Deep tissue massage is a whole-body technique offered at Neurotensegrity Wellness Center. Lotion is often used with this technique. Deep tissue massage is a massage technique that is similar to Swedish massage, but more pressure is applied to the areas being worked on. Massage strokes used can include slow, direct pressure, and friction. The purpose of this massage technique is to target deeper muscles and connective tissue to relieve chronic aches and tense muscles. Like Swedish massage, this technique can also lead to relaxation and increase circulation. If you prefer a massage with firm pressure, then this may be the massage for you.
