Deep Tissue massage therapy focuses on the deepest layers of muscle tissue, tendons and fascia. During Deep Tissue therapy, the deeper pressure is beneficial in releasing chronic muscle tension.
A study in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine found that after a single 45-60 minute deep tissue massage, people's blood pressure fell. Additionally, a 2010 meta-analysis in the Journal of Clinical Psychiatry found that massage modalities, such as deep tissue, reduce stress hormone levels and heart rate but also had positive effect on mood and relaxation by triggering the release of Oxytocin and Serotonin.
SunState BodyWorks™ combines deeper tissue treatments, such as Sports Massage, with products like Deep Muscle Therapy or Cold Pain Relief Gels.
