We employ deep tissue techniques for more focused massage work. Working a specific joint, muscle or muscle group, we can access deeper layers of the soft tissue. We start superficially and ease into the depth of the muscle to help improve movement.

This massage enhances athletic performance and recovery.

is located between the skin and the underlying structure of muscle and bone, it is a seamless web of that covers and connects the muscles, organs, and skeletal structures in our body. Muscle and fascia are united forming the myofascia system.

Injuries, stress, inflammation, trauma, and poor posture can cause restriction to fascia. Since fascia is an interconnected web, the restriction or tightness to fascia at a place, with time can spread to other places in the body like a pull in a sweater. The goal of myofascial release is to release fascia restriction and restore its tissue health.
