Deep Tissue Massage targets chronic tension in muscles that lie far below the surface of your body. You have five layers of muscle in your back, for instance, and while Swedish massage may help the first couple of layers, it won’t do much directly for the muscle underneath. Deep muscle techniques usually involve slow strokes, direct pressure or friction movements that go across the grain of the muscles. Massage therapists at Atlanta Chiropractic Group will use their fingers, thumbs or occasionally even elbows to apply the needed pressure.
Atlanta Chiropractic Group focuses on treating disorders of the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system, and the effects of these disorders on general health.
