Deep tissue therapy is a type of massage therapy that focuses on realigning deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue. This type of massage is typically more intense than a Swedish massage, and the therapist will use slow, deep strokes to target specific areas of tension and pain.
During a deep tissue massage, the therapist may use their fingertips, knuckles, hands, elbows, and even forearms to apply deep pressure to the muscles and connective tissue. The pressure may be firm and intense, but the therapist will work with the client to ensure that the pressure is within their comfort level.
The benefits of deep tissue therapy can include relief from chronic pain, improved mobility and range of motion, and a reduction in muscle tension and stiffness. This type of massage can also help to improve posture, alleviate stress and anxiety, and promote overall relaxation and well-being
