Massage Therapy in Highland Village, TX
Deep Tissue Therapeutic Treatments
At Studio 360, our team is highly trained to treat a wide variety of conditions through massage therapy techniques. Deep tissue massage therapy is similar to a Swedish massage, but the deeper pressure is beneficial in releasing chronic muscle tension. The focus is on the deepest layers of muscle tissue, tendons, and fascia (the protective layer surrounding muscles, bones, and joints).
How Does Massage Therapy Work?
A study in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine found that people’s blood pressure fell after a single 45 to 60-minute deep tissue massage. Additionally, a 2010 meta-analysis in the Journal of Clinical Psychiatry found that massage modalities like deep tissue reduce stress hormone levels and heart rate while boosting mood and relaxation by triggering the release of oxytocin and serotonin.
