What is deep tissue massage?

Deep tissue massage is the manipulation of the deeper layers of muscle and soft tissues in the body. The massage therapist uses warm oils and direct pressure to relax the top layer of muscle in order to reach deeper layers of the muscle tissue. This type of massage can help relieve chronic aches and pain.

It can also be used as part of sports massage therapy and is used for treating the muscles and connective tissues of the body. It can help get muscles in the best condition for sports activities, stretch out tight muscles, help speed up healing of injuries and assist recovery after an event.

The massage can be stimulating or relaxing depending on the effects you want to achieve and the techniques used. A build-up of tension in the muscles from regular activity may lead to stresses in the joints, ligaments and tendons as well as in the muscles themselves. These imbalances can cause discomfort and inhibit performance in sport. The sports massage therapist can detect variations in the soft tissues and then use specific techniques to release those areas and make the tissues more supple.

If you are training for an event such as the London Marathon, various types of massage can be beneficial as an ongoing treatment to help the tissues recover from the increased training demands and to help you work on muscles that may be tight and affecting your movement.
