Deep tissue massage is the type of massage that many describe as slightly painful — but in a “hurts-so-good” kind of way. 

In a deep tissue session, massage therapists use firm strokes to work deeply into the fascia and muscle tissue. Sometimes, they might also use gentler, more sustained pressure to work through knots and other problem areas. 

The deep tissue style can be extremely soothing — but on top of that, many people find that it also:

  • Boosts mobility 
  • Relieves aches and pains 
  • Alleviates stress
  • Promote healthy recovery after injuries
