What is Deep Tissue Massage?

Deep tissue massage is a type of bodywork that aims to alleviate the symptoms of restricted movement or tension in muscles, fascia and other soft tissues either across one particular area or throughout the whole body. It helps improve circulation and provide deep relaxation. Deep tissue massage uses cross fibre friction techniques on deep layers of muscle, fascia and even bones at times to help break down adhesions which can cause pain or restrict movement.

Some of the benefits deep tissue massage can provide include deep relaxation, improved circulation, reduced physical fatigue, pain relief, increased mental alertness and reduced stress levels.
