Deep Tissue Massage

Deep tissue massage

Deep tissue massage is a more focused therapy that aims to release areas of tension, or "knots," in the deeper levels of musculature. This type of massage refers to various regimens or massage styles that are directed toward the deeper tissue structures of the muscle and fascia. Deep tissue massage is generally used to target a specific area of pain, stiffness, or reduced function, primarily by breaking down adhesions that often form as a response to injury. Some conditions for which deep tissue massage may be helpful include: fibromyalgia; injuries to muscles such as strains, sprains or pulls; pain from osteoarthritis or other bone conditions; or repetitive motion injuries, including carpal tunnel syndrome.
