Deep tissue massage, it is not about more “pressure,” but working on deeper layers of tissue in the body. Yes, it can be uncomfortable sometimes, but the pressure will be adjusted to your comfort level. Recommended for people who need very specific work.
Deep tissue massage is a technique that focuses primarily on the deeper layers of muscles and the fascia. Sometimes this technique involves the therapist using firmer pressure in order to reach these key areas and get them to release, which is why this particular massage is oftentimes recommended for people who are comfortable with a slightly more intense touch. However, deep tissue massage can also refer to gentle yet sustained pressure targeting the myofascial layer.
Deep tissue massage has sometimes been also called trigger point. It is believed that Trigger Points are created by injuries, muscle strain and emotional stress. Sometimes trigger points can lie dormant and don’t cause pain until they are activated by physical or emotional stress. Massage therapy is a great way to get help with those triggers’ points.
The deep tissue massage offers many benefits. It can relieve chronic muscle tension, reduce inflammation, and relieve stress.
