Deep tissue massage involves slow, deep strokes to target deeper muscles and connective tissues, releasing painful knots, breaking down scar tissue, and reducing any tension present in the muscles and tissues. Before your deep tissue massage, tell your massage therapist about your problem areas. Your therapist can target these to have you feeling better in no time.
While the strokes used in deep tissue massage resemble those of a Swedish massage, therapists use additional pressure to effectively target deeper tissues and address the source of chronic pain or injury. Throughout your deep tissue massage, your therapist will use four main techniques:
Deep tissue massage greatly benefits the receiver's physical and mental health. You can expect your health to improve in the following ways after a deep tissue massage:
Helps lower cortisol levels and increases oxytocin, the happiness hormone, to leave you feeling relaxed and calm.
Improves local circulation and reduces muscle tension in painful areas to decrease chronic muscle pain.
Reduces stress and tension, which impacts blood pressure.
Breaks up scar tissue, which improves flexibility and range of motion around the scar tissue.
Helps with pain, stiffness, limited range of motion in joints, and sleep issues.
Stretches tight or twisted muscles and facilitates the elimination of toxins from the muscle fibres.
Really, really good massage. My massage therapist was extremely skillful and made my day so much better. I can't thank her enough. I'm looking forward to my next massage with her. The app is pretty great too!
Imagine going to Los Angeles and getting an in-room massage and then coming back to New York and using the same app... These guys have spoiled me big time and I'm loving it...the therapists on the app are punctual and skillful
You guys are the real deal. Never before have I been able to find the right combination of price and quality. Most of the other options are either too expensive, or too meh.....me and some of my friends are superfans now.
