What is a Deep Tissue Massage?

 

Almost everyone can agree that massages are amazing! They’re relaxing and beneficial in so many ways. But, it can get confusing when you go to book a massage and see all the different options available to you. Swedish massage, sports massage, deep tissue, shiatsu, Thai massage, cupping, reflexology. The list is almost as long as the history of massage itself. Each kind of massage has its own differences and benefits.

To help clear up some of the confusion, we’ll start with one of the kinds of massage you’ll probably have heard mentioned a lot – deep tissue massage.

What does a deep tissue massage involve?

A deep tissue massage, as the name suggests, targets deep into your muscle tissue. If you’ve ever had a Swedish massage, a deep tissue massage will be similar but often using a more intense and focused pressure. It targets existing areas of discomforts such as knots and tension in your muscles, so deep tissue massage typically targets a specific area rather than the whole body.

Who should get a deep tissue massage?

Since deep tissue massage focuses on existing tension or injury, it is not typically chosen by people who just want to relax. If you have a lot of tension in your shoulders and neck from sitting at a computer all day at work, or if you are recovering from an injury such as carpal tunnel syndrome, then deep tissue massage is the perfect option for you. It can help in treating pain of all sorts, including whiplash and other strains after a car accident and even pain associated with fibromyalgia.

What are its benefits?

Deep tissue massage helps to relieve the pain from conditions such as the ones listed above as well as speed up recovery from that injury or tension. There are a number of other benefits as well as this:

  • Improves mobility and flexibility
  • Lowers blood pressure
  • Reduces stress levels
  • Improves mood
  • Makes you feel more relaxed – mentally and physically!

Does deep tissue massage hurt?

Some people are put off from deep tissue massage because they don’t think they’ll be able to handle the pain. This should not be the case. It does use significant pressure, but this should cause discomfort at worst, not pain. If the pressure is too much for you, then you should tell your massage therapist and they can ease off. It is important that you stay relaxed throughout your massage for it to work effectively, so the pressure should never be painful as this will cause you to tense up.

If you’d like to book a deep tissue massage for yourself to see what it’s like, then contact us at Moonstone for massage services in Winston Salem, NC. Or you can buy one of our gift certificates as the perfect gift for a loved one.
