ATHLETIC MASSAGE THERAPY
Muscular Massage therapy in Pittsfield, MA
Muscular therapy differs from Massage therapy due to the intent or goal of the session. If you've ever been disappointed by a deep tissue massage, you'll be glad you found MVP.
Deep tissue massage is used when the deeper, underlying musculature is in need of manipulation. Working through the layers takes a bit of time because we don’t like risking injury to the superficial tissue. This is a high pressure and often targeted pressure that tends to leave you feeling a little sore just afterward but in the following days you’ll feel great. The gluteus medius and piriformis muscles often require a deep pressure and it is these muscles that cause most lower back pain in people. Rhomboids, traps, and erectors are also targets of deep tissue techniques.
