What is Deep Tissue Massage?

Chronic muscle tension and / or injury can result in adhesions, which are bands of painful tissue. This tissue can be inflamed causing pain, limited movement and blocked circulation. Deep tissue massage is a type of massage that can help to realign and release deeper layers of connective tissue. It is especially helpful for chronically tense areas such as the back, neck, or shoulders or hips.
