Deep Tissue Massage is a form of massage that treats deeper layers of muscle tissue and fascia (connective tissue surrounding muscles and organs). Unlike classic massage, which focuses on the superficial layers of muscle tissue, Deep Tissue Massage targets aims to relieve chronic muscle tension and adhesions and reduce pain and limited mobility.
During the treatment, the masseur or masseuse applies pressure to the affected areas using slow and deep movements. The pressure can be exerted by fingers, knuckles, elbows or special massage devices. A deep tissue massage can be uncomfortable or even painful because deep pressure is placed on the muscles and connective tissue. However, it is important to provide feedback to the massage therapist to adjust pressure to individual needs.
Deep tissue massage is often used for athletes and those suffering from chronic pain, injuries, or limited mobility. It may also be helpful in treating conditions such as fibromyalgia, osteoarthritis, and neck and back pain. As with any massage, individuals with certain health concerns should consult their doctor before undergoing a deep tissue massage. At Soulhouse we offer a premium level deep tissue.
