Deep tissue massage is directed at the deeper tissue structures of the muscles and fascia. Albeit it relies on many of the same movements and techniques used in Swedish massage, the amount of pressure exerted is generally more intense as the therapist works to release the chronic muscle tension or knots. This added pressure may feel uncomfortable on several occasions but is frequently known as a “good pain” by clients. It enhances the therapeutic benefits of the massage and helps patients recover from chronic pain and injury. Deep tissue massage is often an all-over treatment that is not focused on a specific issue but addresses the whole body.
A deep tissue massage is great for individuals who participate in intense exercise, have a muscle injury (a strain or tear) or who have a chronic pain condition such as consistent upper or lower back pain.
