Massage Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
- What should I expect after a deep tissue massage?
Most people will experience some discomfort after a deep tissue massage. Stiffness and mild pain are common however these feelings should subside within a day or so. Your massage therapist will often recommend applying ice to the area after your deep tissue massage.
- What does it feel like when a trigger point is released?
A trigger point is usually a sensitive area that is often described as “tight”, “stiff” or “aching”. Releasing this tension often feels like the area has relaxed somewhat, followed by a decrease in the dull, aching pain levels over the next few hours.
- How do you release a trigger point?
Once you find the trigger point, you can compress the area with a finger, ball etc for 30-90 seconds. During this time you may remain static, make slight rotational or back-and-forth movements. The key is to take the stimulation/pressure to a slightly uncomfortable level at most, not to a level of pain as this will tighten the very areas you are trying to relax.
- Is it dangerous to massage your neck?
If the right amount of force is used, with the therapist encouraging constant feedback from the patient to avoid irritating nerves and blood vessels, then it is not dangerous. The Wellbeing patient history is designed to identify those rare patients whom a neck massage may best be avoided.
