By working through the layers of muscle as the muscles have become less restricted, the deeper muscles also relax and lenghten. Without proper response to the condition of the tissue, muscles will naturally resist compression and friction, which may result in pain long after the massage has ended.
Between having chosen a massage school that prepared me well and my preference for making a difference, deep tissue massage has become the style of massage therapy that my practice is best known for. While I am capable of applying a lot of pressure for those clients who both prefer and will benefit from it, deep tissue massage should never be painful. My goal with deep tissue techniques is to improve the natural function of muscles which have become less responsive due to repeated use or structural challenges.
With a "modular" education system being implemented in many massage schools, deep tissue massage is no longer taught to new therapists.
