At Graves Family Chiropractic in Frisco our Massage Therapist have extensive training in Deep Tissue Massage.
Deep Tissue Massage targets severe muscle spasms that have been there a long time. Deep Tissue Massage reaches the deeper muscle layers and helps breaks up scar tissue & fibrotic tissue from old injuries or surgeries. Working a specific joint or muscle, the Massage Therapist can access deeper layers of muscle. Starting the massage with light pressure and easing into deeper pressure allows the therapist to effect deeper muscles. This approach is recommended as each person experiences pressure differently. If deep pressure is applied too quickly, the muscles tighten which prevents reaching the deeper layers of muscles.
