FAQs about experiencing a deep tissue massage

Come along as we address some of the most frequently asked questions about our most popular service.

What is a deep tissue massage?

This massage targets deeper layers of muscles and connective tissues, applying firm pressure and slow strokes to release chronic tension, alleviate pain, and enhance mobility. It’s a therapeutic technique beneficial for addressing persistent muscular issues and promoting overall well-being.


What is better deep tissue or remedial massage?

Deep tissue massage focuses on reaching deeper layers of muscles and tissues, while remedial massage employs various techniques to address specific conditions or injuries. Both offer therapeutic benefits, with deep tissue massage targeting chronic tension and remedial massage addressing specific musculoskeletal issues.


How rough is a deep tissue massage?

Deep tissue massage can feel intense as it involves applying firm pressure to reach deeper layers of muscle and tissue. However, it should not be excessively painful. Effective communication with your therapist ensures the pressure is adjusted to your comfort level, allowing for a beneficial and tolerable experience.


How do I know if I should get a deep tissue massage?

Consider a deep tissue massage if you experience chronic muscle tension, stiffness, or pain, particularly in areas like the neck, shoulders, or lower back. It’s also beneficial for improving mobility and addressing sports-related injuries or postural imbalances.


What happens to your body after a deep tissue massage?

After a deep tissue massage, you may experience temporary soreness or stiffness, similar to post-exercise fatigue. This discomfort typically subsides within a day or two, leaving you feeling relaxed and rejuvenated.

The massage promotes improved circulation, muscle flexibility, and mobility, enhancing overall physical and mental well-being, so the long term gain is certainly worth any minor short term pain.


What can I expect from a full-body deep tissue massage?

A full-body deep tissue massage provides comprehensive relief, targeting tension and discomfort throughout the body. Expect deep pressure applied to muscles and tissues, addressing chronic pain, stiffness, and mobility issues. You can expect to leave feeling relaxed, with improved circulation, flexibility, and overall well-being.


Is it good if deep tissue massage hurts?

While some discomfort during a deep tissue massage is normal, excessive pain is not. The pressure should be firm but tolerable, allowing for effective relief without causing undue discomfort. Communicate with your therapist to adjust the pressure to a level that is beneficial and comfortable for you.


How often should you get a deep tissue massage?

The frequency of deep tissue massage depends on individual needs and goals. For chronic conditions or ongoing muscular issues, weekly sessions may be beneficial initially, with less frequent maintenance sessions as symptoms improve. Consult with your therapist to determine a personalised treatment plan tailored to your needs.


Should I get a normal massage or deep tissue massage?

Massages are great for relaxation, stress reduction, and general wellness maintenance, but it’s a good idea to lean towards a deep tissue massage if you have chronic muscle tension, stiffness, or pain that requires deeper relief. Your therapist can help you decide which type of massage best suits your needs and goals.


Who should avoid deep tissue massage?

Deep tissue massage may not be suitable for everyone, especially those with certain medical conditions or sensitivities. Avoid deep tissue massage if you have recent injuries, fractures, or severe osteoporosis. Pregnant women should also consult with their healthcare provider before receiving a massage.


Is a deep tissue massage just your back?

No, a deep tissue massage can target various areas of the body beyond just the back. It can address tension and discomfort in areas like the neck, shoulders, arms, legs, and hips, providing comprehensive relief and promoting overall well-being.


Why can’t you shower after deep tissue massage?

It’s generally recommended to wait at least a few hours after a deep tissue massage before showering. This allows the body to fully absorb the therapeutic benefits of the massage and prevents potential irritation or discomfort to the skin from hot water. See our massage aftercare page for more information.


What does it mean when a massage hurts?

Some discomfort during a massage, particularly a deep tissue massage, is normal, especially if targeting areas of tension or adhesions. However, excessive pain may indicate that the pressure is too intense or that the therapist is working too deeply. Communication with your therapist is crucial to ensure a comfortable experience.


How long does your back hurt after a deep tissue massage?

It’s common to experience temporary soreness or stiffness in the days following a professional massage, similar to post-exercise fatigue. This discomfort typically resolves within a day or two, leaving you feeling relaxed and rejuvenated with improved mobility.


How do you prepare for a deep tissue massage?

Before your massage, hydrate well, avoid heavy meals, and communicate any specific areas of concern with your therapist. Wear comfortable clothing and arrive a few minutes early to relax and prepare mentally for your treatment.


What is it like getting a deep tissue massage for the first time?

Getting a massage for the first time can be both exhilarating and surprising. You may experience a mix of sensations, including intense pressure and relief as the therapist works through layers of tension.

While it may feel uncomfortable at times, the overall experience leaves you feeling invigorated and lighter, with newfound freedom of movement and reduced pain.


When is the best time to get a deep tissue massage?

The best time to get a massage depends on your individual preferences and lifestyle. Some people prefer to schedule their massage in the evening to relax and unwind after a long day, while others find it beneficial to receive treatment in the morning to start their day feeling rejuvenated and energised.

Ultimately, choose a time that works best for you and allows you to fully enjoy the therapeutic benefits of the massage.


Is a 30-minute deep tissue massage enough?

While a 30-minute massage can provide targeted relief for specific areas of tension or discomfort, it may not be sufficient for addressing larger areas of chronic pain or tension throughout the body.

For comprehensive relief and optimal results, consider booking a longer session, such as 60 or 90 minutes, to allow the therapist ample time to address your specific needs and provide thorough treatment.


What not to do before a deep tissue massage?

Before a massage, it’s important to avoid heavy meals, caffeine, and alcohol, as these can make you feel sluggish or uncomfortable during the treatment. Additionally, refrain from vigorous exercise or strenuous activities that may exacerbate muscle tension or fatigue. Arrive well-hydrated and avoid smoking, as this can affect circulation and tissue health.


What not to do after a massage?

After a massage, it’s essential to drink plenty of water to flush out toxins released during the massage and to stay hydrated. Avoid heavy meals and alcohol, as these can interfere with the body’s healing process and leave you feeling lethargic.

Refrain from strenuous exercise or activities that may strain muscles, and allow yourself time to rest and relax, fully embracing the benefits of your massage experience.
