Deep Tissue Massage 

Deep tissue massage is named as such for the reason that it is aimed particularly to the chronic tension in muscles that lie far below the surface of the body. The movements involved in this well-known massage technique are determined by their being slow, but with much pressure directed to the muscles underneath. Usually, in this kind of massage, the therapists use their thumb, fingers and even elbows to apply the needed pressure.

Deep tissue techniques are generally designed for more focused massage work. Working a specific joint, muscle or muscle group, the practitioner can access deeper layers of the soft tissue. Starting superficially and easing into the depth of the muscle slowly often allows more movement.

Deep tissue massage is effective because of its technique  consisting of slower, stronger massage that stimulates deep into muscles. This can be especially helpful for athletes who expose their muscles to daily, intensive conditioning. Deep tissue massage will noticeably loosen muscles, elevate pain, and increase mobility  all significant benefits for an athlete. 

Significant relief from deep tissue massage. The pressure exerted on different groups of muscle tissue stimulates circulation in areas of pain.

Deep tissue massage, however, is not for everyone. There can be mild to moderate discomfort during the massage as tight muscles are worked. And there can be a day or two of soreness following the deep tissue massage  similar to after you complete a particularly rigorous workout.
