Deep Tissue Therapy Guide

Deep Tissue Therapy Guide

Are you someone who works out regularly but rarely takes a massage?  If so, you are doing your body, and your workouts, a disservice. Anyone who works out four or more times each week should include a deep tissue massage at least once a week.  If not, your muscles will be tight and your workouts will suffer.

Deep tissue massage is a wonderfully rejuvenating therapy that typically is used to alleviate aches and pains from exercise or musculoskeletal issues, such as strains and sports injuries, and to soothe tired or worked out muscles. 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 reduces tension in muscle and tissue.

Deep tissue massage offers both physical and psychological benefits. Unlike other massage techniques that focus on relaxation, deep tissue massage helps to treat muscle pain and improve stiffness. But it can still help you unwind mentally, too.

What happens during and after the massage?

Before your deep tissue massage, your massage therapist will want to know about your problem areas. A deep tissue massage can involve your entire body or just one area. Once ready, you’ll be asked to lie on your back or stomach, under a towel. The massage therapist will warm up your muscles using a lighter touch. Once you’re warmed up, they’ll start working on your problem areas. They’ll use deep kneading and stroking with varying amounts of intense pressure.

The massage will last for 60–90 minutes. While deep tissue may be more intense, you shouldn’t feel any pain or soreness.

Most clients find that the biggest after-effects of a deep tissue massage are sleepiness and thirst. Also, it is not unusual to get a headache after a deep tissue massage or even to feel slightly nauseous. This is to do with toxins on the move in your body. Drink plenty of water, relax, and both of these effects will ease. After a deep tissue massage, you can expect to feel a little tender in the area that has been worked. You shouldn’t feel active pain, and if you do, you should discuss this with the massage therapist.

When to avoid deep tissue Therapy?

Anyone with osteoporosis or cancer, infections, rashes, burns, or healing wounds, including surgical wounds should avoid deep tissue massage as the firm pressure used may cause dangerous side effects. You should also hold off on deep tissue massages if you’re pregnant.

Taking care of your physical health is great and it is equally important to take care of your you’re your body to heal and repair. Adding a regular deep tissue massage to your recovery routine will keep you feeling fit, strong, and ready to conquer your next challenge.
