Massage: The Deep Tissue Variety

All about Deep Tissue massage

It is a massage focusing primarily on the deeper layers of the muscle tissue, and which aims particularly at releasing the chronic patterns of muscle tension in the body.

It uses slow strokes and deep finger pressure on specific areas of the body. A deep tissue massage also helps to break up and eliminate any existing scar tissues.

When you are under stress, both oxygen and nutrients are blocked which leads to inflammation and build up of toxins in the muscle tissue. This type of massage helps in loosening of muscle tissues, releases toxins which inturn regulate blood circulation.

How it Works

We go for a deep tissue massage to relax the body while releasing tension and toxins, which sooth the muscles. This massage technique is easy enough to learn.

The best way is to start superficially and then slowly ease in to the depth of the muscle. This is important, since each of us experience pressure in a different manner, when it is soft to one person, it will be harder to the other.

If the pressure is applied too hard and too quickly, the muscles may tighten in order to protect that particular area. This is not only somewhat painful but also leads to serious injuries.

The main purpose of this massage is to relieve pain and strain from muscle tissues, and is mainly used to cure sports related injuries.


Muscle tendon and ligament injuries as well as that of crippling diseases are also being treated, by this massage variety.

It is also very effective for that of skeletal structures that are found to lie deep within the body and which usually cannot be reached with the fingers in a regular type of massage.

This massage works by breaking down scar tissue and crystallization, which helps to restore proper muscular balance and bone structure.
