Deep tissue massage is a deeper form of massage targeting areas of tension in the muscles. It involves using sustained pressure with slow, deep strokes to target the inner layers of your muscles and connective tissues. This helps to break down scar tissue that forms following an injury.
Deep tissue massage is used for chronic aches and pain, even if you are not involved in any sporting activity, a deep tissue massage can benefit you. Tension can build up in the muscles, whether it is from the stresses and strains of everyday life, digging up weeds in the garden or poor posture adopted in the working environment.
