If you are suffering from tensions and aches that cannot be solved by a classic Swedish massage, then a deep tissue massage might be the answer you are looking for!

During a deep tissue massage, the pressure is stronger and concentrated on the problematic area. The therapist may use their forearms, elbows, fingertips, and knuckles as well as their hands in order to break-up adhesions. A stiff neck and upper back, lower back pain, tight legs or sore shoulders, deep tissue massage works to realign the different layers of tissue, treating the tendons, ligaments and fascia (the protective layer of tissue which surrounds the bones, joints and muscles) as well as the muscles to release tension and provide pain relief.

 

The list of conditions that can be effectively treated is extensive and includes:

  • Chronic pain

  • Lower back pain

    • Limited mobility and postural problems

    • Recovery from injuries (e.g.  falls, whiplash, sports injury)

    • Repetitive strain injury, such as carpal tunnel syndrome

    • Muscle tension or spasm in the glutes, hamstrings, quadriceps, rhomboids, IT band, and upper back.                  

    • Sciatica and piriformis syndrome       

    • This therapy has been found to be more effective in relieving osteoarthritis pain than wide-range alternatives, including exercise and physical therapy, prescription medication, and over-the-counter drugs.

    • Deep tissue massage also received a top ranking for fibromyalgia pain. People often notice an improved range of motion immediately after a deep tissue massage.

 

It’s important to drink a lot of water after a deep tissue massage to help flush lactic acid out of the tissues.
