Deep Tissue Massage is a type of massage that is aimed at the deeper tissue structures of the muscle and fascia, also called connective tissue. This type of massage is helpful for chronic and tense areas such as stiff necks, lower back tightness and sore shoulders. Using specific strokes, a Deep Tissue Massage is both powerful and vigorous to get into the deeper layers of muscle tissue.
Deep Tissue Massage uses many of the same movements and techniques as in Swedish Full Body Massage, but the pressure will generally be more intense. It is also a more focused type of massage, as the therapist works to release chronic muscle tension or knots (also known as “adhesions.”). This type of Massage is also known as a Sports Massage.
Sports Massage uses the same techniques and is typically used before, during, and after athletic events. The purpose of the massage is to prepare the athlete for peak performance. It does this by draining away toxins, helping to reducing swelling and muscle tension, improving flexibility and reducing the risk of sustaining injuries.
Regular treatments can help break down scar tissue, remove the build-up of toxins, improve mobility and reduce the risk of further injury.
Will A Deep Tissue Massage Hurt?
It shouldn’t hurt, but it’s likely to be a bit more uncomfortable than a classic Swedish Full Body Massage. The Therapist will always ask you if the pressure is ok for you BUT you should always feel free to speak to the therapist if the pressure is too much for you.
Unlike Swedish massage therapy, which is used for relaxation, Deep Tissue Massage and Sports Massage can help with specific problem, such as:
Headaches caused by muscular tension
Recovery from injuries
Muscle tension or spasm
Treatments can last for 30, 60, or 90 Minutes and can include parts or the whole of the body. The massage is performed with Almond Oil on a professional massage table. The client can decide if they want to be draped with towels or un-draped.
