Deep Tissue Massage Maui

massageDeep tissue massage is a type of massage aimed at the deeper tissue structures of the muscle and fascia (connective tissue). Deep tissue massage uses similar techniques as Swedish massage, but the pressure is deeper. Deep Tissue is a more specific type of therapeutic massage that addresses the structural alignment of the body. It’s a plus to combine Hot Stone Massage with Deep Tissue Massage because the heat of the stones used on the body makes the tissues more pliable and therefore easier to get into for the Massage Therapist. The Massage Therapist works on releasing chronic muscle tension and areas where your tissue has become too short, tight or bunched up, what therapists refer to as “ropey tissue.” Neuro-muscular therapy (NMT) massage therapy is a deeper style of massage that works scar-tissue (adhesions) out of the body. It’s a specialized form of deep tissue massage. The slightest amount of scar-tissue may cause pain. Micro tears in the tissues, tendons or ligaments cause pain. Use ice immediately on your injured area(s). Applying ice will not only start helping the injury to heal but it will also keep the injury from getting worse. It’s best to discontinue activity when you’re injured. When it’s the right time  (72hrs or longer, depending on the severity of the injury) you can receive NMT massage therapy to help the scar-tissue be released. Getting scar-tissue out of the body with massage is a gradual process, and so it requires several treatments. The therapist works a little out at a time and then you must follow up with ice. Always consult a medical doctor.

Will A Deep Tissue Massage Hurt?

Deep tissue massage is more pressure. It can be slightly uncomfortable if you’re not used to getting deep-tissue. You must always tell your Massage Therapist if the pressure is too much. Rolfing is a specialized form or Deep Tissue Massage. Rolfing is very deep. It’s a modality of massage used to move the connective tissue (fascia) of the body.The purpose of Rolfing is to improve the structural alignment of the body. A Rolfing session can be painful and will definitely leave you sore the next day and possibly for several days. It’s important to use ice for ten to 20 minutes on any areas that are sore after a massage.

How Fast Will I Get Results With A Deep Tissue Massage?

It’s important to be realistic about what one massage can achieve. Many people ask for more pressure, thinking that if the therapist just pushes harder, they can get rid of all their knots in an hour. This just won’t happen. In fact, undoing chronic ropey tissue and returning the body to better structural alignment is best achieved with an integrated program that includes exercise, stretching, water, proper diet, cleansing (detoxifying) the body, working on your posture and ways of moving, relaxation techniques, chiropractic care, and a regular regimen of massage therapy.

Finally, while deep-tissue is certainly valuable, you should be aware that gentle styles of massage like cranio-sacral therapy can also produce profound release and realignment in the body. Come experience a Massage on Maui.
