What is a Deep Tissue Massage?


Deep tissue massages come in various forms, such as trigger point therapy, neuromuscular therapy and integrative connective tissue work. These techniques can be incorporated into almost any massage modality, and any amount of pressure can be used.

A deep tissue massage has been known to relieve chronic pain in some body regions, improve blood pressure, break up scar tissue, and relieve stress and tension.

Like a Swedish massage, a deep tissue massage is coupled with some intense pressure, which is beneficial in releasing tension throughout the body.

Massage is not a “no pain, no gain” scenario. The pressure that is best for you is whatever pressure feels therapeutic and enjoyable to you.

You should be able to breathe normally and keep your body relaxed. Any massage that makes you tense up your body is counterproductive to your therapy.
