The Benefits of Deep Tissue Massage

Targeted Massage Therapy for Chronic Discomfort

In our previous blog, we looked at the general relaxation of Swedish massage. Deep tissue massage is a similar type of massage technique, which uses the same kinds of strokes. The main difference between the two types is that deep tissue massage is a targeted therapeutic massage designed to alleviate specific problems in deeper muscles and connective tissue. For this reason, the massage strokes are generally much firmer as the massage effort is concentrated to reach deeper into the area presenting the problems and may be a little uncomfortable at first. However, the long-term benefits outweigh any initial discomfort.

Generally, this type of massage therapy is used to treat chronic conditions, and often a number of treatments over a period of time are required for the best results.
