Deep Tissue Massage

Deep Tissue Massage

Deep tissue massage is a therapeutic massage focusing on the deeper layers of muscle tissue. It is designed to release the chronic patterns of tension in the body through slow strokes and deep pressure on the contracted areas, either following or going across the grain of muscles, tendons, and fascia.

Deep tissue massage is often used to relieve chronic pain, increase range of motion, and alleviate muscle tension caused by injury or overuse. It is also commonly used to address specific areas of tension, such as tightness in the neck, shoulders, and back, or to help improve posture.

Your therapist may use various techniques, such as friction, compression, and cross-fiber friction, to apply pressure to the body’s deep tissues. Deep tissue massage can be somewhat intense and may cause some discomfort, but it should not be painful. Your therapist will adjust the pressure and techniques according to your comfort level, so communication is key! Let your therapist know right away if you feel discomfort or pain.

It’s important to note that deep tissue massage may not be suitable for everyone, especially those with certain medical conditions, such as recent surgery, inflammation, or osteoporosis. If you have any concerns, it’s best to consult your doctor before trying deep tissue massage.
