deep-tissue-massageDeep Tissue Massage is a form of bodywork that aims to relieve tension in the  deeper layers of tissue in the body. Deep Tissue Massage is a highly effective  method for releasing chronic stress areas due to misalignment, repetitive motions,  and past lingering injuries. Due to the nature of the deep tissue work, open  communication during the session is crucial to make sure you don’t get too  uncomfortable. Keep in mind that soreness is pretty common after the treatment,  and that plenty of water should be ingested to aid with the flushing and removal of  toxins that will have been released from the deep tissue during the session.

deep-tissueSometimes, deep tissue is the only option for muscle tension.  People who are high stress, usually require deep tissue.  The brain and the muscles are one in the same. Think about it… the brain sends signals down the spinal cord and off to the muscles.  If you are stressed, then your muscles will reflect that.  High-stress individuals usually have extreme muscle tension.

But just know, with just deep tissue alone, the body is still not at a state of homeostasis.  Relaxation is extremely important for high stress individuals who are chronically tense.  Supplements may help, better sleep may help, or a higher intake of water may make a difference.  The point is, Trina is not the type of therapist to do deep tissue massage therapy and send you on your way to come back over and over to have the same massage done week after week. Trina is a problem solver.  Her goal is to help you find balance in your life and help you find the right modality to reach that goal.
