What is a Deep Tissue Massage ?

Deep tissue massage is a therapeutic massage technique that focuses on the deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue in the body. It uses slow, firm strokes and deep pressure to release chronic muscle tension, knots, and adhesions.

Unlike a traditional massage, which uses lighter pressure and is more focused on relaxation, deep tissue massage targets specific areas of tension and pain. It is often used to treat chronic pain, injuries, and stiffness in the neck, shoulders, back, and legs.

During a deep tissue massage, the therapist may use their elbows, forearms, and fingertips to apply pressure and work the deeper layers of muscle tissue. The therapist will also use techniques such as friction, stretching, and trigger point therapy to release tension and restore mobility.

Benefits of Deep Tissue Massage

Relief from chronic pain:

Deep tissue massage can be an effective way to manage chronic pain and stiffness in the neck, shoulders, back, and legs.

Increased mobility:

By releasing tension in the deeper layers of muscle tissue, deep tissue massage can help increase your flexibility and range of motion.

Improved circulation:

The pressure applied during a deep tissue massage can help stimulate blood flow and oxygen to the muscles, promoting overall healing and well-being.

Stress relief:

As the tension in your muscles is released, you'll experience a deep sense of relaxation and stress relief.

Deep tissue massage can help to correct imbalances in the body by releasing tension in muscles and fascia. This can lead to improved posture, which can have numerous health benefits.

Decreased inflammation:

FAQs

Deep tissue massage differs from other types of massage in several ways. While traditional massage focuses on relaxation and uses lighter strokes to soothe and calm the muscles, deep tissue massage targets the deeper layers of muscle tissue to address chronic pain and tension.

Deep tissue massage also uses slower and more intense pressure than other massage techniques, and can involve techniques such as friction, compression, and stretching. This allows the massage therapist to access and work on deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue, where chronic tension and adhesions are often located.

Another difference is that deep tissue massage is more focused on specific areas of the body that are experiencing pain or tension, rather than providing a full-body relaxation massage like traditional massage. Deep tissue massage is often used as a therapeutic treatment for chronic pain and injuries, and can be helpful for people with conditions such as back pain, neck pain, and muscle strains.

Deep tissue massage can be uncomfortable at times, but it should not be excessively painful. The massage therapist will work with you to ensure that the pressure is at a level that is comfortable for you, while still being effective in addressing your specific areas of tension or pain.

During the massage, you may experience some discomfort or soreness as the massage therapist works to release tension and knots in your muscles. It’s important to communicate with the therapist if the pressure is too intense or if you experience any pain that is beyond your comfort level. They can adjust the pressure or technique as needed to ensure that you receive the most benefit from the massage without causing excessive discomfort.

It’s also common to feel some soreness or tenderness in the day or two following a deep tissue massage, similar to the feeling after a strenuous workout. This is a normal part of the healing process, and should subside within a few days. Drinking plenty of water and resting your muscles can help to minimize any discomfort.

Deep tissue massage can help with a variety of areas in the body, particularly those that may be experiencing chronic tension or pain. Some common areas that deep tissue massage can help with include:

  • Neck and shoulders: Many people hold tension in their neck and shoulders, which can lead to chronic pain and stiffness. Deep tissue massage can help release this tension and promote relaxation in these areas.
  • Back: Deep tissue massage can be effective in addressing chronic pain and stiffness in the back, particularly in the lower back where many people experience tension and strain.
  • Legs: Whether you’re an athlete or simply spend a lot of time on your feet, deep tissue massage can help relieve tension and soreness in the legs, including the calves and hamstrings.
  • Arms: People who work on computers or perform repetitive motions with their arms may experience tension and pain in their wrists, forearms, and elbows. Deep tissue massage can help release this tension and promote relaxation in these areas.

In summary, deep tissue massage can be beneficial for anyone looking to address chronic tension or pain in their muscles and connective tissues. It’s important to communicate with your massage therapist about your specific needs and concerns to ensure that the massage is tailored to your individual needs.

Yes, deep tissue massage can be helpful in addressing sports injuries. When athletes experience injuries such as strains, sprains, or muscle tears, scar tissue can form as the body heals. This scar tissue can cause chronic pain and stiffness if it’s not addressed properly.

Deep tissue massage can help break up this scar tissue and promote healing in the affected area. By using slow, firm pressure and targeted strokes, deep tissue massage can help increase blood flow to the injured area, which can speed up the healing process. It can also help reduce inflammation and pain, allowing athletes to return to their sport more quickly and with less discomfort.

It’s important to note that deep tissue massage should only be performed by a trained and licensed massage therapist, particularly when it comes to addressing sports injuries. A therapist with experience in sports massage can tailor the massage to the specific needs and concerns of the athlete, helping them to recover from their injury as quickly and safely as possible.

Yes, there are some contraindications for deep tissue massage. It’s important to speak with your healthcare provider and your massage therapist to ensure that deep tissue massage is safe and appropriate for you, particularly if you have any underlying health conditions or injuries.

Some contraindications for deep tissue massage include:

Recent surgery: If you’ve had surgery within the past six weeks, deep tissue massage may not be appropriate for you.

Blood clotting disorders: If you have a blood clotting disorder or are taking blood thinning medication, deep tissue massage may not be safe for you.

Osteoporosis: If you have osteoporosis or another bone disease that makes your bones more fragile, deep tissue massage may not be appropriate.

Open wounds or skin conditions: If you have an open wound, rash, or skin condition such as eczema or psoriasis, deep tissue massage may exacerbate the condition or cause further irritation.

Pregnancy: Deep tissue massage is generally not recommended during the first trimester of pregnancy, and should only be performed by a therapist trained in prenatal massage techniques during the second and third trimesters.

It’s important to communicate with your massage therapist about any health concerns or conditions you may have, as well as any medications you’re taking, to ensure that deep tissue massage is safe and appropriate for you.

Here are some tips on how to prepare for your deep tissue massage session:

Hydrate: Drink plenty of water before your appointment to help flush out toxins from your body.

Avoid heavy meals: It’s best not to eat a heavy meal before your session, as this can make you feel uncomfortable and interfere with the massage.

Arrive early: Arrive at least 10-15 minutes early for your appointment to fill out any necessary paperwork and allow time to relax.

Communicate with your therapist: Let your therapist know about any medical conditions, injuries, or areas of pain you want to focus on during the massage.

Wear comfortable clothing: Wear loose, comfortable clothing that allows for easy movement and access to the areas of your body that will be worked on.

Relax: Try to relax and clear your mind before your session. Take deep breaths, meditate, or do whatever helps you feel calm and centered.

By following these tips, you can help ensure a more comfortable and effective deep tissue massage experience.

I’ve been coming to this place and I love it. Love the staff. Today I went and we had our massage done by Jane and Amy. They were amazing. I wasn’t really pleased with the service from the guy at reception felt an off vibe from him. But loved the women, they were so sweet and friendly. I would recommend getting your massage here.

Fantastic massage...quite simply. Over the last 10 years I have suffered from many back problems due to semi professional sports. After trying out Kobkuns deep tissue massage I got an immediate improvement and have got back to my best thanks to them. Thank you so much Kobkun ! I would also say that I have tried many other massage places nearby in Islington but they are just copycats compared to Kobkun and only been open a few years. Kobkun I have since discovered after getting to know the staff well have been operating for 20 years and are the real deal and totally professional and authentic 👌 I cannot recommend Kobkun enough ...they are outstanding and by far and away the best in London.
