What is Deep Tissue Massage?

Deep tissue massage is a kind of massage technique that targets the deeper sections of muscle and fascia in order to loosen up the muscle fibre, relieve chronic pain and improve circulation. The majority of massage strokes used in this type of massage are similar to those used in a Swedish massage. Perhaps the only difference between them is the amount of pressure applied in a deep tissue massage, which is firmer than a relaxation massage, as its purpose goes beyond simply providing relaxation.
