DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE Perth is a generic term used to describe body work which goes below superficial connective tissue. The intend is to break up old structural patterns and to allow the free flow of nutrients and oxygen in the blood. This type of massage is performed to eliminate knots and locked up areas. It frees up congestion of the muscle attachments. Muscles which are free of adhesions allow a better range of movement. They are also more effective regarding strength and endurance. This is especially beneficial in any form of muscle training – including GYM WORKOUTS, ENDURANCE TRAINING like RUNNING, CYCLING and ATHLETICS.
Deep Tissue Massage Perth applies a considerable amount of pressure by the therapist. Techniques include deep, gliding pressure along the length of the muscle fibre as well as friction across the grain of the muscle with the aim to release adhesions and realign tissue fibres. In some cases this may cause some discomfort.
A slow and steady pressure held over a prolonged period of time usually allows the tissue to release at its own pace.

Trigger Point Therapy Perth
TRIGGER POINTS are also known as MYOFASCIAL TRIGGER POINTS. They are areas of hyper-irritability in the soft tissue structure usually manifesting as a nodule within a taut muscle band. They control the state of contraction. Active trigger points may cause muscle spasm and referred pain. A Trigger Point can be acute and therefore be painful. If it is latent, it will only be noticed by the client as soon as the therapist applies pressure onto the area.
A firm digital pressure is applied by the practitioner. She is then able to locate the specific points causing pain and restricted movement. They may often be located in places different to where the client actually feels the pain.
