What can I expect in a session?
Deep tissue work is never a full body treatment. This is to allow the therapist enough time to thoroughly assess specific muscles and tissues, and warm them up in preparation for treatment. Slow, focused pressure is always used to help encourage the body to soften, adjust, and loosen, which subsequently allows the therapist to sink in deeply into the restriction to facilitate release. Working very slowly in this manner helps to achieve the most long-lasting muscular change and effective pain relief.
Your therapist will ask you to communicate regularly during the session. This is to receive your feedback, any additional direction to help pinpoint specific areas of pain, ensure the right amount of pressure is being applied, and monitor changes in the tissue as it is being treated.
