Deep Tissue is a generic term used to describe bodywork which goes below superficial connective tissue with the intent of breaking up old structural patterns and allowing the free flow of nutrients and oxygen in the blood. Deep tissue requires that the therapist apply a considerable amount of pressure which in some cases may cause some discomfort.
