What is Deep Tissue Massage
Intended for relief of stubborn knots or areas of chronic tension, this massage is for those who prefer firm pressure and desire a workout from their session.
This massage can be a little intense and painful but so is the pain that you have currently. Acupuncture Works can help break up fibrous connective tissue that is making you tight and feeling restricted.
