Deep-Tissue Massage: Like Untying Knots Buried in the Sand

Not simply focused on relaxation, deep-tissue massage seeks to relieve muscle pain through intense, deliberate strokes. Check out our guide to know what to expect.

Some entanglements have simple solutions: a wrinkled tablecloth can be smoothed out in minutes with an iron, and an unruly mess of hair needs only a tube of superglue to be set straight forever. But when the fascia—the layer of connective tissue that covers and interpenetrates the body’s muscles and bones—gets tied up in knots, it’s time to call in an expert.

“What deep-tissue massage purports to do a lot of the time is mild fascial release, which is kind of warming up the fascia and releasing lactic acid and any other toxins that have built up there,” says Katie O’Reilly, associate editor for DaySpa magazine. To achieve this, the therapist’s fingers, thumbs, and elbows move along the body in slow, deliberate strokes, applying pressure to penetrate beyond superficial muscle layers and relieve pain and tension. More intense than Swedish massage, deep-tissue sessions can last up to 90 minutes, ensuring the therapist has enough time to devote to particularly troublesome trigger points.

Conventional wisdom states that a proper deep-tissue massage should be at least a little painful. This “no pain, no gain” mentality, however, doesn’t totally apply—a massage, no matter how intense, should still be relaxing, and O’Reilly notes, “If you’re getting beat up during the massage, you should probably tell the therapist to rein it in a little bit.” Maintaining an open line of communication with your therapist is important for other reasons as well. He or she needs to know about your health history before administering the treatment, as the intensity of deep-tissue strokes may exacerbate certain medical conditions.

Thank you for your support. We need our shoulders for so many functions. In an effort to keep its mobility and ROM, there are a variety of connections that must be addressed with a variety of techniques. The most important for me is the Myofascial Tissue and the Ligaments that are attached to the shoulder blades, ribs, arm and all the cervical connections. Most of which are non-blood tissues. These tissue can not be worked in the same way as muscle tissue. Sometime it takes a delicate touch to stretch the tissue almost feeling as if the therapist is doing nothing or affecting nothing. Trust and believe a therapist that is invested in the work that they do will never not do anything for your benefit. Reworking and reeducation muscle memory patterns is work and can not be achieved in one session. It is a progressive ongoing process. Keep up the work!
