A deep tissue massage is a type of therapeutic massage that focuses on reaching the deeper layers of muscles and connective tissues. Unlike a relaxing massage, which focuses on general relaxation, a deep tissue massage is performed with more intense pressure and targets specific areas of the body that may be tense, sore, or injured.
During a deep tissue massage, our therapist uses stronger and slower pressure techniques, such as deep kneading, friction, and myofascial release, to work the muscles and connective tissues. These techniques help break up adhesions and knots in muscles, release built-up tension, and promote healing.
It is important to note that a deep tissue massage can be more intense and, in some cases, may cause some discomfort or a feeling of pressure. However, our therapist should always adjust the pressure according to your needs and tolerance. It is essential to communicate with the therapist during the massage to ensure that the pressure is appropriate and that you are comfortable at all times.
A deep tissue massage can be beneficial in relieving chronic muscle pain, sports injuries, postural problems, and tensions deep in the body. It can also help improve blood circulation and mobility, as well as reduce inflammation and promote tissue healing.
