Deep tissue massage is a therapeutic massage technique that focuses on reaching deeper layers of muscles and connective tissues in the body. Unlike traditional relaxation massages that targets the superficial layers, deep tissue massage involves applying pressure, slow strokes, and friction to penetrate and release chronic muscle tension.
The primary goal of this type of massage is to address specific musculoskeletal issues and alleviate pain and discomfort. This type of massage is commonly used to treat conditions such as chronic pain, muscle tightness, and injuries resulting from sports or repetitive strain. It can also be beneficial for individuals with postural problems or those recovering from certain surgeries.
During a deep tissue massage, I use a will use my hands, fingers, elbows, forearms, or specialised tools such as cupping to apply pressure to the targeted areas. The intensity of the pressure can vary, but I will always keep checking in with you to make sure it is a therapeutic yet tolerable experience.
While this massage may cause some temporary discomfort, it is generally considered safe but it’s crucial for individuals with certain health conditions, such as blood clotting disorders or recent surgery, to check in with myself or with a healthcare professional before undergoing this massage.
Overall, deep tissue massage promotes improved blood circulation, increased range of motion, and the release of tension in the deeper layers of muscles, contributing to a sense of relaxation and well-being.
