Deep Tissue is a generic term used to describe bodywork which goes below superficial connective tissue with the intent of breaking up old structural patterns and allowing the free flow of nutrients and oxygen in the blood. Deep tissue requires the therapist to apply a considerable amount of pressure which may cause some discomfort. Trigger Point Therapy and Myofascial Release are both considered forms of deep tissue massage. Commonly these techniques assist in recovery from specific pain syndromes that require a deeper form of work to be truly effective.
