Deep tissue massage therapy is similar to Swedish massage, but the deeper pressure is beneficial in releasing chronic muscle tension. The focus is on realigning deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue, tendons and fascia.
It is especially helpful for chronic aches and pains and contracted areas such as stiff neck and upper back, low back pain, leg muscle tightness, and sore shoulders.
Some of the same strokes are used as classic massage therapy, but the movement is slower and the pressure is deeper and concentrated on areas of tension and pain in order to reach the sub-layer of muscles and the fascia (the connective tissue surrounding muscles).
Deep tissue massage works by physically breaking down adhesion’s to relieve pain and restore normal movement. This therapy uses direct deep pressure. Muscles must be relaxed in order for the therapist to reach the deeper musculature.
