Deep Tissue Massage
Deep Tissue refers to a number of techniques that generally use greater pressure than Swedish Massage. Deeper techniques generally are focused on specific muscles and muscle tissue at different layers under the skin. While Deep Tissue is generally more aggressive in nature than Swedish, it is not necessary to use more pressure than my clients can comfortably tolerate. In addition, deep pressure applied gradually and smoothly is much less disconcerting than when applied abruptly. I always use technique designed to provide the maximum benefit with the maximum comfort. It helps with chronic muscular pain and injury rehabilitation and reduces inflammation-related pain caused by arthritis and tendinitis. It is generally integrated with other massage techniques.
