Deep Tissue

Deep tissue massage is a specific type of massage that works on the deep layers of muscle and fascia in the body. Many people have misconceptions of deep tissue work and believe it is, or should be painful. Sometimes this technique involves the therapist using firmer pressure to reach these key areas and get them to release; the sensation can be painful/uncomfortable for some individuals. However, deep tissue massage can also refer to gentle yet sustained pressure targeting the myofascial layer; I do this in practice by applying less lotion to increase friction and separate tissue layers
