Deep tissue massage therapy refers to techniques based upon basic Swedish massage. Both techniques use longer, smoother strokes that clients often find relaxing and enjoyable. The difference between deep tissue massage therapy and Swedish massage therapy is the depth in which soft tissues (skin and muscle) are challenged.
Individuals enjoying a firmer massage touch often prefer deep tissue massage therapy to Swedish massage therapy. The level of depth that is appropriate and enjoyable varies client to client. We strive at BodyWorks to accommodate the desired massage therapy pressure for each client individually. Never hesitate to let us know if the pressure is too much or not enough. We will always welcome and accommodate your feedback.
Individuals who are not experiencing any specific areas of concern and are seeking therapy to help maintain the health and vitality of the muscular structures will likely do well with deep tissue massage therapy.
