Deep Tissue Massage Birmingham AL During a deep tissue massage, the massage therapist works through superficial layers of muscle tissue to reach the deeper, underlying muscles. Chronic muscular tension can result in adhesions in the muscle fibers that cause pain, inflammation and limited movement. Deep Tissue Massage works to actually break apart these adhesions to restore normal function to the muscle tissue. This makes deep tissue massage the perfect solution for getting rid of those stubborn knots in your back, neck and shoulders. The movements of a deep tissue massage differ from the long, fluid strokes of a Swedish Massage in that it is slower paced and more focused on specific areas of tightness. At Alternative Pain Management in Hoover Alabama, all of our therapists have received their training from the Birmingham School of Massage, where a strong focus is placed on Deep Tissue Massage and Neuromuscular Therapy.
