Deep tissue massage uses specific techniques that focus on the deeper layers of muscle tissue. It aims to release the chronic patterns of tension in the body using slow and deep pressure on the contracted areas. By following or going across muscular fibres, tendons and fascia, deep tissue massage helps to break up and eliminate scar tissue. Deep tissue massage usually focuses on more specific areas and may cause some soreness during or right after the massage, however, if the massage is done correctly you should feel better than ever within a day or two.
Why get a deep tissue massage?
When muscles are stressed they block oxygen and nutrients which results in inflammation that builds up toxins in the muscular tissue. Deep tissue massage helps loosen muscle tissues, releasing toxins and gets blood and oxygen circulating properly. Because many toxins are released it’s important to drink plenty of water after a deep tissue session to help eliminate these toxins from the body.
