We have a joke in the massage and wellness industry, “Have Issues With Your Tissues? Try Deep Tissue Massage!”.

Deep Tissue Massage In Brief

Deep Tissue Massage is a unique massage treatment where:

  • Firstly, The therapist uses warm oil to relax the top layers of muscle. This also helps to reach deeper muscles and tissues during the session
  • Secondly, the therapist will apply constant pressure followed by deep strokes. This will help reach inner layers of muscle fibres and soft tissues of the body
  • Thirdly, Deep strokes help break up scar tissues that can form after sustaining an injury which helps alleviate pain and tension
  • Finally, Promotes good blood circulation throughout the body that promotes better healing and reduces inflammation

Benefits of Deep Tissue Massage

Since massage offers a holistic approach in treating our wellbeing, critics have always raised eyebrows towards its benefits. However, a study conducted at Poznan University of Medical Sciences, Poznan, Poland in 2019 suggests that massage may have clinical benefits for treating ankylosing spondylitis (a form of arthritis that primarily affects the spine, although other joints can become involved. It causes inflammation of the spinal joints (vertebrae) that can lead to severe, chronic pain and discomfort) patients (Romanowski et al., 2019).

The common known benefit of Deep Tissue Massage includes:

Pain Relief

Many people have reported getting the benefit of pain relief after a single or consecutive deep Tissue massage sessions. This include:

  • Treating Sore Body Muscle: Deep Tissue Massage can help to open the knots in a stiff neck, sore shoulder, upper and lower back, hand and leg etc
  • Treating Fibromyalgia: Fibromyalgia is a condition that can cause widespread pain and tenderness in the body. Deep Tissue massage can help minimize the symptoms of such condition
  • Reliving Plantar fasciitis Pain: Plantar fasciitis is a thick band of tissues that connects the heel bone to the toes. Running, exercise, aerobatics, sports, pregnancy, overweight and even wearing shoes with poor arch support can cause inflammation in this complicated muscle. Deep Tissue massage can help relieve heel pain once done properly on these muscles.

  • Healing Tennis Elbow: Tennis Elbow is a very common sports-related injury. Irritation of the tissue connecting the forearm muscle to the elbow can lead to this injury. This condition is common among athletes (Cricket, Tennis, Badminton, Volley Ball, Baseball etc) and jobs (Heavy Lifting, Driving, Butcher, Factory Work etc) where such muscles around the elbow need consistent usage. Recovery of this condition can take from a few months to even multiple years. Deep Tissue massage around the elbow region can help escalate the recovery process.
  • Treating Sciatica: Sciatica can cause pain in the legs and back. Pain can travel along the sciatic nerve, which starts in our lower spine and runs through our hip, buttocks and the back of our leg to the foot. Deep Tissue massage usually helps to minimize the pain of sciatica.

Managing Blood Pressure

Our sympathetic nervous system administrates our blood circulation. High blood pressure can cause many heart diseases including heart failure. Deep Tissue massage can help relax the sympathetic nervous system which is responsible for raising blood pressure in an individual. This can help to maintain healthy blood pressure without the use of any prescription drugs.

Psychological Benefits

We all have heard about the proverb, “A healthy mind lives in a healthy body”. Many people feel more flexible and light after a good deep tissue massage session. As a result, this treatment can help boost confidence and general wellbeing.

Tips for a better ‘Deep Tissue Massage’ session in Hobart

We have some tips for customers to come and book for a ‘Deep Tissue Massage’ session with us. They are:

  • Drink lots of Water: It is recommended to be properly hydrated before and after the massage session. Since Hobart is cold most of the year-round, skin dryness and low water consumption are two common problems. Enough hydration can help loosen the muscles more.
  • Wear comfortable garments: We recommend wearing comfortable clothes to boost relaxation.
  • Stretching prior to treatment: Stretching prior to deep tissue massage session can help minimise muscle swelling and sore muscle after such extensive treatment
  • Communicating with Therapist: It is very much essential to communicate with your therapists regarding your problems, concerns and needs. This can help get a treatment specially catered to your needs. In other words, communication is sometimes the difference between a ‘good’ and ‘better’ deep tissue massage session.
