First Deep Tissue Massage uses many of the same movements and techniques as Swedish massage, but the therapist will work the deeper tissue structures of the muscle and fascia (connective tissue). Also it is also a more focused type of massage, as the therapist works to release chronic muscle tension or knots called adhesions. Subsequently many people expect DT massage to be an hour of intense pressure and pain, but this is counterproductive. Finally I recommend 90 mins to get the full benefit!
What Is Sports Massage? Is it Different Than Deep Tissue Massage?
Sports massage was developed for athletes who need to keep their bodies in great condition and quickly work out any stress or injuries. Sports massage can be used to get an athlete ready to compete, support their bodies while they compete, or help it recover after an event. But sports massage works for treatment of chronic pain, injury or range-of-motion issues. It is similar in that respect to Deep Tissue Massage but with some differences.
What Is Myofascial Release Therapy
Myofascial Release is not going to be like a typical spa style relaxation massage. It is not just a Deep Tissue Massage treatment either. It is a safe and very effective hands-on technique that involves applying gentle sustained pressure into the Myofascial connective tissue restrictions. Many people consider this a form of physical therapy. This technique will eliminate pain and restore motion.
The use of Myofascial Release allows us to look at each patient as a unique individual. My sessions are hands-on treatments during which I will use a multitude of Myofascial Release techniques and movement therapy. I will promote independence through education in proper body mechanics and movement, self treatment instruction, enhancement of strength, improved flexibility, and postural and movement awareness.
