Deep Tissue Massage Therapy
If you’re suffering from stiffness and pain that cannot be solved from a Swedish Massage, then perhaps Deep Tissue Massage Therapy is the answer for you. During a Deep Tissue Massage the pressure is stronger and much more concentrated on the problematic areas which may lead to better relief of discomfort.
If you require this, be sure to book in with us.
What is Deep Tissue Massage Therapy?
Unlike many other techniques in massage therapy which is mainly focused on relaxation, deep tissue massage therapy aims to treat muscle pain and help ease stiffness.
It still can be used to help you unwind mentally, too. There’s a study from 2014 involving 59 people found that deep tissue massage therapy helped to reduce pain in many areas including chronic lower back pain, neck & shoulder pain.
Why Should I Get Deep Tissue Massage Therapy?
Headaches, neck cricks and shoulder stiffness – The Bermuda Triangle of physiology. This is where most people point to when they are in need of Deep Tissue Massage Therapy.
Hours of scrolling on smart-phones create the triangle from neck flexion, squinting and cradling which causes circulation to be sluggish and becomes difficult to turn the head left or right.
Occasionally people are a little afraid of the word “deep’ in association with massages.
Does that mean it hurts?
Absolutely not – it simply means identifying and releasing deep rooted structures that have become stuck and sensitive. The more in-depth massage has longer-lasting results and prevents discomfort.
How does Deep Tissue Massage Therapy work?
Deep tissue massage addresses these muscle imbalances to move breath from the upper muscles into the core of the body. This means freeing the upper neck, head and shoulders, and also addressing the stiff muscles in the sides and abdominal areas to enable diaphragm movement.
Deep tissue massage addresses more than just rubbing the skin to improve circulation of blood and fluids and relieve patterns of tension, stiffness and fatigue. This is therapy for what lies beneath – connective tissue, muscles, nerves and joints. It brings fresh nutrients in the form of blood and oxygen and helps disperse substances that cause soreness.
Who is Deep Tissue Massage Therapy ideal for?
Deep Tissue Massage Therapy is ideal for people suffering from headaches, neck cricks, and shoulder stiffness. This is where most people point to when they need a deep tissue massage. Hours of scrolling on smartphones create the triangle from neck flexion, squinting and cradling. Circulation is sluggish and it is difficult to turn to the left or right. That stiffness continues throughout the spine until a person feels stiff from head to toes.
