Therapeutic Deep Tissue Massage

At Rosewood Medical Spa our qualified massage therapists offer deep tissue massages to help treat pain, muscle tension, tightness and reduced range of movement.

A deep tissue massage is applied to deeper layers of muscles and fascia tissue (connective tissue surrounding muscles).  A deep tissue massage can be used to treat adhesions in muscles, breaking down hard fibrous tissue and realigning them back into normal form.  A deep tissue massage will be beneficial to decrease tension, increase flexibility, reduce pain and improve recovery.
