Advanced Deep Tissue therapy uses gentle, sustained pressure and stretches to release restrictions in the connective tissue (Fascia). This tissue layer connects every muscle, tendon, ligament, bone and organ in our bodies.
A gentle blend of stretching and massage, this myofascial release uses hands-on manipulation of the entire body to promote healing, release and pain relief.
The therapy is based on the idea that poor posture, physical injury, illness and emotional stress can throw the body out of alignment and cause its intricate web of fascia to become tight and constricted. This myofascial release is said to release disruptions in this fascial network that links every organ and tissue in the body with every other part. Pressure on the bones, muscles, joints and nerves is relieved in the process, and balance is restored.
The release of tension once the body has responded to the therapy allows more functional flexibility and mobility of the muscles, fascia and associated structures. Release may also facilitate the emergence of negative or repetitive emotional patterns, which have interfered with the healing process.
The Advance Deep Tissue techniques are usually used during an hour or 90 minute massage session (eg. in combination with Remedial techniques) for which the patient will be unclothed. A series of treatments may be necessary, although relief may be obtained in one session and it is generally suitable for people of all ages.
Advanced Deep Tissue Therapy may be helpful for many physical problems, including:
- Back strain and general chronic or acute back pain
- Lumbar and thoracic pain
- Chronic cervical pain
- Dizziness, vertigo
