What is Deep Tissue Massage Therapy?

This type of massage is effective to release tension and knots or strains in the deepest layers of muscles, tendons, and fascia. Deep tissue massage may cause a bit of discomfort especially if the therapist is working on a knot on the muscle.

How is the Process of the Deep Tissue Massage Miami?
Before the appointment
You need to get a consultation to identify what is your problem and what are the areas that need to get treated. Our staff is experienced with different types of massages and will give you an evaluation to decide which is the best option for you. You should feel comfortable and talk with the specialist about the level of pressure that you prefer and the specific sore spot or places in which you want the therapist to work in.
During the appointment
You'll be asked to lie on your back or stomach, under a sheet. The therapist will warm-up the muscles using a lighter touch. Then the therapist will start working on your problem areas.
Lighter pressure is applied first and then the therapist uses the elbows, fingertips, knuckles, and thumbs to perform the deep muscle massage. Please keep in mind that although you may feel some discomfort deep tissue massage should never hurt if you feel any kind of pain talk to your therapist about it because your back might tense up in response to the pain and the therapist won't be able to reach the deepest layers of muscle.
You may feel a little soreness right after the treatment for a few days, use a heating pad or cold pack to relieve it.
