Deep tissue massage
Quite recently, this type of massage has become remarkably popular. According to Riggs, the proper understanding of functions of particular body layers and the possibility of affecting some of them in order to relax muscles and release tensions are possible thanks to deep tissue massage and grant remarkable results.
Said treatment type is sometimes improperly defined as an intense and invasive massage, which requires a masseur to use some force to reach certain tissues. It is not true. Deep tissue stimulation aims at the improvement of muscle performance by releasing tension, relaxing them, and increasing movement flow.
