    These seem to be the 2 most common forms of massage, but I am not sure of the difference. Also, I need to find someone for a massage in Garland, Texas. I found a few people who do massage in Garland, but how do you know if they are any good without going in for a massage?

    A deep tissue massage is exactly what it sounds like. It focuses on really massaging all of the tissues in your body. This massage uses more pressure than a swedish massage. A swedish massage is more relaxing because it uses lighter pressure. Both are good. I had a swedish massage yesterday!

    One of the most common questions :) LiveLaughLove put it very simple. The amount of pressure makes the difference. There are deep tissue therapist that use specific techniques though.
