What is a Deep Tissue Massage?
Drift away with a relaxing and invigorating deep tissue massage. Deep tissue massage works on treating muscle pains, stiffness and soreness.
It is a massaging technique that focuses on the deep layer of muscle tissues. The therapist uses their fingers to apply pressure to these muscles till they relax and release the tension in them. This may cause some discomfort but it ensures that tensions are released completely from deep layers of muscles resulting in improved blood flow and flexibility in adjacent tissues over time.
These deep tissue massages are not appropriate for certain people with deep vein thrombosis or with high risk of blood clots in veins, deep cuts or deep wounds in tissues, bleeding disorders, heart conditions and with extreme osteoporosis.
People with acute infections are advised against deep tissue massages till their condition is resolved completely. Pregnant women are also advised to avoid deep tissue massages because it may cause contractions that lead to labor pains.
What to expect in your first massage session?
This massage form requires the therapist to use hard pressure which works well for people who have naturally stiff bodies due to old age or sports-related injuries. However, deep tissue massage can also be very painful for people who have a low pain threshold and may lead to bruising in some cases.
Your massage therapist will apply oil and warm up the muscles gently by applying light pressure. Other techniques like stripping and friction are used to release adhesions in the tissue and realign tissue fibres. The targeted areas are massaged with slow strokes and deep pressure.
Ideally, deep tissue massages last for an hour. You might experience some discomfort as the knots are released. Our therapists will work around your pain tolerance. Just tell us how you would like your massage to be and
