DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE
– A Deeper Connection –
Deep Tissue massage involves the manipulation of the deeper layers of muscle and soft tissue in the body. We use oils and direct pressure to relax the upper layer of muscle and soft tissue in order to reach the deeper layers.
The benefits of deep tissue massage can include relief from chronic muscle tension and reducing spasms.
Frequently Asked Questions
What are the side effects of a Deep Tissue Massage?The after effects of deep tissue massage can leave you feeling a little sore the following days, this can be due to the physical pressure applied to your muscle tissue and the nervous response to the newly aligned muscle fibres, however it should not be any cause for concern.
If at any time you feel that the pressure being applied is beyond your limit to allow the treatment, and you feel that you are enduring the treatment please speak up and let your therapist know. The best results occur at the deepest level that you can allow and any deeper we will be fighting your nervous system which can have adverse effects.
Can I claim any health rebates from my Deep Tissue Massage?When receiving deep tissue massage from a qualified remedial therapist health fund rebates will still be available.
How often should I get a Deep Tissue Massage?
For an average person dealing with minimal muscle tension and a mild level of stress, scheduling a 60 minute Deep Tissue Massage once or twice a month should suffice.
What is the difference between a Deep Tissue Massage and a Sports Massage?
The name deep tissue massage explains itself. Pressure is adjusted to manipulate the deeper tissue layers in the body. Deep tissue layers lay on top of the muscle and the therapist works on these layers, but not so deep as to work all the way through like a Sports Massage. This type of technique and pressure is still efficient enough to release any newly formed or small knots and to stretch stiff muscles. Big tension knots are caused by a build up over time, or because of injury and this is a job for a specially trained Sports Massage Therapist.
In order to prevent or improve sports injuries a Sports Massage manipulates the soft tissue (muscle) in order to prevent or improve any sports injuries. The Sports Massage Therapist has medical knowledge to efficiently and safely manipulate the muscles making sure to not damage the fragile tissue any further. Always ensure the massage therapist is qualified to perform a Sports Massage before making a booking.
