... deep tissue massage and trigger point therapy in the philippines ... (life coach, counselor, psychotherapist, psychologist, psychiatrist)

.
of all the body therapies that i do, deep tissue massage and trigger point therapy are the ones mostly sought after by my clients who are athletes, dancers, theatre artists, and other professionals who use their body musculature intensively.
.deep tissue massage is not the same as "hard massage" which, for Filipinos, essentially means a strong and painful massage. deep tissue massage is a clinical body therapy which consists of slow massage strokes and attempts to reach the deeper muscular tissues. there can be mild to moderate discomfort or pain especially when the tight muscles are being worked on.
.
trigger point therapy is another clinical therapy which involves the application of pressure on tender muscle tissue called trigger points. when trigger points are pressed, they refer pain and tenderness to a different area of the body.
.
the goals of both deep tissue massage and trigger point are to loosen muscles, alleviate pain, and increase mobility. after the massage, there can be a day or two of soreness, just like how you would feel after a rigorous work-out at the gym or after playing sports.
.
done regularly, deep tissue and trigger point therapy are two body therapies that bring about deep muscle conditioning and healing.
