Deep Tissue Bodywork refers to a variety of hands-on techniques that focus on restoring the body’s myofascia (connective tissue enveloping the muscles) to its natural, resilient state, allowing freer and easier movement. Tension, compression or an imbalanced distribution of stress tightens this tissue, resulting in “knots”, soreness, depletion of energy and restricted movement. Appropriate pressure and manipulation enables the fascia, and hence the entire body, to regain its innate flexibility and proper functioning.
