Deep Tissue Massage – What exactly is it?
Deep-tissue massage is a specific type of massage therapy that concentrates on the deep layers of muscle and fascia in the body; and recommended by many doctors as a treatment option. By using deep finger pressure and slow, firm strokes, deep tissue massage is used to treat a variety of physical ailments.
Deep Tissue Massage Tips
Taking a warm bath or in sauna may be helpful to reduce soreness and relax muscles after the massage. At Custom Bodies Fitness and Massage, we have a hot tub for hydrotherapy and warming the body prior to massage treatments. This can be very soothing either before or after a massage.
Note that you should find a massage therapist that is experienced enough in doing deep tissue massage before scheduling an appointment.
