Deep Tissue with Trigger Point Therapy (TPT)

This directed and concentrated deeper pressure affects various layers of fascia (connective tissue) that support muscle tissue and loosens adhesive bands in the fascial web between the layers of muscles. Deep pressure is applied to specific hypersensitive areas (trigger points) stopping the pain-spasm-pain cycle of ischemia which can originate from one strained or torn muscle and spread to other regions of the body. Deep tissue and TPT can be incorporated into other types of bodywork and massage sessions (Swedish, Myofascial.)
