Collection: Deep Tissue Massage

Deep tissue massage is a type of massage therapy that focuses on relieving tension in the deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue. It's a more intense form of massage than Swedish massage, and it can be quite beneficial for those who suffer from chronic pain, muscle tension, and injuries.

During a deep tissue massage, the therapist will use slow, deep strokes to apply pressure to the targeted areas. They may also use their elbows, forearms, and knuckles to reach the deeper layers of muscle. The pressure can be quite firm, but it should never be painful. If you experience any pain during the massage, be sure to communicate with your therapist so they can adjust the pressure accordingly.

What to expect during a deep tissue massage

Before your deep tissue massage, the therapist will discuss your medical history and ask you about your specific areas of concern. They will also ask you about your pain tolerance.

During the massage, you will be asked to disrobe to your underwear or wear a loose-fitting garment. You will then lie on a massage table, and the therapist will cover you with a sheet or blanket.

The massage will typically last for 30 to 60 minutes. After the massage, it is important to drink plenty of fluids to help flush out any toxins that may have been released during the massage.

Things to consider before getting a deep tissue massage

If you are considering getting a deep tissue massage, be sure to talk to your doctor first to make sure it is safe for you.
