Deep tissue massage is primarily used to treat chronic pain and muscle and sports-related injuries. Deep tissue massageiinvolves the use of the palms and fingers to knead and manipulate your muscle tissue, the elbows and forearms are also used to apply increased pressure during a deep tissue massage. Deep tissue massage targets the inner layers of your muscles and is used to treat muscle and tendon injuries, pain, and stiffness in your major muscle groups and joints..
Before your deep tissue massage, your massage therapist will want to know about your problem areas. A deep tissue massage can involve your entire body or just one area.
Your massage therapist will warm up your muscles using gentle touch. Once your muscles are warmed up, they’ll start targeting your problem areas. They’ll use deep kneading and stroking with varying amounts of firm pressure.
It’ quite common to experience soreness for a few days after your massage after a deep tissue massage, using a heating pad or a cold pack wrapped in a towel may help to relieve soreness.
Deep tissue massage therapy is generally safe, however deep tissue massage uses very firm pressure and may not be safe for everyone.
Always consult your doctor before having a deep tissue massage if you:
Anyone with osteoporosis or cancer that’s spread to the bones should avoid deep tissue massage as the firm pressure used may cause a fracture.
You should also hold off on deep tissue massages if you’re pregnant. Gentler types of massage, such as Swedish massage, may be a better option.
If you have an open wound or skin infection of any kind, you’ll need to reschedule to avoid developing a new infection or making an existing one worse.
