A Deep Tissue massage is stronger in intensity within your pain tolerance. It is best when addressing chronic pain and limited range of motion. In this case one session will offer some relief from pain and discomfort but will usually require repeat sessions to return comfort and normal range of motion.

Deep tissue massage is also good if you are an athlete or you have a higher than average body mass.
