Deep tissue massage is one of the many body massages that we offer at our Atlanta spa. This massage is a specific type of therapy that is similar to Swedish massage but with techniques used to concentrate on the deep layers of muscle in the body. It is a Western technique used to relieve tension and pain that stems from deep within the muscle and connective tissue. We recommend deep tissue massages for individuals who experience stiffness and tension stemming from bad posture or previous injuries.
Deep tissue massage therapy helps alleviate muscle tension, inflammation and associated pain, and even break up scar tissue by loosening the tight tissue clusters and increasing the blood flow with the use of deep pressure application. These techniques are also used to treat an array of physical conditions and reduce the heart rate by triggering the release of serotonin. Deep tissue massage can benefit individuals who experience:
Deep tissue massage techniques are very similar to that of traditional Swedish massage with the primary difference being increased pressure application which aims at affecting the deeper tissue structure of the muscles. The massage therapist will choose between several strokes depending on the size of the muscle that is negatively affected. Our trained massage therapists do not force pressure into the muscle, but rather apply pressure until the muscle pushes back. The pressure applied should not be painful, but it is common to experience soreness after a deep tissue massage.
Before your massage, be sure to discuss your specific ailments with the therapist before the massage starts so that we can tailor your session to meet your needs and provide a massage tailored for you.
