Deep Tissue Massage:

There is so much more to Deep Tissue Massage than just pushing hard or using your elbows. Deep tissue massage involves getting into the “deeper” levels of the muscle tissue. This technique does not necessarily require extreme levels of force. The skill in order to get deep into the muscle tissue fibers requires slow, deliberate, and precise pressure along with much patience. You can not rush into deep tissue. Many who have received hard pressure massage come away with the feeling of just being bruised. That’s because the therapist was pushing through without checking in with their client. This technique involves the clients ability to breathe and relax along with proper communication from both therapist and client. This vital communication in deep tissue underlies the main difference between increasing the healing process and torturing someone.
