A deep tissue massage is a form of massage therapy that is designed to realign deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue. It is particularly useful for chronic aches and pains, especially in locations such as the neck, leg, lower back, and shoulders. The goal of deep tissue massages is to remove the adhesions that can otherwise limit circulation and cause pain.
There are many reasons why people seek this type of massage, whether that is for chronic muscle pain or injury rehabilitation. Deep tissue massages have numerous benefits, including, but not limited to, improved posture, sped up recovery, pain relief, increased circulation, and greater relaxation.
