Deep Tissue

IAMHEAING-logo280x280Definition of Deep Tissue Massage: Generally when people ask for a deep-tissue massage,
they really just mean they want “deep” work, the level of which is quite individual. In true
“deep-tissue” massage, the therapist uses techniques that are different than Swedish
massage, but usually they incorporate some “Swedish” into the treatment. Deep-tissue
techniques include cross-fiber work, Acupressure, and Trigger Point therapies.

Deep Tissue techniques are not really relaxing at all, because the client doesn’t get to
relax until after the treatment is finished. In many cases, the treatment resembles Physical
Therapy more than Massage Therapy, and 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).

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.

avatarI Absolutely recommend I AM Healing! I received Awake and Aware work & Healing during one of the roughest days I have had. The staff here are the best in their work, healing, massages, awareness, & mostly the ability to truly help you rid yourself of any negativity and tension you are holding in your body. I have to say I was skeptical initially about this type of healing work, but after one session, I AM HOOKED! Thank you Alan & Ally!!! I'll be back for more!

avatarWhen I went to I Am Healing and met with Alan, I had no ailments. (Well nothing too serious.) I purely enjoy the benefits of consciousness and energy healing; and I was curious about Access Consciousness. I had a lovely chat with Alan prior to the session which made me feel very comfortable and excited for what was to follow. During the session I felt completely relaxed and safe. The location is very well-kept and has an overall calming energy. When you walk in you instantly know that you are in a good place. After the Access Consciousness session, Alan offered to also work on my thighs and lower back which has been an annoyance of mine since August. Through massage and some really intense reflexology/trigger point therapy, Alan was able to relieve me of the tension and pain that had been a real bother for me. My overall experience left me feeling both physically and spiritually energized. I have also felt an increase in my confidence since the session. I am sleeping better and have been able to recall more dreams that I am lucid in. And I am starting to overcome certain difficulties I have had with letting go of thought during meditation. I am very grateful for my experience and will be returning again very soon for some more body/mind/soul-work!

avatarSometimes people find they are at the end of their rope trying to heal themselves. All other attempts with MDs, PhDs, etc. don't resonate, and don't deliver results. Sometimes even our friends don't quite relate to what is going on even though their hearts intention is to help.  I was that person seeking a solution to the "unlike me symptoms" my mind and body were undergoing.  It was through a random encounter that I met Ally Gomez and instantly felt a connection, as if I met my long lost friend. She is one of the very few who I trust to take care of me when I sense I am on the verge of an energetic change, which  I have come to realize indicates a major life event change or personal breakthrough. With her life partner Alan, together they create the I AM HEALING space and energy that is safe, impartial, and devoted to healing whatever comes to them. I highly recommend Ally, and I hope you have the opportunity to work with her too.
