Deep tissue massage is a technique of massage that is primarily used to treat problems with the musculoskeletal, such as strains and sports injuries. It requires applying constant pressure to target the inner layers of your muscles and connective tissues using long, deep strokes. This helps to break up the scar tissue that forms after an injury and to reduce muscle and tissue stress. By increasing blood flow and reducing inflammation, it can also facilitate faster healing.
Both physical and psychological benefits are offered by deep tissue massage. Deep tissue massage helps to relieve muscle pain and improve discomfort, unlike most massage therapies that focus on relaxation. But it can also allow you to physically unwind, too.
