Deep Tissue Massage

Deep tissue massage is a massage technique that’s mainly used to treat musculoskeletal issues, such as strains and sports injuries.

Deep Tissue Massage Overview

Deep tissue massage is similar to Swedish massage in that it focuses on setting a rhythm and using flowing strokes to apply pressure to muscles throughout the whole body. The main difference between deep tissue massage and Swedish massage is that deep tissue massage uses more pressure to push deeper into the muscle. This added pressure can be a little uncomfortable for some but is often described as a “good pain” by fans of the technique. This added edge enhances the therapeutic benefits of the massage, reduces tension throughout the body and helps patients recover from exercise and injuries. The overall effect of the deep tissue massage is a relaxing, whole-body treatment.
