Deep tissue massage works on the deep layers of muscle and fascia in the body. Fascia is a band or sheet of connective tissue beneath the skin which attaches, stabilizes, encloses, and separates muscles and other internal organs.
Deep tissue massage is done using deep finger pressure with strokes that are firm and slow and is ideal for major muscle groups like the neck or lower back. It can also be used to relieve strain and treat injuries in the joints and tendons. It has several therapeutic effects and can be used to treat many different conditions, including:
