Let’s go deep in ‘Deep Tissue Massage’

As the name suggests ‘Deep tissue Massage’, it focuses on the deeper layers of muscles, tissues and fascia (the protective layer that surrounds muscles, joints and bones). Neck, low back and shoulders are the areas where it is helpful. It is beneficial in releasing chronic muscle tension. Sports persons or people who are involved in heavy physical activity are recommended this massage type. Some people get confused with deep pressure massage and deep tissue massage. They are two different massage types. Deep pressure massage is performed with sustainable intense pressure on the entire body whereas Deep tissue massage is performed on a specific muscle to relieve the pain addressed by the client on a precise part of the body. Their sessions are not full body sessions and require more focus. Concentration in this massage type is on specific part of the body. Hand pressure, finger points, stroke type, stroke pressure everything is employed carefully as all these things set this massage type apart from others.

It gives relief from chronic pain, muscle tension or spasm, limited mobility, recovery from injuries, repetitive strain injury, postural problems, improves blood pressure, breaks up scar tissue, rehabilitates injured muscles, stress relief, fibromyalgia and osteoarthritis pain.
