Deep tissue massage is a focused, therapeutic massage that targets muscle knots (also known as "adhesions") and specific problem areas in the deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue.
It should not produce pain when performed properly.
Deep is relative to the tissues being worked on and the speed the depth is attained. Deep tissue for best results usually takes several sessions to get best results.
This type of massage is particularly beneficial for people with chronic pain or lingering injuries that cause limited mobility.
It's effective in treating repetitive stress injuries such as tennis elbow or carpal tunnel syndrome and can be helpful in reducing the symptoms of osteoarthritis.
