Deep Tissue Massage Therapy
Deep tissue massage is a massage technique that’s mainly used to treat musculoskeletal issues, such as strains and sports injuries
Deep Tissue Massage Therapy helps to break up scar tissue that forms following an injury and reduce tension in muscle and tissue.
Deep tissue massage helps to treat muscle pain and improve stiffness. But it can still help to you unwind mentally, too.
It’s not unusual to have some lingering soreness for a few days following a deep tissue massage. Using a heating pad or a cold pack wrapped in a towel may help to relieve soreness
Speak to your doctor before having a deep tissue massage if you:
- Have a history of blood clots or a clotting disorder
- Are taking blood thinners
- Have a bleeding disorder
- Have cancer or are undergoing cancer treatment, such as chemotherapy or radiation
