Deep Tissue Massage level 1-2

Deep Tissue Massage workshop, level 1-2

Formation-Massage-Deep-Tissue-niveau-1-2This method allows access to the deeper layers of tissue by way of the surrounding connective tissue (fascia). Rather than repeating the same maneuvers with increased pressure or simply sliding over the muscle surface (as in Swedish massage), students will learn to access and stretch out the muscle in a more efficient way.

Using a small amount of shea butter (instead of oil) creates a greater adherence between the therapist’s hands and client, making it possible to work the muscle from different angles in a more three-dimensional way. This increased adherence encourages relaxation at the fascia level, allowing for better movement and increased mobility.
