Massage Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
What are the side effects of a deep tissue massage?
Many people will experience some discomfort and pain during the deep tissue massage. Stiffness or pain can be present after the massage, but it should subside within a day or so. Your massage therapist will often recommend applying ice or heat to the area after your massage.
What should I do before a deep tissue massage?
Try to avoid eating a heavy meal or drinking a large amount of fluid in the 3 hours before your massage. Deep tissue massage can be uncomfortable if your stomach is full. Ask all the questions you need before the therapy starts!
What happens when you get a deep tissue massage?
Deep tissue massage is a massage technique mainly used to treat muscle and connective tissue injuries.
How do you give yourself a deep tissue massage?
You can target a tight band in your muscle using a self myofascial release tool. This “tool” can be as simple as a cricket ball. You then apply pressure over a period of time, usually 30-90 seconds.
What is a deep tissue full body massage?
Deep tissue massage is best suited to working on a region or area. As the pressure used can be quite high, it is uncommon to be used over the full body in a single session. Swedish massage, a similar but lighter pressure type of massage, is better suited for a single session whole body treatment.
Does full body massage include private parts?
NO! Your therapist will never need access to your private parts. If needed, these areas will be appropriately draped at all times.
What is deep tissue massage called?
Can be also called Sports Massage.
What is the difference between a deep tissue massage and a regular massage?
Deep tissue as per its name, is attempting to apply pressure to the deeper muscles and connective tissues. Therefore a more pressure is applied when compared to other types of massage.
