Deep tissue massage is “the understanding of the layers of the body, and the ability to work with tissue in these layers to relax, lengthen, and release holding patterns in the most effective and energy efficient way possible.”

— Art Riggs, author of Deep Tissue Massage: A Visual Guide to Techniques
