Deep Tissue Massage

Deep tissue massage as manual therapy

When people ask my if I do deep work, I tell them “I am 6 feet tall and weigh 195 pounds, and I am going to lean on you.”  So yes… I do deep work.

Deep tissue massage, often times called myo-fascial work exactly what it sounds like, it is a deep massage of the muscles and connective tissue. We use these techniques to really get into the big, sore muscles of the body, where a light touch, although relaxing, will never get into “the belly of the beast.”  I have met a thousand therapists who say “I do deep work.” Of those thousand, less than a hundred have the strength or feel required to do deep work. When I get massage, I like to feel it in my bones. Not to the point of pain, as I do not subscribe to the “no pain no gain” philosophy, I prefer instead a deep, thorough pressure throughout the body. I like my entire body to feel like it is being treated, and  somehow woken up, or brought back to life. I like to have my joints mobilized and my muscles stretched. When I am done I want to feel as though my body is awake and free. When I work on your body, these are the same goals I would have for you.
