Massage is no longer considered just a luxury item. For many, it is a necessary practice to help keep them moving, feeling, and functioning well. Massage is considered a complimentary practice to many forms of medicine and health practices. Studies have shown that massage is an effective treatment for reducing stress, pain and muscle tension. Additionally, massage often produces feelings of well-being, comfort and connection. There are many different forms of massage and at MATRIX, we offer a variety…

deep tissue massage
Deep Tissue Massage uses deeper pressure and shorter, more focused techniques to help relieve chronic muscle tension. Deep tissue techniques typically focus on specific problem areas.
The thirty-minute version will be focused on one or two specific trouble spots.
The sixty-minute version will target trouble areas and incorporate Swedish massage techniques for a full body massage experience.
The ninety-minute version is targeted toward people who need more time spent on their chronic issues or prefer to have a full body Swedish Massage plus deeper work on specific trouble areas of the body.
The primary goal of a classic Swedish Massage is relaxation. Long, gentle strokes are applied to the full body to ease tension and increase blood flow to the heart. Swedish Massage increases the level of oxygen in the blood, decreases muscle toxins, improves circulation and flexibility, and promotes feelings of relaxation and well-being.
The sixty-minute version will give you enough time to enjoy the experience on your entire body
The ninety-minute version will allow more time one each part of the body or some extra work where you enjoy it most.
