A deep tissue massage is a type of massage mainly used for treating sports injuries and strains. It’s called deep tissue because sustained pressure is applied to target the muscles and connective tissues’ inner layers.

Benefits of a deep tissue massage
Deep tissue massages have physical and psychological benefits. Deep tissue massages can improve muscle stiffness and pain and while the focus isn’t relaxation, it’s certainly relaxing to get it. If you suffer from chronic muscle pain or need to rehabilitate an injury, this massage could really help you out.
Deep tissue massages can break up scar tissue and break down muscle knots or adhesions that interfere with circulation causing pain, limited range of motion, and swelling. Even though this type of massage is ideal for athletes, people working at 9 to 5 jobs can also benefit from it. Those who have to sit on a desk, stand up, or do repetitive movements throughout the day, start developing muscle tension and pain.
Deep tissue massage therapy is very similar to Swedish massages. The main difference is that slow and firm pressure is applied, targeting the deepest layers of muscle tissue, tendons, and fascia in order to release tension.
