A form of therapeutic massage and bodywork that aims to relieve tension in the deeper layers of muscle. Deep Tissue massage is highly effective for back and body pain relief, releasing chronic stress areas due to repetitive motions, posture issues, misalignment, and past lingering injuries.
Deep tissue massage is commonly requested for the treatment of pain relief. It is a less invasive alternative therapy to explore and if received consistently can help maintain healthy muscle tissue in order to prevent lifelong chronic pain. Due to the nature of deep tissue work, open communication during the session is very important to ensure you are not uncomfortable. Some people feel soreness a day or two after this type of massage, more commonly with people who do not receive massage on a regular basis.
Things to keep in mind when receiving deep tissue massage:
A misconception of deep tissue massage is “no pain, no gain”. There is a level of pain that can be helpful. Think of a “good” pain level this way. With 0 being no pain and 10 being extreme pain, you do not want your pain level above a 7. Although it may be what you think feels “needed” at the time, this can cause bruising and a lot of unnecessary soreness. Be sure to speak up at any time during the session if you would like the massage therapist to lessen the pressure.
Drinking plenty of water after the massage can be helpful in the removal of built up toxins that will have been released from the deeper muscles of the body and will help to prevent soreness.
