Deep tissue massage is a massage technique that is designed to treat musculoskeletal issues, such as strains and sports injuries. The technique involves applying sustained pressure using slow, deep strokes to target the inner layers of your muscles and connective tissues. Deep tissue massage helps to break up the scar tissue that forms following an injury and reduce tension in muscle and tissue.
It is also seen to promote faster healing by increasing blood flow and reducing inflammation.
