This type of treatment focuses on realigning deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue. It is especially helpful for chronic aches and pains and spastic areas seen in stiff neck, upper and lower back pain, leg muscle tightness and sore shoulders. Some of the same strokes seen in classic massage therapy are used , but the movement and pressure are slower and deeper, and concentrated in the areas of tension and pain, in order to reach the deeper layers of muscles and the fascia ( the connective tissue surrounding the muscles). This type of treatment may use Swedish massage techniques, such as trigger point therapy, assisted stretching, Active Release Technique, joint manipulation as well as deep tissue petrissage to release muscles and relieve pain.
