Massage and Movement offer Deep Tissue Massage therapy in South Birmingham, West Midlands.
As the name suggests, Deep Tissue Massage is a deep, penetrating massage intended to assist in improving a person’s muscle function, enabling targeted muscles, to move more freely and easily, feel less restricted and tender.
Muscle tension and tightness can build up in our bodies caused by injury or by repetitive daily living activities – ways we repeatedly use our bodies throughout the day; for instance computer work, manual work, driving, feeling stressed and ‘holding stress’ in neck or shoulders etc. This all effects how our muscles and soft tissues work together.
Where a person feels areas of muscle ‘tightness’ or ‘tension’, sometimes accompanied by pain, Deep Tissue Massage is useful in working through the layers of muscle and soft tissue, gradually softening the tissue and releasing adhered muscles and ‘knots’ or adhesions.
Deep Tissue Massage is most often given with little or
no massage medium e.g. oil or lotion, so that the therapist
is better able to engage with soft tissues rather than
over them. A session is ended with a more superficial
massage to the areas worked using oil. This assists the
returning to a state of rest and repair.
