Deep Tissue Massage
Caring Palms Massage and Reiki
Deep Tissue massage is used specifically to correct problems in the body. These problems can be pulled muscles, stiff necks, sore backs, sciatica, etc. Often more complex problems can be treated with massage, and Reiki energy can be added to aid in healing.
When Deep Tissue massage is used, it is usually to move muscles and work out knots at a lower level than normal (sometimes very deeply). These movements involve spreading and extending, and friction to get problems to ease up or go away completely. Usually Deep Tissue is not performed on its own, but as a part of Swedish or some other style of bodywork. The body's muscles need to have an introduction to the massage so that when deep work is used, the muscles react positively to the treatment. One also needs to have the nice feeling of regular massage movements to balance deep work done so that one walks away feeling good.
