Deep Tissue Massage Torquay

Talk to Lisa at Surfcoast Massage about deep tissue massage Torquay. Deep tissue massage is a type of massage that focuses on the deep tissue structures of the muscle and fascia, or connective tissue. It is a generic term used to describe massage that goes below superficial connective tissue aiming to break up old structural patterns and allow the free flow of nutrients and oxygen in the blood. Using many of the same movements used in traditional massage, deep tissue massage applies more pressure intensity aimed at eliminating knots, locked up areas and freeing up congestion of the muscle attachments.

When a deep tissue massage is required it is usually to treat chronic knots and tension that has built up over time. Lisa may recommend a course of deep tissue massage sessions accompanied with exercise and relaxation techniques as part of a holistic program to improve your overall health and wellbeing.

Is a deep tissue massage painful?
No, but it may be slightly more uncomfortable than a remedial massage or therapeutic massage. Be sure to let Lisa, your deep tissue massage therapist, know if the pressure is too much. It’s very important to drink plenty of water after a deep tissue massage to help flush lactic acid out of the tissues to prevent soreness the following day. Any soreness you do experience following a deep tissue massage will pass within a day or so. Patients often describe this as ‘good pain’ and results often produce longer lasting relief of pain and discomfort.
