Deep tissue massage involves the therapeutic assessment, manipulation and movement of locomotor soft tissue to reduce pain and dysfunction. This type of massage is much more appropriate for treating musculoskeletal pain conditions from accidents or sports injuries. Its objectives are to restore structural balance in the muscle groups throughout the body, and decompress arthritic or painful joints. Invariably, what happens is that muscle groups tend to shorten over time, due to prolonged poor posture or repetitive motions. These shortened muscle groups need to be stretched out or they will pull bones onto nerves and blood vessels, which can cause or contribute to all sorts of orthopedic conditions and chronic pain. Restoring structural balance throughout the body allows us to focus on both prevention and rehabilitation of musculoskeletal dysfunctions.
