Applied to both the superficial and deep layers of muscle and connective tissue, this treatment is targeted at specific musculo-skeletal patterns that have arisen either from a physical injury or chronic long-term postural imbalances. Familiar massage techniques are blended with targeted work on muscle knots, trigger points, and tendon attachments. The sessions can be intense and focused. This is a great choice for athletes pre- or post-event, and for those experiencing chronic pain. Gels and oils with anti-inflammatory properties may be requested.
