Deep Tissue Massage FAQs
After your massage, we recommend hydrating and resting. Drinking water can help flush out natural materials, like lactic acid and metabolic waste, after your massage. And, while it may not be feasible for everyone to take a nap after their massage, if you don’t have to jump right back into your daily activities, you can spend time listening to your body and extending your relaxation.
Depending on your areas of concern, you can get a deep tissue massage every two days. Our massage therapists can tailor an individualized treatment plan and discuss in-depth how often you should get a massage for optimal pain relief and healing.
A Swedish massage uses long, fluid movements to relax the entire body, whereas a deep tissue massage is designed to focus on certain areas with specific, broad movements. Deep tissue massages are ideal for those recovering from an injury or having chronic pain since the treatment focuses on the innermost layers of muscles and tendons.
Deep is different for everyone. Our goal is to make you as comfortable as we can, working with your muscles, not against them as we help you “let go” and release tension. Deep tissue therapy can be intense, but many of our clients say it’s a good hurt. We always want your feedback and will tailor our pressure to the needs of your body throughout your session.
