Deep Tissue Massage
This strong-pressure massage enhances muscle recovery by targeting areas that are sore from exercise or just the tension of daily life. Deep muscle work is combined with stretching, rocking and circulation-enhancing strokes to move lactic acid out of the system. A Deep Tissue Massage Session from Ojas Spa targets the deep layers of connective tissue and muscle throughout the body. Using slow strokes to apply pressure, the massage focuses on areas of defined pain and tension. Injuries or chronic muscle tension can cause adhesions, more commonly referred to as knots, to form in the tendons, ligaments and muscles. These adhesions are rigid, often painful and they can block proper blood circulation, impede natural movement and cause inflammation and pain. When the muscles are deeply massaged, blood flow throughout the body is increased. The better blood flow reduces inflammation and therefore relieves pain. Deep tissue massage breaks down the adhesions to restore natural movement and reduce pain, and repeated massage sessions can break up and even eliminate the presence of scar tissue.
