Deep Tissue Massage

I continue to see my physiotherapist as I wait for surgery and this week he tried something new…..deep tissue massage of my calf. It was very sore it has to be said but today I feel loose enough to go to the gym so hopefully it will have a positive effect. After coming home so sore though I did plenty googling of the benefits and side effects and came across some interesting articles:
