Deep tissue massage

Aharon Yakovy

Seminar designed for therapists of contact professions

Deep tissue massage is used to treat acute and chronic problems such as muscle, tendon, ligament and cartilage problems. It improves limited joint mobility, relieves pain, improves posture and helps reduce mental stress.

Deep tissue massage is designed to reduce physical pain, whether superficial or deep, as well as to reduce adhesion of muscle fibers and the accumulation of lactic acid and fluid, which disrupt the normal muscle texture and cause a decrease in body function.

Deep tissue massage penetrates into the deeper layers of the muscles and is intended for people who can withstand strong and intense contact (amateur athletes and athletes), who suffer from muscle problems after strenuous or uncontrolled physical activity, and for people who do not follow proper recovery techniques after physical exertion, such as: stretching, hot tubs, sauna, whirlpool and more. Deep tissue massage also aims to relax chronically tight muscles and aims to improve movement limitations and promote proper body posture.
