Deep Tissue Massage is a massage style that uses pressure to relieve tension and pain deep in your muscles and connective tissues. This can be very beneficial for those who suffer from chronic pain, tension, and various muscular and sports injuries. Slower, deeper pressure is applied to help break down muscle knots and adhesion’s for pain relief. This helps restore normal movement back into the joints and surrounding muscles and tendons. Deep tissue massage can ultimately help to increase your athletic performance as well. Many athletes prefer this type of massage especially after an intense game or workout because it can help with recovery from their injuries or muscle tension.
