What Is Deep Tissue Massage?
Deep tissue massage uses slower strokes and deeper pressure, usually used to treat primary areas of discomfort to release tension held deep in the muscles and connective tissues.
Deep tissue massage offers both physical and psychological benefits. Unlike other massage techniques that focus on relaxation, deep tissue massage helps to treat muscle pain and improve stiffness. But it can still help to you unwind mentally, too.
It may also promote faster healing by increasing blood flow and reducing inflammation.
