How is a Deep Tissue Massage Performed?
There are a few stages in the process of a deep tissue massage. Your massage therapist will begin the process of the deep tissue massage by warming the effected muscles using an oil or cream into gently increase bloodflow to these areas. The massage therapist will then begin to work on the areas gently using a light pressure to begin to work into the muscle tissues and gently begin to loosen them.
As your massage therapist begins to loosen the outer fibers of muscle the muscle will begin to relax and soften. This will allow your massage therapist begin to work deeper into the muscle tissue and allow the massage therapist to get into the deep layers of muscle tissue.
Your massage therapist will use a range of techniques to get deep into the muscle tissue. These techniques will be a variety of deep pressure and trigger point techniques, active release techniques, muscle fiber stripping techniques and muscle friction techniques. This form of massage therapy is to break down tissue tension and adhesions that are in the deeper layers of the muscle tissue.
