Therapeutic massage is beneficial in that it addresses specific areas of muscle tension unique to each individual. Our day to day activities and occupations possess repetitive motions and/or positions that often lead to imbalance of our musculoskeletal system and hence, muscle tension and pain. Deep tissue therapeutic massage is specifically beneficial for breaking down scar tissue and increasing blood circulation. Regular therapeutic massage sessions relieve muscle tension and may even prevent injury.
