Deep tissue massage is a type of massage therapy that targets the deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue in the body. It involves applying deep pressure to specific areas of the body to relieve tension and pain. This type of massage is typically used to treat chronic pain, injuries, and musculoskeletal disorders. The therapist may use a variety of techniques, including knuckles, fists, and elbows, to apply pressure to the deeper layers of muscle tissue. Deep tissue massage can be uncomfortable at times but can provide significant relief from chronic pain and injuries with lasting results. It is important to communicate with the therapist throughout the session to ensure that the pressure is appropriate and comfortable.
