In this Deep Tissue Massage video, a massage therapist demonstrates a couple deep tissue massage techniques, deep tissue massage can be performed with a massage therapist fingers, hands, forearms or elbows.
Before working deeply on any part of the body it is important to warp up the muscle tissue with some gliding strokes. After warming up the tissue, begin isolating specific muscles to apply a deeper pressure.
The tension of the muscle tells how much pressure can be applied without causing more discomfort or irritating muscles and central nervous system. There are many deep tissue techniques such as myofascial release, deep stripping, trigger point release, and cross-fiber friction.
