What is deep massage?
Deep massage uses firm pressure and tends to be a full body service using either unscented or essential oil, or cream. In many cases, deep massage is still a Swedish massage. The therapist will use more of their body weight and focused skills to create a deeper pressure. Technique tends not to stray too far from the typical Swedish style (which uses effleurage, petrissage, kneading, vibration, rhythm of movement, strokes, tapping and compression); although they may be a little more intense than a typical light to medium pressure.
