What is Deep Tissue Massage?

A deep tissue massage is aimed at treating the deeper muscle and fascia structures of the body to soothe muscle pain and improve flexibility, mobility and blood circulation. The massage techniques used in this form of massage therapy are similar to those used in Swedish massage, but firmer pressure is applied to the affected area to obtain the desired outcome.

  • Back pain
  • Headache
  • Strains or sprains
  • Whiplash
