After a long and exhausting day do you still feel tension and muscle pain? Nothing better than a strong massage (deep tissue) to relieve pain!
Deep tissue massage is a strong massage because it reaches the connective tissue of the body, not just the most superficial muscles.
-When a professional therapist performs strong massage (deep tissue), he always uses a variety of techniques with slow movements, in order to minimize pain. In is case, it is applied a firm pressure to reach the muscles and the fascia. So, these techniques help loosen the muscles to release the tension.
-Many clients have a more intense experience with a strong and deep massage, considering that it is more beneficial because it treats the deepest muscle pain.
-Like other types of massage, the results are more visible if performed regularly to correct long-term problems, relax the body, and very important, prevent injury.
-One of the defining differences between deep tissue and a regular massage is the use of tools. A regular massage involves only the therapist’s hands and forearms.
During treatment, the therapist uses the elbows and fingers to reach the muscle. This technique helps to release lactic acid (toxin) and helps to relax the muscle. In addition, tools such as ceramics, glass or wooden props can also be used, but with caution and knowledge.
-During the session it is essential that the therapist asks the client, from time to time, about the pressure he is applying, so that the treatment is not uncomfortable and painful.
-At the end of the session, the client should drink plenty of water to help the body cleanse toxins and the effect of the massage is more effective and lasts longer.
