Deep Tissue Massage

Deep Tissue Massage at Amelia Island MassagesDeep Tissue Massage therapy targets chronic tension in muscles that lie far below the surface of your body. Your therapist will provide relief by using various deep pressure techniques such as slow strokes, direct pressure and friction movements that go across the grain of the muscle. Many of the principles used for the deep tissue massage are also present in the Swedish massage, but the deep tissue massage is rather more forceful in nature. Moreover, this form of massage focuses on problem areas; this means that it targets the stiff muscle regions that are overly stressed, rather than working permanently on the back and neck areas. However, no matter how naturally intense this massage can be, it will not hurt as much as what many people have come to believe.

Neuromuscular Massage at Amelia Island MassagesNeuromuscular massage therapy (NMT) is a form of deep tissue massage that is applied to individual muscles. It is used to increase blood flow, reduce pain and release pressure on nerves caused by injuries to muscles and other soft tissue. NMT helps release “trigger points” or knots of tense muscle that can also refer pain to other parts of the body.
