Massage Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
What are the side effects of a deep tissue massage?
It can be quite common to have some post treatment soreness that may linger for a few days after a deep tissue massage, muscles may feel tender or slightly bruised. A more common result of a deep tissue massage is to feel “looser” and have more range of motion.
Do deep tissue massages get rid of knots?
Deep tissue massages may loosen muscular “knots” as the nature of the massage is to press firmly deep into the muscle to release these active muscular “knots” and provide more mobility and range of motion. The benefit of deep tissue massage and its ability to relieve symptoms associated with “knots” also depends on the way one’s particular body reacts.
Is it bad to shower before a massage?
A shower before a massage may actually be beneficial as it can help loosen up your muscles and allow you to feel warm and increase range of motion. Showering may also make you feel more confident and relaxed as you know you are clean and prepared.

How do you dress for a massage?
It may be important to wear clothing that can easily be removed or provides adequate access to the skin; such as activewear.

Some research suggests that if you don’t consume a reasonable amount of water post massage then there is a higher chance that post treatment soreness may occur. As toxins may be released after a deep tissue massage into the bloodstream it is believed that water may aid in the removal of toxins by flushing them out of the bloodstream and therefore allow you to feel better more efficiently, however the effectiveness of water post massage is not conclusively known.
How much water should I drink to flush my system?
It is not conclusively known how much water we should drink to flush toxins out of our circulatory system post massage however it is suggested that drinking 1L per 25kg of body weight daily can be beneficial. However the amount of water we drink and the evidence that its effective with removing “toxins” is still debated
Can deep tissue massage cause damage?
