At Shephard Health, our Massage Therapy Team offers deep tissue and therapeutic massage. Deep tissue and therapeutic massage is a type of therapy that focuses on realigning deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue. It is especially helpful for chronic aches and pains and contracted areas such as stiff neck and upper back, low back pain, leg muscle tightness, and sore shoulders*.
When there is chronic muscle tension or injury, there are usually adhesion’s (bands of painful, rigid tissue) in muscles, tendons, and ligaments. Adhesions can block circulation and cause pain, limited movement, and inflammation. Deep tissue/therapeutic massage works by physically breaking down these adhesion’s to relieve pain and restore normal movement.
We can combine Massage Therapy with other treatment options like Shockwave Therapy, Laser Therapy, Active Release Therapy and Chiropractic Treatments.
Deep tissue massage usually focuses on a specific problem, such as chronic muscle pain, injury rehabilitation, and the following conditions:
- Chronic pain
