Deep Tissue is a bit misunderstood sometimes. The term means different things to different people. If you haven’t had a professional massage before, I would suggest that you start with Swedish massage and give your therapist a lot of feedback about the pressure and intensity. See how your body reacts to the massage treatment over the next 48 hours or so.
Deep Tissue is Not about the pain.
I’m gonna say that again. Deep Tissue Does Not have to be painful in order to be effective and beneficial for you.
Deep tissue is what I might suggest for clients who:
Have specific issues with chronic pain.
Want to improve their range of motion, or are recovering from a sports injury
Just prefer a deeper technique (again, I’m not about causing people pain)
What: A focused session where most, or all, of your massage time is spent working on one or two problem areas
We will discuss your goals and expectations before the session.
We may try some range-of-motion tests, stretching, or posture assessments to determine your needs and evaluate how I could best help you today.
When: Your body is the best judge of how often to get Deep Tissue work.
One important thing to remember is that one session will likely not “fix” your problem. Just as working out regularly will, in time, help you to become more physically fit, a series of therapeutic massages will gradually help you to meet your health goals.
Feedback during and after the massage is very important and helpful in getting your goals met.
Again I’m gonna say this… “No pain/No gain, doesn’t apply here.” We can work together to help you feel better, without causing your muscles to go into guard mode.
