Deep Tissue Massage is a form of bodywork that aims to relieve tension in the deeper layers of tissue in the body.

Keep in mind that soreness is pretty common after the treatment, and that plenty of water should be ingested to aid with the flushing and removal of toxins that will have been released from the deep tissue during the session.
