Deep Tissue Massage, as the name implies, focuses on deeper layers of muscle tissue and is designed to reach the deep sections of thick muscles, specifically individual muscle fibers.
Using deep compression and friction along the grain of the muscle helps unstick muscle fibers, allowing the release of both toxins and deeply held tension points. Specific hand positions and strokes are used to influence various tissues, while breath and movement techniques are employed to release muscular congestion. This combination helps loosen muscle tissues, releasing toxins from the muscle and stimulating blood and oxygen to circulate properly. This technique is corrective as well as therapeutic, and is beneficial for many physical problems including sports injuries and chronic pain.
Treatments generally take place on a massage table on bare skin, with a focus on specific areas of the body. There may be some soreness during or after the sessions, however, when the massage is done correctly this will improve within a day or two. It is important to drink plenty of water after a Deep Tissue Massage, as water aids in the elimination of those toxins released from the body.
Please talk with your massage therapist to see if Deep Tissue Massage would be beneficial for you.
