Mashing is a form of deep tissue therapy that isolates and focuses on fibrotic restrictive tissue and is applied to designated areas all over the body. Mashing is beneficial to everybody and their fascia.
As the client relaxes, we apply gentle or firm pressure (depending on the client’s needs and preference) to specific areas of the body. There are many benefits associated with mashing including increased circulation and blood flow, decreased muscle tightness and tension, decreased scar tissue and pain, the ability for the muscles to stretch and strength train optimally, and more. Clients leave a mashing session feeling refreshed, a sense of openness and able to move their bodies better.
