Deep tissue is like a traditional Swedish massage with a more focused treatment on a problematic area and the therapist will apply a bit more pressure using cross-grain strokes (strokes that go across the grain of a muscle).

With repetitive motions or poor posture, some muscles get tensed up and block the oxygen and nutrients from getting where they are supposed to get. This creates a vicious circle, the tenser the muscles become, the less nutrient they get and as a result, residual material builds up causing pain. In terms of what deep tissue massage does, it breaks up this pain circle along with the scar tissue from previous injuries, realigns the tissue, and releases the built-up toxins from stressed muscles.

If you’re recovering from an injury, deep tissue massage can be a helpful part of your treatment plan.
