This modality is a form of bodywork that aims to relieve tension in the deeper layers of tissue in the body. Deep Tissue Massage is a highly effective method for releasing chronic stress areas due to misalignment, repetitive motions, and past lingering injuries. Due to the nature of the deep tissue work, open communication during the session is crucial to ensure the therapist knows when you’ve reached your pain threshold. Using a pain scale and communicating about sensations will also help him/her to target the problem areas for the best outcome during your session. Keep in mind that soreness is pretty common after this body work, and that plenty of water should be ingested to aid with the flushing and removal of toxins that will have been released from the deep tissue during the session.
