Swedish Deep Tissue Massage

Swedish Deep Tissue

If you’re new to massage, you may wonder about the difference between Swedish massage and deep tissue massage. While a traditional Swedish massage is usually used for relaxation and stress relief, deep tissue is used for specific muscles that feel achy or sore. These two types of massage compliment each other well and can be used in conjunction with one another.

There are many people who believe that deep tissue massages mean heavy pressure, however, this isn’t always the case. When performed by a skilled massage therapist, a deep tissue massage is performed with enough pressure in a very precise manner to loosen tight muscles and reach deeper tissues of the body to release tension.

Benefits of Swedish Deep Tissue Massage 

There are numerous health benefits of deep tissue massage. These include:

  • Accelerated healing of injured muscles
  • Relief from chronic pain associated with tight muscles
  • Improved organ function
  • Improved athletic performance
  • Relief of stress and anxiety
