Deep tissue massage techniques
Deep tissue massage techniques target the deeper layers of muscle that other types of massage might not reach.
However, having a deep tissue massage isn’t the same as having normal massage, just with stronger pressure. Deep tissue techniques are actually designed to break down tight bands – also known as adhesions – within both the muscles and the soft tissues that wrap around them (fascia).
So a deep tissue massage isn’t a ‘soft lighting and music’ relaxing type of massage. The techniques are deep and direct to tackle specific physical issues and you might actually feel a bit tender for a few hours afterwards before you feel the benefit.
