The term deep tissue massage refers to a variety of massage styles that are directed at the deeper tissue structures of the muscle and fascia to release chronic muscle tension. Fascia is a sheet of fibrous connective tissue located under the skin that attaches to muscles and organs to stabilize our body structure. The goal with deep tissue massage is to affect the numerous layers of fascia that support muscle tissue and loosen the bonds between the layers of connective tissue.
People who have had sports injuries, car accident injuries, work injuries or injuries sustained from simply living life often form adhesions along with less flexibility and elasticity in their muscles and fascia. The good news is that deep tissue massage, along with care from our Redmond OR Chiropractor and Naturopath, can help tremendously by releasing muscle tension resulting in less pain.

You may request the amount of pressure you desire as each session is customized to your specific needs and preferences. Please speak to our Redmond OR Chiropractor, Naturopathic Doctor, and massage therapist to see if deep tissue massage is right for you.
