Deep Tissue Massage is a type of massage therapy that uses firm pressure and slow strokes to reach deeper layers of muscle and fascia (fascia is the connective tissue surrounding muscles).


Deep Tissue Massage is used to break up scar tissue and physically break down muscle "knots" or adhesions (bands of painful, rigid tissue) that can disrupt circulation and cause pain, limited range of motion, and inflammation.

Benefits
Deep Tissue Massage usually focuses on a specific problem, such as chronic muscle pain, injury rehabilitation, and the following conditions:
• Low back pain
• Limited mobility
• Recovery from injuries (e.g. whiplash, falls)
• Repetitive strain injury, such as carpal tunnel syndrome 
• Postural problems
• Muscle tension in the hamstrings, glutes, IT band, legs, quadriceps, rhomboids, upper back
• Osteoarthritis pain
• Sciatica
• Tennis elbow
• Fibromyalgia
• Upper back or neck pain 

Will It Hurt?
At certain points during the massage, you may feel some discomfort or even some pain as the massage therapist works on areas where there are adhesions or scar tissue.
You should always tell your massage therapist if you feel pain during the massage. The therapist can adjust the technique or further prep the tissues if the superficial muscles are tense.
Pain isn't necessarily good, and it is not necessarily a sign that the 
massage is working. In fact, your body may tense up in response to pain, making it harder for the therapist to reach deeper muscles. 

What Can I Expect?
Massage therapists may use fingertips, knuckles, hands, elbows, and forearms during a deep tissue massage. You may be asked to breathe deeply as the massage therapist works on tense areas.
After the massage, you may feel some stiffness or soreness, but it should subside within a day or so.


People often notice an improved range of motion immediately after a Deep Tissue Massage.
