Deep Tissue Massage is a technique that focuses on the deeper layers of muscle tissue. It aims to relieve tension in the body through slow strokes and deep finger pressure on the contracted areas, either following or going across the fibres of the muscles and fascia.
One of the most relevant benefits of this massage style is that it helps to rehabilitate injured muscles. Over time, Deep Tissue Massage can help break up and eventually erase scar tissue in the body that is associated with ongoing pain and stiffness. It is also highly recommended after surgery as part of a recovery treatment.
Deep Tissue Massage is often recommended for individuals who have a physical injury or experience consistent pain or those who are involved in heavy physical activity, like athletes. The technique is often used in combination with other massage procedures such as those used in Remedial and Sports Massage and it usually focuses on more specific areas and may cause some soreness during or right after the treatment. Do not worry, though, because you should feel its beneficial effects after a day or two!
For whom do we recommend it?
This massage style is highly recommended for clients with a very active and stressful lifestyle or chronic muscle pain. It relieves tension related headaches and tackles symptoms associated with stress, too.
