The daily stress of life can make the muscles become tense and tight. Deep tissue massage is the application of higher levels of pressure to the direct and surrounding areas where tension or tightness is found the most.

What are the benefits of deep tissue?

The benefits of deep tissue massage therapy are similar to Swedish massage. However, the deep pressure being applies is beneficial in releasing chronic muscle tension. The focus is on the deepest layers of muscle tissue, tendons and fascia (the protective layer surrounding muscles, bones and joints).

Deep tissue massage is done using deep finger pressure and firm, slow stokes.

Deep tissue massage has several therapeutic effects, such as:

  • Treatment of major muscle groups like the neck or lower back.
  • Relieve strain and treat injuries in your joints and tendon.
  • Alleviates Arthritis pain or symptoms.
  • Muscle rehabilitation
  • Breaks down scar tissue.
  • Alleviates Arthritis Pain or Symptoms.
  • Stress relief.
  • Increase in joint mobility.
  • Reduction in chronic pain.
  • Improved heart and lung function.
  • Lower blood pressure.

What can I expect from my deep tissue?

Therapists use a wide variety of techniques that include fingertips, knuckles, elbows, and forearms during the massage. Techniques are used to break apart scar tissue and break down muscle “knots”, also known as adhesions that can cause pain and inflammation.

Deep tissue massage helps to target the harder to reach muscles making this massage very powerful, but highly effective. It helps to improve posture and a better range of motion for joints and muscles. 

Deep tissue massage also focuses on damaged tissue and knots with its precise techniques to utilize the appropriate pressure to promote healing and relief of scar tissue from pain, tension, and chronic conditions or injuries.

What does the Deep Tissue Massage feel like?

Clients might feel some discomfort during a deep tissue massage and as well as after, but that should go away in a day. It is important to drink a lot of water after a deep tissue massage to help flush out waste products from the tissues. 

Deep tissue was ranked to be one of the most effective massages in relieving osteoarthritis pain and has received a top ranking for fibromyalgia pain.
