DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE
Deep tissue massage is a form of Swedish massage but uses advanced techniques to target specific injuries or problems.
Deep tissue massage helps relieve extreme muscle tension. It differs from Soft Tissue Therapy because the therapist will work on larger areas of the body in one session, rather than focussing on one specific target area.
You can ask the therapist for a lighter massage or they can apply more pressure for a deeper treatment – this can be discussed and adjusted during your session.
Before the treatment begins the therapist will ask a series of questions to ascertain which techniques to use and which areas of the body to treat.
Benefits of a deep tissue massage
- Reduces pain caused by chronic health conditions such as sciatica or repetitive strain injury
- It helps your body heal and recover from extreme tension by accessing inner layers of muscles and connective tissue
- Helps improve flexibility and postural problems
- You can think of it as a brilliant way to maintain relaxed, healthy muscles and in doing so avoid injury or pain
What to expect
It is sometimes the case that an ache in one area of the body is caused by tension in another and so the therapist may work on an area that seems to be unrelated.
This initial consultation with the therapist is very important and you should give as much information as possible about the specific issues that you need to have addressed. In particular if you have an injury or muscle pain try to think about when the pain started. What did you do to cause the injury? Did something happen that triggered the pain? This type of information will help the therapist in preparing your treatment plan.
After completing the consultation the therapist will leave you in the treatment room so that you can undress and get comfortable on the treatment couch. There will be towels for you to use to cover yourself with. During the massage the therapist will use the towels to cover your body and protect your modesty.
