Deep Tissue Massage is used in treating chronic muscular tension through direct deep-seated pressure and slow strokes, applying across the grain of the muscles not with the grain. The pressure should be firm enough for you to feel benefit, but not extreme discomfort. Please inform your therapist if the pressure isn’t to your liking. Call us on 0800 774 7307 for advice on the best course or treatment for you if you are unsure which massage is right for you.
A deep tissue massage is a type of massage that uses slow, deep pressure to target the deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue.
A deep tissue massage can help relieve chronic muscle tension, improve circulation, and reduce inflammation.
It is normal to experience some discomfort during a deep tissue massage, but it should not be overly painful. The therapist should adjust their pressure if it becomes too intense.
If you are experiencing chronic muscle tension, pain, or limited mobility, a deep tissue massage may be beneficial.
During your first deep tissue massage, the therapist will ask about your medical history and any areas of concern. They will then apply deep pressure to targeted areas, which may be uncomfortable at first but should gradually become more tolerable.
It is recommended to drink plenty of water before and after your massage and to avoid eating a heavy meal beforehand. Wear comfortable, loose-fitting clothing and communicate any areas of concern with your therapist.
After a deep tissue massage, you may feel sore or achy for a day or two. It is important to drink plenty of water and rest to allow your body to recover.
