Deep Tissue Massage
Deep tissue massage is a technique that mainly uses pressure on targeted layers of muscles and connective tissues of the body that may have been injured by strains or sport injuries. The chief tenet is to get beyond the superficial layers of tissue to penetrate deeper problem areas that are difficult to normalize without more pressure.
This technique can include cross fiber frictions, deep strokes, and active release of the muscles. The goal of deep tissue massage is to improve mobility, reduce pain, increase blood flow to the area to speed the healing process.
