What is Therapeutic Massage?

Therapeutic Massage, also known as Deep Tissue Massage, is the skillful combination of massage styles including Trigger Point, Myofascial, Neuromuscular Release, Range of Motion, Stretching, and Relaxation Massage. This most-requested technique promotes recovery from injury or surgery, relieves chronic pain, eases strain caused by repetitive movements experienced at work or play, and helps active individuals maintain performance and endurance.

Your therapeutic massage session involves the skilled manipulation of your body’s soft tissues including muscles, tendons, fascia and other connective tissues. Your therapist uses in-depth knowledge of human anatomy and the intention and goals of the client rather than the heavy-handed pressure some associate with this technique. Levels of pressure likely change though the session as your therapist assesses the integrity of the muscles and how they react. Your therapist encourages feedback on pressure and technique as pain is counterproductive to our objective of muscle and nervous system relaxation. Your skilled therapist adapts this technique to make it comfortable for nearly anyone.
