Deep Tissue Massage

Benefits of Deep Tissue Massage

  • Increases Circulation
  • Decreases Pain and Muscle Aches
  • Moisturizes Skin

Deep Tissue is a type of massage therapy that focuses on realigning deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue.

 

It is especially helpful for chronically tense and contracted areas such as stiff necks, low back tightness, and sore shoulders. Some of the same strokes are used as classic massage therapy, but the movement is slower and the pressure is deeper and concentrated on areas of tension and pain.

Couples Massage

Benefits of Couples Massage

  • Increases Circulation
  • Decreases Pain and Muscle Aches
  • Moisturizes Skin

Two people are massaged in the same room, at the same time, by two different therapists.

 

It can be a husband and wife, girlfriend and boyfriend, same-gender partners, moms and daughters, or even best friends. As for couples massage etiquette, it’s fine to talk to each other through the massage if you want, or be quiet the whole time. It’s really up to you.
