Deep Tissue Massage is a type of massage aimed at the deeper tissue structures of the muscle and fascia (connective tissue) of the body. 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 your Massage Therapist. Your Massage Therapist works on releasing chronic muscle tension and areas where your tissue has become too short, tight or bunched up, what Massage Therapists refer to as “ropey tissue.”

Your Massage Therapist does Deep Tissue to help structurally align your muscles. 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 Sports Massage. Sports Massage can be done as Deep Tissue Massage.

The smallest  amount of scar-tissue in the body can cause pain. Micro tears in the tissues, tendons or ligaments causes pain. Use ice immediately on your injured area(s). Applying ice will help your injury to heal and 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 massage therapy. Getting scar-tissue out of the body with massage is a gradual process. Your Massage Therapist works a little out at a time and then you must follow up with ice. Always consult your physician.

Will A Deep Tissue Massage Hurt?

Deep tissue massage is more pressure. It generally won’t hurt. 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 align 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?

The Best thing about receiving Deep Tissue Massage by a Licensed Massage Therapist is that the bodywork improves your body’s Muscular Structural Alignment. This kind of bodywork done correctly relieves your pain, although it’s also common to be sore after a Deep Tissue Massage because your tissues have been literally rearranged.

Use Ice on sore areas for 10-20 minutes after your 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 stretching, water, proper diet, cleansing (detoxifying) the body, working on your posture and ways of moving, weekly or monthly massage therapy and sometimes chiropractic adjustments.
