This type of massage is more than just very firm pressure. It helps to loosen and reeducate tight "knotty" muscles through gradual increased pressure. We use a technique that pinpoints adhesions or trigger points, commonly referred to as "knots", and attempts to loosen and eventually dissolve them. It is highly effective for loosening areas that feel "stuck".
