Deep Tissue Massage no mater in what form or style it is use is not about force. As the name suggest it is about working deep in to muscle tissue and even accessing the deeper muscles that are underneath the superficial muscle layers.

As a result causing more pain it is simple a vicious cycle on the body and unfortunately crating more injury, pain and trauma to the body and mind.
