Deep Tissue Massage

Deep tissue massage is a massage technique that’s mainly used to treat musculoskeletal issues, such as strains and sports injuries. It involves applying sustained pressure using slow, deep strokes to target the inner layers of your muscles and connective tissues. This helps to break up scar tissue that forms following an injury and reduce tension in muscle and tissue.
It may also promote faster healing by increasing blood flow and reducing inflammation.

Benefits of Deep Tissue Massage

Deep tissue massages focus on physical and psychological relaxation unlike other massage which only focuses on physical relaxation. A study in 2014 revealed that deep tissue massage has helped people with chronic back pain. The researchers compared the effects of a deep tissue massage with using inflammatory drugs like Advil. Most people have claimed that a deep tissue massage has helped them with certain problems like tennis elbow, plantar fasciitis, sports injuries, fibromyalgia, sciatica and even high blood pressure. Our therapists are popular for giving the best deep tissue massage in Dubai.

Difference between Deep Tissue Massage and Swedish massage

Although, both these massage use same strokes but the amount of pressure applied and the purpose of massage is significantly different. Swedish massage is used for relaxation from everyday strains like sitting at a computer all day while a deep tissue massage is used for chronic pain, muscle and sports-related injury. Swedish massage is gentle and uses minimal pressure while the deep tissue massage exerts more pressure by kneading muscles through the use of all fingers and palms. Deep tissue massage focuses on the inner layers of the muscles while treating muscle or tendon related injuries. On the other hand, Swedish massage focuses on those muscles of the body which hold most tension in our body like shoulders, neck and back.

How to Go About the Deep Tissue Massage?

This massage does not start randomly right away. First of all, our massage therapist will enquire you about your problem area. This massage could be targeted at your entire body or it could just be for a particular problematic area. The area that needs massage will have to be exposed and you may cover the rest of your body during massage. Our therapists are experts in giving a deep tissue massage in Dubai. They will start by warming up muscles with minimal pressure and will gradually build the pressure exerted by kneading and stroking.

What could be the possible side effects of a deep tissue massage?

Usually customers experience a lingering soreness for a couple of day’s right after their session of deep tissue massage. However, such soreness can be eliminated by using a hot pack or a cold pack in a towel. While this massage is generally safe; if you are suffering from certain medical conditions then you should refrain from a deep tissue massage. If you have the following conditions, then we recommend consulting a doctor first before deciding if a deep tissue massage would work best for you:

  • If you have a history of getting blood clots
  • If you are consuming blood thinners
  • If you have any sort of bleeding disorder
  • Or if you have cancer and are going through treatments like chemotherapy or radiation

People whose cancer has spread to their bones should avoid a deep tissue massage because their bones can fracture under pressure. This massage should also be avoided during pregnancy and a light massage should be considered.

People who do not face the above mentioned problems, and are looking for a power packed and focused massage should book a session for a deep tissue massage in Dubai with us right away.
