Dr. Tremblay and the entire team at MédIME are proud to introduce a new member of their professional team. Eric Bourgeois is a therapeutic grade massage therapist specializing in deep tissue massage.
The deep tissue massage is an intense massage prized for its effectiveness in solving chronic musculoskeletal and structural imbalances. This type of massage focuses on realigning deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue. Using elbows, thumbs or fingertips, enough pressure is applied to reach the targeted tissues. This pressure is maintained until complete relaxation.
This technique is different from the conventional massage as it is practiced with little or no massage oil. Elongation, compressions and neuromuscular technique (trigger points) are the main techniques used during the treatment. Because movements are very slow, the problematic area is prioritized during the session as well as the peripheral zone.
Beneficial for all, deep tissue massage is often recommended for people who suffer from chronic pain, people who participate in intense physical activities or have serious physical injuries. It is particularly useful for chronically contracted and tense areas including torticollis sore shoulders and lower back contractions. Finally, it also helps to relax and increase the level of energy and vitality.
