Deep tissue massage is aimed at the deeper
tissue structures of the muscle and fascia. Deep tissue uses some of the same movements as Swedish massage, but is done
with the massage therapists elbow, back of the hand (soft fist) as opposed to the open hand movements of swedish style
massage. Pressure will generally be more intense with deep tissue bodywork.
Some massages that use deep tissue
also include Rolfing, Structural Integration which is offered my MassageHealthWorks.com, Chiropractic Massage, Orthopedic Massage, Massage used in Physical Therapy, deep hot stones
