What to Expect During a Deep Tissue Massage
Deeper pressure, employing firm and slow strokes, is used to reach innate layers of muscle and fascia, the connective tissue surrounding muscles. Like with all massage, you can give feedback to your therapist at any time regarding the pressure used, but expect a firm touch as your muscles are worked with. In addition, active and passive stretching techniques may be incorporated to increase your range of motion. In the days after your appointment, you’ll begin to feel the benefits of deep tissue therapy.
This massage usually focuses on specific problems and is extremely beneficial in alleviating chronic pain and muscle tension by breaking up scar tissue and physically breaking down muscle “knots” or adhesions, which are the bands of painful rigid tissue which can disrupt circulation and cause limited range of motion, inflammation, and pain. Potential side effects of this massage may include soreness, fatigue, and some general aching and bruising.
