How Does Deep Tissue Massage Work?
Our Deep Tissue Massage is a one-hour session that applies deep finger pressure and slow, firm strokes to target deeper layers of muscles and fascia (connective tissue that surrounds the muscles) throughout the body. Because it targets the deepest layers of muscle and tissue, this type of massage is often used to treat a wide variety of physical ailments.
At the beginning of your session, the therapist typically warms up the muscles and tissue by applying light pressure to the targeted areas. Next, various techniques are employed to penetrate these areas at the deepest level. Two of the most common techniques are:
- Stripping: the application of deep, smooth-flowing pressure along the length of your muscle fibers.
- Friction: the application of pressure across the grains of the muscles – this is often used to break up scar tissue, break down muscles knots and adhesions, and realign the tissue fibers.
If you begin to experience any pain in the targeted areas during your massage, let your therapist know so the level of pressure can be adjusted appropriately.
