Deep Tissue Massage is a style of massage that is designed to get into the connective tissue of the body, rather than just the surface muscles. A variety of techniques are used to deeply penetrate the muscles and fascia, loosening them and releasing tension. Many clients have a more intense experience with a Deep Tissue Massage, but also feel that it is more beneficial, because it addresses deep-seated muscle pains. Like other types of massage, deep tissue is most beneficial when undertaken on a regular basis, so that therapist and client can work together to correct long term problems, relax the body, and prevent injury. (Deep Tissue Massage and Therapeutic Massages are interchangeable terms when dealing with pain issues, and discussing which is required for your specific needs is highly recommended and advisable – review the therapist’s profile to ensure you receive the best suited therapist for you and your needs.)
