At Spa Mobile, we want to understand your constraining situation to offer you a deep tissue massage service that addresses your concerns or physical pain to live healthier.
Deep tissue massage uses firm pressure.
Deep tissue massage is very similar to therapeutic massage, used for chronic pain in a specific part of the body and without too much firm pressure. However, deep tissue massage is often recommended for people who engage in high-intensity physical activities. Therefore, a massage therapist often sees patients who present with injuries related to their activities.
Deep tissue massage involves applying firm pressure and slow movements to reach the deeper layers of the muscles and the connective tissues surrounding the muscles.
For those who regularly engage in intense physical exercise several times a week, such as jogging and swimming, a deep tissue massage is advised every two weeks to prevent and reduce tension in the muscles. Sessions usually last around 90 minutes.
Most deep tissue massages focus on major muscle groups such as the neck and lower back. For example, the massage therapist targets areas with stress such as the shoulders, neck and hips.
What does our deep tissue massage consist of?
Our deep tissue massage begins with gentle pressure to warm up the muscles. The idea of pressure to reduce knots and adhesions is probably why most people compare deep tissue massages to relaxing massages.
Then our home massage therapist begins to use specific techniques. The movements commonly used for deep tissue massage are friction and stripping or curettage. Friction is applied by pressure across the muscle’s grain, while stripping is applied by deep pressure down the length of the muscle with an elbow, knuckles, or thumbs.
It is not uncommon for people to experience discomfort during deep tissue massage and even after. This discomfort is due to the breaking of muscle tension, the opening of adhesions, knots, and scar tissue degeneration.
It would be best if you also drank plenty of water after deep tissue massage, as this helps flush out the lactic acid that builds up in the body’s tissues, relieving some of the pain.
To find out if a deep tissue massage is for you, we invite you to find out if you have certain concerns or conditions that may require this type of massage.
Those for whom massage is not suitable
Due to the intensity and pressure of this treatment, it is not suitable for all people.
Those who have blood clots or are taking blood-thinning medications should avoid deep tissue massage, as strokes can cause the clots to dislodge. If a person with clots wants deep tissue massage, they should consult their doctor before continuing with this type of massage therapy.
Some have recently recovered from surgery or recent chemotherapy, which should also see a doctor.
Deep tissue massage can be beneficial for people with osteoporosis and osteoarthritis, but they should always consult their doctor before undergoing this treatment.
In addition, you should avoid using this high-pressure technique directly on an area with rashes, healing wounds, tumours, hernias, etc.
Moms-to-be should also avoid deep tissue massage. Instead, they can opt for Massages for a pregnant woman or pregnant.
Do you have chronic muscle pain?
Chronic muscle pain can be reduced by massage, and for it to qualify as chronic, your pain must be 12 weeks or longer.
Deep tissue massage is particularly effective in alleviating your chronic back pain and neck pain. Because back pain and neck pain are part of a wide range of painful conditions, deep tissue massage is often considered part of the healing process.
The most common causes of your chronic muscle pain are injury or long-term illness. Your chronic pain can occur in any part of your body and increase stress, anxiety, and sometimes depression.
A deep tissue massage aims to disrupt your pain cycle to reduce and relieve any pain and prevent it from recurring. Our massage therapists at Spa Mobile use deep tissue massage for your chronic muscle pain to release your body from significant muscle tension.
Are you living with deep wounds in your soft tissues?
Deep tissue massages are even more effective than conventional massages due to the level of pressure. This technique can reach scars deeper in the body, which damages muscles, ligaments or tendons.
Soft tissue injury is an umbrella term for injuries primarily affecting muscles, tendons, and ligaments. Injuries to these structures account for the majority of musculoskeletal injuries.
If you ignore the swelling and pain associated with these injuries, it can lead to more serious problems. Deep tissue massage therapy is a treatment that can help relieve pain from soft tissue injuries and speed up your recovery.
Five deep injuries affect ligaments, tendons, and muscles:
1. Bursitis: Commonly recognized as swelling around the joints, bursitis is caused by overuse of a particular joint. Left untreated, it can cause immobility of the joint it affects;
2. The contusion: A bruise, which is caused by damage to the tissues under the skin;
3. The sprain: This happens when the ligaments are overstretched. There are three degrees or grades of sprain: first, second and third;
4. Tension: It’s like a sprain and with the same degrees of classification. It affects muscles and tendons. Ignoring tension and strains can lead to more pain;
5. Tendinitis: It is an overuse of tendons that causes pain and swelling. If left untreated, possible surgery may be needed.
Our conservative, non-invasive massage therapy procedures are the perfect choice for treating your soft tissue injuries. Massage therapy is an important step for faster healing.
Deep soft tissue massage is the best option for targeting injuries in muscles, tendons, and ligaments. The depth to which our massage therapist will go depends on the type of injury and the treatment plan chosen. Depths and pressure may vary.
Our massage helps you relax your muscles, which helps relieve pain and relieve muscle tension. It increases circulation, which reduces swelling. This relief helps you prevent your soft tissue pain and helps you increase the flexibility of your movements while promoting faster healing of soft tissue injuries.
Do you have bad posture?
Poor posture occurs when your spine is positioned unnaturally. The curves of your spine are accentuated, which increases the stress on your joints, muscles, tendons, and ligaments.
This prolonged poor positioning results in a buildup of pressure in your surrounding soft tissues.
For most people, we spend many years of our lives sitting and leaning forward in our studies, jobs, and how we drive a car and sit down to eat. This helps to create a huge impact on our body, creating various muscle imbalances.
When you lean in front of a desk, your body is not properly aligned, forcing some muscles to work incredibly hard all day while others weaken. Sitting in the same position for an extended period of time causes your muscles to shorten, lengthen, and even reshape. This then causes muscle imbalances allowing your body and muscles to be pulled into bad posture.
Lower back pain is the most common complaint, but research shows that neck, shoulder and arm pain is increasingly common due to postural dysfunction.
Our deep tissue massage is a form of soft tissue relaxation consisting of a manual approach to the hands to relieve the stress and tension that builds up in the soft tissues of your body after being put into a tense position. With deep pressure reaching and stretching deep muscle fibres and producing increased blood flow to the muscles, the overall goal of deep tissue massage is to reduce pain and increase your range of motion.
Are you going through pain in your sciatic nerve?
Sciatica pain is a common condition along the sciatic nerve, which runs through the lower back, buttocks, hips, legs, and feet. As the longest nerve in the body, the sciatic nerve is responsible for controlling the function of the legs, such as the ability to stand and walk.
When your sciatic nerve is irritated, it can cause mild symptoms like numbness, weakness, and tingling in the lower extremities. The discomfort of sciatica often targets one side of your body and becomes more evident when sitting and standing or when coughing and sneezing.
Sciatica symptoms can range from uncomfortable to painful in more severe cases, with stinging or stabbing sensations restricting daily activities.
Rarely do you need immediate medical attention? However, symptoms of sciatica should be evaluated following injuries or accidents.
Sciatic nerve pain can interfere with your daily activities. If you want to try an alternative to traditional pain relievers, deep tissue massage may help provide temporary relief, but it does not address the underlying cause of your pain. Sciatica.
