Through a deep tissue massage, your scar tissues and muscle adhesions will break up which will relieve the knots that you feel when you have muscle pains. At the start of the massage session, your therapist will use light pressure and then work into deeper strokes later on which will help reduce the swelling that causes the knots and pain in your muscles.
