Quoted From: https://nwmassagetherapy.com/deep-tissue-massage/?v=e2ae933451f4

"The therapist uses long, gentle, smooth strokes with superficial kneading and circulating movements to relax the muscles. This is very good for relaxation and release of tension. Deep Tissue Therapy is slower than the Swedish massage and targets the deeper layers of the muscles.Besides relaxing muscles and increasing blood flow to injured tissues, deep tissue massage can also help decrease stress and tension. It can help reduce blood pressure and also assist the body in producing hormones that stimulate happiness and positive feelings. If you are dealing with chronic pain, sports injuries, scar tissue issues, or general stress, deep tissue massage therapy can get you on the road to healing and wellness.fter an injury or surgery, our bodies produce scar tissue that can ultimately lead to stiffness and chronic pain. Our muscles can also develop "knots" or adhesions that can cause pain, limit our movement, and impede circulation. Deep tissue massage uses slow, firm, and deep strokes to address adhesions and scar tissue."
