Deep tissue massage therapy is aimed at the deeper tissue structures of the muscle and fascia (the protective layer surrounding muscles, bones and joints), also called connective tissue.the deeper pressure is beneficial in releasing chronic muscle tension.
Deep tissue massage uses many of the same movements and techniques as Swedish massage, but the pressure will generally be more intense.It is also a more focused type of massage, as the therapist works to release chronic muscle tension.
Psychiatry found that massage modalities like deep tissue reduce stress hormone levels and heart rate while boosting mood and relaxation by triggering the release of Oxycontin and serotonin.
In another word it is a massage technique that works on the deeper layers of muscle tissue. it uses slower and firmer strokes and pressure than other treatments – deep finger pressure that concentrates on particular areas, and follows or goes across the fibers of muscles and tendons.This is a blanket term that describes a number of different therapies, and is often used medically by physiotherapists, chiropractors and so on.
