Is muscle therapy gentle?

Muscle and massage therapy, just like deep tissue massage, does use moderate pressure however this is extremely gentle and can be tailored to what each individual can tolerate and enjoy. Pressures are generally firmer than relaxation and Swedish massage and are more consistent with what you would expect from a sports massage or deep tissue massage.
