Deep Tissue Massage targets deeper layers of muscle and tissue and helps eliminate and break up scar tissue from injuries. It is a term that is usually integrated into other massage styles.

As the body is made up of layers of muscle, requesting a deep tissue treatment means applying firm pressure in order to massage the muscles that lie beyond the superficial layers.

A Relaxation massage may actually become a deep tissue massage for some clients, as they may request a really firm massage knowing it is what’s needed for them to relax and to feel “something is being done”.

A deep tissue massage may also be incorporated into a remedial massage treatment plan if the source of the presenting problem lies in the deeper layers of muscle.

Deep tissue massage can help with:

  • Joint problems
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Muscular tightness
  • Improve flexibility
