What is a Therapeutic Massage?

A therapeutic massage can have a relaxation or deep tissue focus or anything in between. A therapeutic massage is often received for the mobilization of soft tissue (such as muscle and fascia) to restore normal functional use. It can be used to alleviating soft tissue discomfort associated with everyday and occupational stresses, chronic pain syndromes and muscular over-use injuries. Massage Therapy can also help reduce the development of painful and muscular patterning if employed early enough after accidents involving trauma and injury. A Deep tissue massage is a more focused type of massage, as the therapist works to release chronic muscle tension, adhesions and trigger points. Generally the pressure is more intense.
