Deep Tissue Massage
Deep tissue massage targets chronic tension in muscles that lie far below the body's surface. Deep muscle techniques involve slow strokes, direct pressure or friction movements that go across the muscle grain.
What Are the Benefits of a Deep Tissue Massage?
A deep tissue massage can help with joint mobility, reduce blood pressure, break down scar tissue, and help relieve stress and arthritis symptoms. The deep pressure used in this type of massage therapy can also reduce chronic muscle tension.
Does a Deep Tissue Massage Hurt?
A deep tissue massage shouldn’t hurt, but it’s important to stay hydrated before and after the massage. You should communicate with our therapists to ensure you are comfortable during the process.
How Often Should I Have a Deep Tissue Massage?
How often you should receive this type of massage will depend on the certain conditions being treated. If you are suffering from a severe injury, you may want to get a deep tissue massage up to three times a week. If the deep tissue massage is to help with muscle tension or stress relief, you may only need a session once a month.
Is a Deep Tissue Massage Safe?
Occasionally, a deep tissue massage may not be the best for every situation. If you are pregnant, have high blood pressure, or are ill, then it’s important to consult our chiropractors to see if a deep tissue massage is right for you.
What Is the Difference Between a Deep Tissue Massage and a Regular Massage?
A regular massage is designed for relaxation and stress relief. It can help improve blood circulation and immune system functions. A deep tissue massage uses more pressure in order to get into the deepest layers of the tendons and muscle tissues. Both help with stress and anxiety, but a regular massage will be better for anxiety and stress relief, while deep tissue massages are beneficial for sore muscle treatment.
