What is Deep Tissue Massage
Deep tissue massage is designed to relieve severe tension in the muscle and the connective tissue or fascia. It is used to treat particular musculo-skeletal disorders and complaints. The sessions are often long, and can feel quite intense as a result of the deliberate, focused work.
This type of massage focuses on the muscles located below the surface of the top muscles. Deep tissue massage is often recommended for individuals who experience consistent pain, are involved in heavy physical activity (such as athletes), and patients who have sustained physical injury. It is not uncommon for receivers of deep tissue massage to have their pain replaced with a new muscle ache for a day or two due to the release of lactic acid congestion being released into the the filtration systems of your body for "clean up".
