Deep tissue massage – also known as deep massage or deep connective tissue massage – is a modern form of massage aimed at lifting tensions within the muscles and the fascia integrated with them. The purpose of this form of soft tissue work is to treat disorders in the musculo-fascial system, involving the skillful relaxation of the patient’s tissues, improving their mobility in relation to each other and lifting existing restrictions in the most effective and ergonomic (for the therapist) way possible.
