Deep tissue massage uses greater pressure, whilst moving very slowing along muscles. The focus for me as a massage therapist is warming up and relaxing surface muscles so that deeper muscles can be treated. Muscle tightness or discomfort are the most popular reason for deep tissue massages. Whilst working I may use my reinforced fingers, knuckles or elbows to produce the right amount of pressure. Throughout the massage you and I communicate so that the experience remains comfortable and relaxing.
