What Are Deep Tissue Massages?
Deep tissue massage therapy incorporates slow, deep strokes in order to reach layers of muscle, tendons,and connective tissue (fascia) located deep below the skin. These massages are most effective for chronic aches, pain, and stiffness in areas like the legs, shoulders, back, and neck. Unlike other forms of massage therapy, deep tissue massages are able to dismantle scar tissue and break down areas of rigid tissue (adhesions) and other muscle knots. This frees blood circulation and relieves pain and inflammation while improving range of motion. Deep tissue massages are often most helpful with chronic injury or pain.
