Body re-alignment and even Deep Tissue body work are delicate operations. Free unhindered access is needed to feel with the finger tips, all the individual deep and delicate muscle fibers, connective tissues, tendons and joint positions…
A solid layer of thick fatty tissue makes the operation of Deep tissue Massage and Body re-aligning very difficult.
The therapist cannot tell through the fatty tissue what is taking place at deeper levels of the structures needing treatment.
The results tend to be less dramatic even if possible, and noticeable alignment difference can be difficult to assess, because the shape of the underlying body structure is obscured by the extra weight carried.
