Within any deep tissue massage, a more intense pressure is used to help flush toxins, clear adhesions (areas of tissue that have become bound over time due to dehydration and damage), lengthen muscles, and relieve pain.

Trigger Point therapy uses the understanding that muscles produce excessively tight areas that have a shooting or traveling pain associated with them called referral pain. These referral pain sites often hide other trigger points. This therapy, while very effective is an intense form of body therapy utilizing deeply penetrating pressure to relieve pain cycles.
Myofacsial Release / Energetic therapy is another deliciously deep modality that can be far less intense than trigger point therapy. Myofascial Energetic massage allows the person receiving massage to experience very little discomfort while the practitioner works all the way down to the bone destroying admissions, lengthening tissues and clearing toxins from the tissues of the body.

But, it's the limbic system's ability to stimulate the circulatory and endocrine system that can have the most powerful effect on health and well being.
