The main difference from a usual sports massage and a deep tissue massage is that the speed of the strokes of a deep tissue massage will be slower. This allows for the massage to be specific and get deep into the muscles that may have got scar tissue remaining from old injuries.
Scar tissue can stop nutrients from flowing along their normal path through the body which can cause inflammation leading to a build up of toxins. Breaking down of this scar tissue can decrease the risk of injury through improving mobility and a deep tissue massage can also reduce pain that this build up may have caused.
