Deep tissue massage is a massage technique that focuses on the deeper layers of muscle tissue. It aims to release the chronic patterns of tension in the body through slow strokes and deep finger pressure on the contracted areas, either following or going across the fibres of the muscles, tendons and fascia.

Pressure as well as friction is applied to the muscle fibres with the help of elbows, hands and fingers. It focuses on realigning the deeper layers of muscles. Pressure is also applied to separate as well as to stretch the tissue of the muscles in order to enhance blood circulation. Deep Tissue Massage also helps in the release of toxins from the body and thus provides relaxation of the muscles. It can help reduce and relieve deep chronic muscle tension represented as knots, muscle induced pinched nerves, and can help lessen inflammation patterns, reduce scar tissue and assist with sciatica.
