Deep Tissue Massage

What is Deep Tissue Massage?

Deep tissue massage is a deeply relaxing healing modality that targets problem areas in the musculature. This highly effective method can be used to treat a number of injuries, strains, or knots deep within the musculoskeletal system. 

Using sustained pressure, slow and deep strokes reach the inner layers of your muscles and connective tissue. This can break up residual scar tissue, release tension, and significantly improve mobility. 

Deep tissue massage is shown to have countless benefits, especially when done consistently.

Experience the Benefits of Deep Tissue Massage

Deep tissue massage offers a wide range of emotional, physical, spiritual, and psychological benefits to its recipients. Not only does this mode of bodywork reduce pain, but it can also help you unwind and relax. 

When you receive deep tissue massage, you may experience:

  • Reduced levels of inflammation in the body
  • Improved circulation and blood flow
  • Improved range of motion
  • Relief from chronic pain or stiffness
  • Relief from pain caused by sports injuries or accidents
  • Improved quality of sleep
  • Improved lung function and ability to breathe easier
  • Better digestive health
  • A happier, more peaceful, and more relaxed state of being

Deep tissue massage is incredibly effective at targeting those hard-to-reach areas that cause us pain.

What to Expect in a Deep Tissue Massage

Never had a deep tissue massage before? No problem! We’re here to support you every step of the way.

A Worlds of Wellness massage therapist will discuss your medical history and goals with you. Depending on your unique needs, your massage therapist will target your problem areas or your entire body. Each massage is tailor-made to the client’s specifications. 

Using lighter pressure at first, your massage therapist will warm up and prepare your muscles. Once your body is warmed up, they’ll use slow, sustained, deep kneading and stroking with varying degrees of pressure. A deep tissue massage can last as long as 90 minutes.

How Often Should I Schedule a Deep Tissue Massage?

Depending on your massage therapist’s recommendation, you can schedule a deep tissue massage as often as every other week. Talk to your practitioner about what course of action would work best for you. Consistent deep-tissue massage is shown to have the most positive effects on the body. 

Schedule your deep tissue massage as often as you need.

How is a Deep Tissue Massage Different from Other Modalities?

Whereas some modalities are used to simply promote relaxation, a deep-tissue massage is meant to treat chronic pain. Deep tissue massage is intended to unwind spots of tension and pain, with the goal of eliminating pain permanently. 

Other massage modalities may be gentler or more subtle than deep tissue massage. Therapeutic massage, myofascial bodywork, reflexology, or raindrop technique tend to lean on the softer side when it comes to pressure. Deep tissue massage requires more periods of sustained pressure in order to reach connective tissue.

How Do I Know if I Need a Deep Tissue Massage?

Deep tissue massage is for you if:

  • You have a history of chronic pain
  • You experience joint pain or muscle pain
  • You are recovering from a sports injury or accident
