What is a Deep Tissue Massage?
Deep tissue massage is a deeper more intense massage intended to work away soreness, adhesions, and knots. This technique uses slow, deep guided strokes and firm pressure designed to relieve severe tension and reach below the superficial muscles.
What Are Some Deep Tissue Massage Benefits?
Deep tissue massage is often recommended for individuals who experience consistent pain and soreness in both large and small muscle groups. It may be especially beneficial for people recovering from injuries to the muscle. The massage is not intended for relaxation or stress relief because it may cause discomfort. The intention is not for you to experience any pain, so if at any time during your massage you feel pain, let your certified massage therapist know so they can adjust the pressure or warm up the muscle more effectively.
How is a Deep Tissue Massage Different from a Swedish Massage?
While Swedish massage forms the basis for the deep tissue massage technique, these are two very distinct methods of massage. This is best demonstrated by understanding the difference in stroke technique and pressure that are used for each type.
During a deep tissue massage, the strokes are more forceful which releases tension in the deeper layers of muscle. The pressure for a Swedish massage is light to firm, but for deep tissue the pressure is more intense after your muscles are warmed up. When deciding between a Swedish vs. deep tissue massage, talk to one of the professionals at Hand & Stone. We always strive to provide a custom experience that meets your needs.
