Designed to remove severe tension, deep tissue massage is a technique used to relieve both muscles and connective tissue below the surface. It helps to improve range of motion and heal injuries below the surface.

Deeper bodywork is beneficial in releasing chronic muscle tension by focusing on the fibers and layers of muscle tissue, tendons and fascia (the protective layer surrounding bones, joints and muscles). The effect; removing tension, pain from muscle triggers, and realigning a multitude of layers. The point of what deep tissue work is all about lies within the adhesions, AKA knots of built-up and waste within our muscle tissues. An adhesion is a band(s) of painful, rigid tissue in muscles, tendons, and ligaments commonly referred to as a “knot”.

Adhesions can block circulation and cause pain, limited movement, and inflammation. Deep tissue therapy works by physically “breaking down” these adhesions. To do this, the Therapist often uses direct deep pressure or friction applied with varying methods across the fibers of the muscle/tissue(s).

There are many benefits to receiving massage as it can assist in improving conditions like carpal tunnel syndrome, shin splints, sprains and strains, tendonitis, frozen shoulder, tennis elbow, plantar fasciitis, sciatica, piriformis syndrome, and much more.

Designed to remove severe tension, deep tissue massage is a technique used to relieve both muscles and connective tissue below the surface. It helps to improve the range of motion and heal injuries below the surface. Deep tissue massage techniques are used to break up scar tissue and physically break down muscle "knots" or adhesions (bands of painful, rigid tissue) that can disrupt circulation and cause pain, limited range of motion, and inflammation.

At certain times during the massage, you may feel some discomfort or even some pain as the massage therapist works on areas where there are adhesions or scar tissue.

Pain isn't necessarily good, and it's not a sign that the massage will be effective. In fact, your body may tense up in response to pain, making it harder for the therapist to reach deeper muscles.

Your Therapist will discuss your goals and the area to be focused on.

Trigger point therapy focuses on the release of tension around specific nerve centers found throughout your body. It is great for relieving cramped and overused muscles.

A therapeutic technique using pressure to isolate and release tension in tight muscle tissues to relieve specific referral pains. soft tissue covering the muscles - can become stressed from overuse or torn through trauma. If the trauma or overuse is extensive, painful adhesions can form and prevent muscles from functioning properly. These adhesions are called trigger points.

Muscle stiffness, tenderness, and lack of mobility can occur with the formation of trigger points. In addition, these adhesions can cause extreme discomfort and trigger pain to radiate throughout the body.

To combat adhesions, massage therapists employ trigger point massage therapy. Also known as Neuromuscular Therapy, trigger point therapy relieves pain by applying pressure on particular myofascial points. Trained therapists use isolated pressure to manipulate the fascia. Clients seeking trigger point massage therapy are asked to practice deep breathing while identifying exact pain points.

Once located, practitioners then apply various degrees of pressure with their fingers, knuckles, or elbows. After release, the practitioner may perform stretches to realign the muscle’s fibers. There are numerous benefits to trigger point therapy including: an increased range of motion, decreased muscle stiffness, fewer headaches, improved flexibility and circulation, and fewer muscle spasms.

If clients seek trigger point therapy on a regular basis, they also benefit from better chronic pain and stress management long-term. Trigger point therapy is recommended for clients with chronic pain, arthritis, tendonitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, chronic migraines, athletic injuries, or bursitis.

Myofascial Release uses specific techniques to stretch and repair the connective issue between your muscles (fascia). It helps your body heal properly from injuries and can restore range of motion.

Myofascial Release is a massage therapy used to combat chronic myofascial pain. Unlike sporadic muscle soreness, myofascial pain is a syndrome causing constant pain to be sent throughout the body. Certain sensitive areas (trigger points) can be targeted in the muscles, connective tissue, and other areas of the body. The most common cause of myofascial pain is the repeated contraction of a particular muscle. This can be caused by numerous physical, mental, and even emotional stressors. The affected band of muscle will then restrict the sufferer’s movement and cause pain when stimulated.

At Mind Your Body our Licensed therapists are extensively trained in identifying and relieving the pain associated with myofascial pain. Depending on the client’s needs, Myofascial massage treatment may include DEEP TISSUE, THERAPEUTIC HERBAL HEAT, CUPPING, GUASHA, Topical CBD, TheraGun or Fire, and Ice Recovery.

The deep tissue massage lessens chronic pain by targeting knots, releasing tension, and applying deep pressure to the fascia - the protective layer surrounding joints, bones, and muscles. Skilled therapists stroke against the grain of the affected muscles while giving instruction to the client on deep breathing techniques to disperse the discomfort.
