• Greeks, Egyptians and the people of the Far Eastern region were the first to use this massage technique
  • Therese Pfrimmer (a physiotherapist from Canada) founded the principles of deep tissue massage in 1940
  • She devised this treatment to treat her own leg paralysis
  • After three months she was able to reverse the paralysis
  • The goal is to release tension in the body through slow strokes and deep finger pressure
  • Movement is slower and pressure is more intense than in a more superficial massage
  • The focus is to realign deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue
  • Benefits include increasing blood flow, oxygen circulation, and mobility
  • Decreases stress, chronic pain, high blood pressure, tight muscles, toxins from muscles, osteoarthritis pain, and postural problems
  • Recovery time from injuries will be decreased
