Deep Tissue Massage
Deep tissue massage focuses on the deeper layers of fascia and connective tissue. It is especially useful for the neck, shoulders, and low back. Deep tissue massage uses some of the same strokes as other types of massage and is usually integrated with them. However, the movement of the strokes in deep tissue massage is slower and deeper on the affected area of the body. And to be effective, the muscles need to be relaxed. There is usually some pain after a deep tissue massage, but it should disappear after a day or two.
Deep tissue massage is helpful for conditions such as: postural problems, fibromyalgia, muscle tension, limited mobility, and chronic pain.
