·· Deep Tissue Massage ··
Deep tissue is based on the Swedish, or classic massage. It uses some of the same techniques, but the movement is slower and the pressure is deeper and concentrated on areas of tension and pain. A deep tissue massage treatment is used for chronic muscle tension or injury and can be helpful in relieving stiff neck and upper back, low back pain, leg muscle tightness and sore shoulders. Deep tissue treatments can cause certain discomfort and pain at some points.
