Targets the deep tissue structure of the fascia and muscles, refereed to as connective tissue. Of the many types of massage, deep tissue focuses on the release of muscle tension and chronic knots (aka adhesion).
Deep tissue massage can break up and eliminate scar tissue from previous injuries. A common problem is that muscle tension can block nutrients and oxygen from getting to where they need to go, and this will cause inflammation that allows toxins to build up in our muscles tissue. The inflammation and toxins contribute to pain and stress. Deep tissue massage breaks up and releases the built-up toxins by loosening the muscles.
