Therapeutic massage consists of assessment of injury and dysfunction and manual massage of the muscles, fascia, and connective tissues to loosen tissue, restore tissue balance, break down adhesions or scar tissue, and release trigger points in the muscle.

Sometimes when the therapist works quite deep the client will experience some muscle soreness after the treatment, which may last 1-2 days. The tissue is notably looser even though it is a bit tender.

It is important that the client communicates with the massage therapist if they feel the work is too deep or not deep enough.
