If you are looking for therapeutical benefits from a massage, then Deep Tissue Massage is for you. This kind of massage can be very effective for people suffering from prolonged muscular pain.
As Deep Tissue Massage is usually done for curing specific health issues, a therapist only can suggest the number of required sessions and its frequency. However, if you are doing it as a leisure massage, then once in a month is fine.
In Deep Tissue Massage, a therapist works on deeper layers of muscles, and connecting tissues called the fascia to remove adhesions. While trying to reach deeper tissues, as certain amount of pressure is exerted, you may feel some amount of discomfort though not severe to dislike it. That said, each body’s level of tolerance to pain differs, so let your therapist know your desired pressure range.
As muscles have been worked out and a lot of metabolic waste is produced in the body, you are bound to experience a bit of soreness. This usually disappears within 24 hours. Remember to drink plenty of water to flush out the metabolic waste.
Pressure!!! Though it is said in one word, it is not the only thing that differentiates Deep Tissue Massage from others. The strokes used in Deep Tissue Massage also differs as the aim of this massage is to penetrate the layers of the tissue to release the tension formed there.
