Deep Tissue Massage:
Deep Tissue Massage is an often misunderstood modality. Deep Tissue is a highly localized, slow pressure treatment that is often performed without the use of oils or lotions. Despite its well know Cousin Swedish / Circulatory massage this modality seeks to break-up adhesion between the muscle and fascia layers and affect the muscles on a more therapeutic level.
A deep tissue session focuses on specific problem areas. Your therapist will apply slow, deep pressure using the palm, elbow, forearm and thumbs to specific areas in an attempt to free the body of adhesion’s and allow more movement. Deep Tissue session will last up to 90 minutes and can address only a few areas rather than the whole body. When receiving a treatment it is important to remember to breathe and communicate with your therapist. Ideally a therapist will ride the pleasure / pain barrier that ever so enjoyable ‘hurts-so-good’ feeling. If you find yourself tensing up or holding your breathe it is important to let go, if the pressure is too much and causing you to tense up, tell your therapists so they can adjust their pressure accordingly.
After treatment drink lots of water to help toxins move out of the body and take it easy for the next day to allow the body to heal. The body can be sore for a few days afterwards (especially if it is your first massage treatment) but observe your improved movement and posture. Remember a lifetime of stress cannot be corrected in one session; Multiple treatments can create optimal health.
If you are suffering from chronic pain deep tissue can be a viable solution for lasting results. Enjoy a healthy pathway to better health and easy of movement.
