Deep Tissue Therapy

How Does Advanced Structural Bodywork Compare To Other Styles of BodyWork?

Deep Tissue Therapy

Contrary to much popular opinion, deep tissue massage or therapy does NOT have to hurt to be effective.

Yet there are many styles, approaches and methods of “deep tissue” that it almost does not make sense to refer to them all under the same category.

In some approaches, it’s similar to classic Swedish massage but focuses primarily on relieving tension in the deeper layers of muscles and fascia tissue. The applied pressure is deeper and the strokes are very often much slower, depending on the therapist’s own personal style and training.

Special attention may be given to problem areas of chronic tension.
