Deep Tissue

  • Deep Tissue – Erector Spinae, Intervertebrals, QL

    Deep Tissue massage of the erector spinae, intervertebrals, and quadratus lumborum where the client is prone (facedown). These areas are hot spots - areas that clients ask for work often. And most clients will find relief with having deep tissue in these areas. Working down the erector spinae to alleviate back soreness can be extremely relaxing for clients and is a fun experience for students as we notice muscular change. Deep Tissue of the erector spinae, intervertebrals and quadratus lumborum is taught at all locations in Orange County and San Diego County.

  • Deep Tissue – Scapula, Back & Pectoral Review

    Who doesn't love a good shoulder and back massage? But did you know that massaging both the muscles on the back and the front of the body muscles is the best way for relief? Often our pectoral muscles are tight and pull our scapula forward. After we show you how to get those shoulder, traps, and back released, we show you how to get chest releases for a greater overall effect. We instruct Deep Tissue on the Pectoral Girdle in our Massage school located in Laguna Hills, San Diego, and Escondido.

  • Deep Tissue – Hamstrings & Quads

    When working with the hamstrings its important to know where the origin and insertion are. Shaunna's Deep Tissue demonstration of the hamstrings and quadriceps will help clarify where the origins and insertions are, what Deep tissue strokes are appropriate and how to get these muscles to unglue. The goal of Deep Tissue is to melt fasciae, melting the connective tissue of the body allows a freer range of motion. Deep Tissue of the hamstrings and quads is taught in Laguna Hills, Kearny Mesa, and Escondido.

  • Deep Tissue – Abdomen & Psoas

    Low back pain? Often low back pain can be addressed by working on the front of the body. Learn deep compressions on the abdomen and psoas. People who are sedentary have a shortened psoas and may have relief from low back pain (where the psoas originates) by massaging and stretching this area. Working with the abdominal muscles and psoas is difficult due the sensitive area. Working with the breath to slowly sink into the area is a great way to work with a clients body. At Healing Hands we teach deep tissue of the psoas and abdomen in Orange County and San Diego County.

  • Deep Tissue – Intercostals & Diaphragm

    Massage the diaphragm and intercostals with Deep Tissue to help unlock the breath. Letting our lungs expand and moving through the intercostals can allow deep inhalations. This can be very helpful for clients who experience shortness of breath, or breathing related diagnosis. While massage the intercostals and diaphragm will not fix an underlying issue (like asthma), it may help make the symptoms more manageable by allowing the ribcage muscles to expand.

  • Deep Tissue – Neck, SCM, Scalenes

    Let's go on a neck journey! Join us as we work on the neck muscles including the sternocleidomastoid, suboccipitals, scalene, and levator scapulae. Getting deep neck work can alleviate jaw issues, headaches, and neck aches. One of the few massages that you can do while being seated, neck work is always a highly sought after massage and can feel amazing for but clients, and therapists needing a moment off their feet. This course can be found in Orange County and San Diego County,

  • Deep Tissue – Side Lying

    Side laying work makes the Quadratus Lumborum and the Gluteal muscles more accessible. Many Massage Therapists do not know how to work on clients in side laying position. But here at Healing Hands you will learn which muscles are more accessible in a side laying position, what bolsters are helpful, and how to give a Deep Tissue massage side-laying. This course is taught in Laguna Hills, Escondido, and Kearny Mesa.
