Deep tissue massage is a massaging technique that primarily focuses on the deeper layers of muscles and the fascia. This technique involves the therapist using firmer pressure in order to reach these key areas and get them to release, which is why this particular massage is oftentimes recommended for people who are comfortable with a slightly more intense (stronger) presuure and touch.
Some of the key benefits to a Deep Tissue Massage are the same as other massage techniques and include:
- Stress Relief
- Easing Pain
- Can make movement easier
- Can possibly lower heart rate and blood pressure
- Breaks up scar tissue
- Reduces chronic pain
