What’s a Deep Tissue Massage?
If you suffer from stiff neck, low back pain, and sore shoulders then we completely recommend you a Deep Tissue massage. During this massage, low and deep strokes are applied to different areas of the body. At first, it might seem like this massage works just like a Swedish massage, the significant difference is that a deep tissue massage is used to break scar tissue that produces tightening, inflammation, and knots.
This massage has different techniques to it, stripping and friction are most known. During stripping the therapist deep pressure over the length of the muscle using his or her elbows, forearms, knuckles, and even thumbs. This is another characteristic that differentiates this massage from Swedish massage because Swedish tends to be applied with the hands and the palms. The other technique of Deep Tissue massage is known as friction. As its name implies friction is applied along the muscle to release knots and adhesions.
If you’re interested in a Deep Tissue massage you have to be aware that it might feel a little bit more uncomfortable than a Swedish massage since the techniques and objectives are different. Once you’re in it, talk to your therapist if the pressure you’re feeling seems like too much for you. You must know that you’ll feel slightly sore after the massage, probably the day after. Try to drink as much water as you can because it’ll help your muscles in the recovering process.
