First of all,
Deep Tissue work is meant to break down the first layer of restrictions. Through the use of deep but gentle strokes, the intention is to coax your muscles into surrender.
The difference in Justin’s approach is this: He does not just go in hard just because your muscles are very tight. This is not typical Chinese Tuina. It is not meant to be rougher than your body can manage.
Just the right depth: Justin is able to communicate with you and calibrate the depth of massage that is just right for you. There are ways to coax the muscle tightness out of you without being abrupt or aggressive.
Justin will turn you around and do 25mins of Craniosacral Therapy. Now that your muscles are relaxed, your body will be transition from unwinding the muscles to unwinding the nervous system.
Unwinding the nervous system? Again, you have to try this to understand how much more deeply centered you will feel when your nervous system drops back down to baseline. This is the most important component of deep healing, and is tremendously helpful for calming down a wired nervous system.
Hands will be placed under your neck and you will feel your internal stress dropping a few more notches. Justin will end off by holding your feet to ground you. It will be utter bliss.
