Deep Tissue Massage:
Healing deep-seated muscle pain

Deep tissue massage, myofascial release therapy, and trigger point therapy penetrate to connective tissue, muscles, and fascia.

Many clients have a more intense experience with these types of massage, but also feel that it is more beneficial, because it corrects long-term problems, relaxes the body, and helps to prevent injury.

During a deep tissue massage, myofascial release therapy, or trigger point therapy, Liza may use elbows and fingers for deep, penetrating work in the muscle. These massages tend to be very slow, and Liza uses long, flowing strokes to ease in and out of the muscle. Going in too quickly can cause the muscle to tense up — not a desired reaction. Liza may also maintain firm pressure at trouble spots for several minutes to achieve muscle release before moving on to the next area of the body.

When you arrive for your massage, please talk with Liza about any outstanding issues you would like addressed in your massage; additionally, a deep tissue massage should never hurt, and if it is painful, do communicate that immediately. At the end of your session, drink lots of water to help your body express the toxins released during the massage.
