Deep tissue massage focuses on relaxing deeper muscles and connective tissue (fascia) that have been ischemic or injured due to inactivity or overuse. Sounds complicated? In other words deep tissue massage therapist lifts up the superficial muscles to create blood flow to deep muscle layers, so that what you call “knots” can relax and let go of your “pinched nerves”
Who Benefits From Deep Tissue?
It is designed for active people. Runners, weight lifters, cross-fitters, athletes and weekend warriors. People going to physical therapy, or recovering from surgeries can also greatly benefit from this therapy.
Where to get deep tissue massage?
Full body deep tissue massage is a rarity and 1 hour session would not be enough time. Most deep tissue massages are focused on an area where you experience discomfort. It is great on legs, shoulders, arms and neck.
Does Deep Tissue Massage Hurt?
It can be uncomfortable and intense but it doesn’t have to. It should feel like a “good hurt”. Make sure you communicate that with your massage therapist. It can be painful if you are dehydrated or have not had any bodywork done in a while.
Swedish VS Deep Tissue Vs Sports massage
Don’t confuse the terms “deep pressure” and “deep tissue” when choosing a massage service. Pressure is what a massage therapist uses in any massage modality like Swedish, Sports or Deep Tissue. Swedish massage is more oily less deep. Sports massage involves stretches and active participation.
