When there is chronic muscle tension or injury, there are usually adhesions (bands of painful, rigid tissue) in muscles, tendons, and ligaments. Adhesions can block circulation and cause pain, limited movement, and inflammation. Deep tissue massage in Etobicoke works by physically breaking down these adhesions to relieve pain and restore normal movement. To do this, the massage therapist uses massage oil and often uses direct deep pressure. Muscles must be relaxed in order for the therapist to reach the deeper musculature.
Technique we use
During the massage session, the therapist uses his or her hands, elbows, fingertips, knuckles or forearms to stimulate the muscles and reduce adhesions. The slower pace of this type of massage means that every muscle receives the optimal level of care. Guests may be asked to breathe deeply throughout the session, especially when tense areas are being targeted. Deep breathing supplies the muscles with plenty of oxygen and can ease discomfort
