Deep Tissue Massage

What is Deep Tissue Massage?

Deep Tissue Massage (Therapeutic Massage) involves working and acting on the body with pressure – structured, unstructured, stationary, or moving – tension, motion, or vibration, done manually or with mechanical aids. Massage can be applied with the hands, fingers, elbows, knees, forearm, feet, or a massage device. Massage can promote physical and mental relaxation and well-being, and can be a recreational activity.
