Deep Tissue Massage
Similar to a Swedish Massage, Deep Tissue Massage releases chronic muscle tension, focusing on realigning the deepest layers of muscles and connective tissue with slow strokes and firm pressure. Deep Tissue Massage is recommended for clients who want to focus on specific concerns such as chronic aches and injury rehabilitation. It is also helpful for relieving osteoarthritis pain.
Are Deep Tissue Massages Painful?
Many people tend to associate pain with effectiveness. You may experience minor discomfort as your RMT works on scar tissue or adhesions, but a Deep Tissue Massage shouldn’t be painful. When in pain during a massage, your body may tense up as a response, creating difficulty for your RMT to make the treatment effective. Always notify your massage therapist when experiencing any pain to allow them to adjust their technique, or additionally prep the tissue of that specific area of concern.
Things To Keep In Mind Before Booking Your Deep Tissue Massage:
Please check with your doctor before booking a Deep Tissue Massage if you’ve recently had surgery, chemotherapy, have blood clots or prone to forming blood clots, or if you have any other medical concerns.
