Deep tissue massage is to use more forceful motions to get deeper into a muscle to work out knots and tension. The strokes are more deliberate, and pressure is put on the muscles until they push back. A massage should not be painful so let your massage therapist know if you are too uncomfortable at any time. Deep tissue massage may help problems related to poor posture and can improve abnormal muscle tone.
