What is a Deep Tissue Massage?
Deep tissue massage is a deeper, more intense massage that works away soreness, adhesions, and knots. The deep tissue massage techniques involve slow, deep guided strokes and firm pressure designed to relieve severe tension and reach below the superficial muscles.
Deep Tissue Massage Benefits
We typically recommend deep tissue massages for individuals who experience consistent pain and soreness in large and small muscle groups. It may be especially beneficial for people recovering from injuries to the muscle. The massage is not intended only for relaxation or stress relief because it may cause discomfort due to intense pressure. If you feel pain at any time during your massage, let your certified massage therapist know, so they can adjust the level of intensity. When you have specific areas of your body that need relief, ask about a sports massage. The techniques administered during our athletic massages help stretch tight muscles and enable you to move more freely.
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 massage methods. The difference between these two therapies is best demonstrated by understanding the difference in stroke technique and pressure used for each type.
During a deep tissue massage, the strokes are more forceful, releasing tension in the deeper layers of muscle. The pressure for a Swedish massage is light to firm, but with deep tissue massage therapy, the pressure is more intense after your muscles warm-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.
