Our massage therapists specialise in deep tissue massage in Slacks Creek. Deep tissue massage is a technique used to eliminate knots and adhesions within the muscles, targeting the deep layer of the muscle to get to individual muscle fibres causing the knot. A deep tissue massage is different to a remedial massage as it targets specific areas whereas a remedial session will treat the whole body.
At the beginning of the massage, the therapist will apply light pressure to warm up your muscles before using techniques like stripping and friction to target the muscle fibres causing the tension. While stripping involves applying pressure along the length of the muscle fibres, the friction technique applies pressure across the grain. You may experience tenderness after your session but this should only last 1 - 2 days maximum. Although this is not a relaxation massage, if pain persists after 2 sessions please let your therapist know. We also recommend that you drink plenty of water after your session to enable your muscles to release toxins into your bloodstream for your body to flush out.
Deep tissue massage can help with a variety of conditions including back pain, shin splints, knee pain, shoulder pain, plantar fasciitis and even symptoms of whiplash.
