Deep Tissue Massage

Deep Tissue is a style of bodywork that focuses on working with the layers of the body in a way that helps these layers to relax, lengthen, and release holding patterns.

At NHI, you will learn to use your elbows and forearms to obtain deep results – and not wear out their fingers and thumbs!

We also show how to achieve the results of deep tissue work by changing the angle of your touch to the body, where you place your body when you work, and how you can detect the particular layer of tissue you want to address.

In fact, deep tissue can be done:

  • Without straining
  • By working slowly, and using very little oil
  • By directing our attention to the deeper layers of the body
