Deep Tissue Massage

A Deep Tissue Massage is recommended for the purpose of focusing on a particular muscle group or region of the body. It is very infrequent that the whole body is addressed during a deep tissue massage. It’s important for the client to realize that “deep” tissue refers to reaching the layer of muscles that lay beneath the superficial layers. It does not necessarily mean the massage therapist will press harder or firmer. It is always important that the client tell the massage therapist how much pressure is liked during a massage.
