Understanding Deep Tissue and sports massage therapy

Deep tissue and sports massage therapy are geared toward the everyday person or athlete. Those who demand personalized bodywork for their training regimen, season, and sport-specific injuries as well as tension, knots, aches, and pain. Varying levels of pressure, strokes, and depth are used to release tissue, promote healing, relaxation, and recovery.
