Deep Tissue Massage is a technique in which a firmer pressure is applied throughout the massage routine.  While many people think this technique is not as relaxing, it all depends on the experience of the massage therapist.  If the deep tissue massage is done just right, it will leave you feeling relaxed and also have your moving better.  Deep tissue massage will tend to decrease pain and increase your overall range of motion.  This is why several people are turning to enjoy a deep tissue massage to take care of their aches and pains.  The benefits of a deep tissue massage are far more beneficial then compared to a Swedish massage.  There are very few deep tissue massage side effects especially when massage is done by an experienced massage therapist.  An experienced therapist will find out all areas of the body that need to be worked on and can help you understand why your body accumulates pain and tension in certain areas.
