Deep tissue massage involves fairly intense muscle manipulation that can offer considerable healing that aids in restoring mobility and relieving chronic pain. By breaking down muscle adhesions that often build up after an accident or illness, deep tissue massage can relax muscle tissue and relieve pain.
Unlike a “standard” massage which is aimed at providing relaxation or stress relief, deep tissue massage is usually employed in order to work on specific trouble spots after an injury such as whiplash or a fall. Other injuries or conditions which deep tissue massage can be helpful with are: fibromyalgia, osteoarthritis, chronic pain, muscle spasms, muscle spasticity and more.
Before this type of massage, your massage therapist will ask you about your injury, illness or complaint in order to understand how you are being negatively impacted and how to best target this therapy to your issue to help you best.
Deep tissue massage might cause some initial discomfort. Please inform your therapist about your pain tolerance level before your session and if you experience discomfort during your session.
