The mind set of if 1 is good than 100 is better unfortunately is not always the case. In regards to bodywork many individuals like and want “deep tissue”. But there are times when deep/too much pressure would be counterproductive in facilitating the bodies healing process. As much as the individual on the table wants deep pressure, the hands and mind of the skilled therapist can better determine if deep pressure is truly warranted.
