaxing, rejuvenating and refreshing. With deep tissue, we will slowly work down to the underlying muscle and fascia. This type of massage is great for getting rid of knots and difficult, persistent tensions.
The benefits of deep tissue massage include:
- Relieves stress from both mind and body
- Overall improvement to your health and wellness
- Structural balance and muscular pain relief
- Structural bodywork
- Swedish (light pressure) massage
- Trigger point therapy
- Myofascial release
- Flushing - helps with drainage
We will discuss your current needs and determine the massage treatments that are best for you.
I saw Travis for the first time today after I woke up with back pain last week. He was able to relieve my pain along with soreness I have had for years! Travis worked through my entire back, working on several layers of tension. I feel like I have a brand new back! It was also really wonderful that he was able to come to my apartment on such short notice. Thank you Travis!" - Andie
