Deep Tissue refers to a number of different massage techniques used to access deeper layers of muscle tissue and fascia. It is often used to reduce pain and inflammation and to help rehabilitate injuries.
Deep Tissue Massage focuses on deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue. It is especially helpful for chronic aches and pains and contracted areas such as stiff neck and upper back, low back pain, leg muscle tightness, and sore shoulders.
Deep Tissue massage can be combined with other types of massage therapy such as Myofascial Release or Trigger Point Therapy. Deep Tissue does not need to be painful to be effective and in fact can feel really good.
