Deep Tissue Massage 

An explanation of deep tissue massage

Deep tissue massage mainly treats musculoskeletal issues like strains and sports injuries. 

 

It involves applying sustained pressure using slow, deep strokes to target the inner layers of your muscles and connective tissues.

 

This massage method helps to break up scar tissue that forms following an injury and reduces tension in muscles and tissue.

A tremendous benefit to this type of massage is that it facilitates faster healing by increasing blood flow and reducing inflammation.

What are the Benefits of Deep Tissue Massage?

Deep tissue massage offers both physical and psychological benefits. Unlike other massage techniques focusing on relaxation, deep tissue massage helps treat muscle pain and improve stiffness. But it can still help you decompress mentally.

 

Deep tissue massage can aid with the relaxation process and benefit individuals with; high blood pressure, sports injuries, tennis elbow, fibromyalgia, plantar fasciitis, and sciatica.

What Happens During a Deep Tissue Massage?

Before your deep tissue massage, I want to know about your problem areas. A deep tissue massage can involve your entire body or just one zone.

 

Once ready, you’ll lie beneath a sheet on your back or stomach. Your level of undress is established on your comfort level, but the area I will be working on needs to be exposed.

 

I will begin by warming up your muscles using a softer touch. Once you’re warmed up, I’ll start working on your problem areas. I’ll use deep kneading and stroking with varying amounts of intense pressure.

Bottom Line 

Deep tissue massage is best suited for people who engage in highly physical activities, such as running, or those with an injury or chronic pain.

 

You may want to consider a Swedish Massage if you believe deep tissue massage is too much.

 

Swedish Massage is gentler and may be a better option if you have a low pain threshold or are looking for relief from tense muscles.
