What is Deep Tissue Massage?
Deep tissue massage is a special massage therapy technique that focuses on the realignment and manipulation of the deeper layers of muscle and tissue.
It consists calculated strokes that are with the muscle grain or against it, performed slightly slower than other massage techniques, but with more pressure. So you will get a most intense massage experience, which offers instant relief from the pain and tension within specified areas.
The massage breaks down the pockets of tense tissues which cause inflammation or pain and prevent a full range of motion or proper blood circulation. All the pressure is focused on specific points, which releases much of the tension in the muscles, leading to a better range of motion and circulation.
What Problems Does Deep Tissue Massage Solve?
Deep tissue massage is very effective against any muscle related injuries, strains or sprains. It is recommended for sports injuries in particular.
It helps the muscles recover faster after suffering a blow, fall or other sorts of injuries. This makes it very popular with professional boxers, martial artists and other professional athletes.
Those who are suffering from chronic pain should also consider this massage. As said at the start, deep tissue massage is not meant for recreational purposes and is used to cure dysfunctions only.
This massage relieves much of the pain that patients suffer post-surgery and helps restore full functionality to the affected or operated area. It offers instant relief to those suffering from chronic pain and helps increase the mobility of the muscles.
What Should You Do Before the Deep Tissue Massage?
Once you schedule a session of deep tissue massage with us, remember not to have too much food before your appointment. Don’t take too much water or other liquids just before the massage.
This is important as a lot of pressure is applied during this massage, so you could feel deeply uncomfortable if your stomach is full.
Be relaxed, and arrive on time. Unwind before the massage starts and give your body enough time to relax. Let the massage therapist do what’s needed to be done, to offer instant relief from the pain that you are feeling.
What Should You Do After the Deep Tissue Massage?
Following the massage, make sure to have lots of water so that your body can recover and all toxins are completely removed from the system. You might consider applying ice packs to certain inflamed areas, if the massage therapist says so.
