Deep Tissue massage is a variation of the Swedish Massage technique, utilising a lot of the same movements, but with a firmer pressure to work deeper into the muscle groups. It also includes some joint manipulation and pressure points. This massage is ideal to help ease chronically tense and contracted areas, muscle cramps, spasms and minor muscle injuries. Deep tissue massage is ideally suited to someone who does a lot of physical activity, has a repetitively strenuous occupation or prefers a deeper, firmer massage. Please note, however, that this is not as firm or as specifically targeted as a Sports Massage and should not be used as a substitute for physiotherapy.
Although the massage is typically more uncomfortable than classic Swedish massage, it should still be relaxing and not actually cause pain. Please feel free to speak up if the pressure is too much for you and it will be adapted accordingly. It is very important to remember to keep yourself warm after a deep tissue massage and to drink a lot of water to help flush the released toxins out of your system. If not you will probably feel quite sore and nauseous the following day. It is possible that you might feel some tenderness in the muscles the day after a deep tissue massage even if you do drink plenty of water and this is just because of the level of waste products removed from the tissues. Don’t worry, it will pass quickly.
