Deep tissue massage is a massage technique that’s mainly used to treat musculoskeletal issues, such as strains and sports injuries. It involves applying sustained pressure using slow, deep strokes to target the inner layers of your muscles and connective tissues. This helps to break up scar tissue that forms following an injury and reduce tension in muscle and tissue.
It may also promote faster healing by increasing blood flow and reducing inflammation and pain.
Important side note (communicate with therapist so the pressure doesnt get to much)
What is too much pressure?
There are a lot of horror stories out there about massage therapist beating up a client to much. However there is also the opposite where the client ask for deep pressure and they were as some clients would say (petted). So how do you as a client guarantee to get the most out of your massage session? Well here are a few tips:
1. The pressure should never be so much that your flying off the table!
2. The pressure should feel like a good pain not a "I cant wait for this to end type" of treatment.
3. If you haven't had a massage before then deep tissue isn't where to start. Try out trigger point therapy!
4. A general rule I go by is a 7 out of 10 in pain is the max you should feel. (Its more beneficial to have a massage back to back weeks so the therapist can gradually get deeper into the muscle than to have a super deep session.
5. Most importantly (communicate with your therapist). Dont just take a beating. Our therapist here are usually pretty good at knowing how deep and communicating.
