Deep connective tissue massage is a form of intense massage that aims to release myofascial (connective tissue) restrictions in the body, and to break up any restrictive scar tissue. It has also been known to help relieve chronic tension, to increase the body’s range of motion, to improve posture and to enhance the natural harmony of the entire body and mind.
Although having a deep connective tissue massage shouldn’t cause you any pain, it’s often less relaxing and less comfortable than a traditional Swedish massage. Most practitioners ask that their clients tell them immediately if the stroke pressure is too intense. When a therapist locates a chronic knot (also referred to as an adhesion), they will often recommend that a client adapt a total lifestyle change – which may include exercises to help improve posture, balance, movement, and relaxation. These steps are complementary to your weekly deep connective tissue massage sessions.
