Deep tissue massage is an exceptionally regenerating massage therapy typically used to diminish aches and pains. These pains and aches can be because of workout or musculoskeletal issues. Like other massage therapies, deep tissue massage is also a stress and tension relieving therapy, mainly stress caused by sports injuries and exercise—it creates a sense of well-being and relaxation and reduces inflammation.
Deep tissue massage
What happens in this massage
Before starting the massage, the therapist asks you about your problem areas. Moreover, a deep tissue massage is performed on either the entire body or just the problematic areas.
Once you are ready, the therapist will ask you to lie down on the massage table on your back or stomach under a sheet. Your level of undress depends on your comfort, but the problem area needs to remain uncovered. Then the massage therapist will warm your muscles with some gentle touches. Once the muscles are warmed up, the therapist will start to pressurize the problem areas. Therapists use kneading and stroking techniques with various intensities of pressure.
Advantages of deep tissue massage
