Deep Tissue Massage

We offer various massage treatments for everybody, from pregnant women to athletes.
A deep tissue massage is a form of therapeutic bodywork that focuses on realigning deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue. It involves applying pressure to the muscles, connective tissues, or other structures to increase blood flow and release tension. Iphie’s Massage Services deep tissue massage experts are highly trained individuals who know how to provide you with an unforgettable experience! We hope that this blog post will help answer any questions you may have about deep tissue massages so that you can make an informed decision before booking your appointment with us.

Benefits of deep tissue massage

The benefits of a deep tissue massage include allowing you to relax, loosening tight and sore muscles, improving your flexibility, reducing pain in joints (including the back), and releasing endorphins that will improve your mood. Deep tissue massages also help with healing injuries by breaking down scar tissues or adhesions, which can lead to improved range of motion and decreased discomfort from old injuries. Iphie’s Massage Services experts are trained in how to reduce chronic headaches/migraines through properly aligning bones and muscle structures without compressing them. We offer expert advice on what type of strength of pressure is best suited for each person’s needs, so don’t hesitate!

How do we perform deep tissue massage?

Deep tissue massages are considered deep because they focus on muscle fibres that lie below the surface, whereas a regular massage would penetrate less. Iphie’s Massage Services experts use various techniques, from Swedish to trigger point therapy, through extensive knowledge of anatomy and physiology (along with years of experience) to make you feel better after your session!

Risks involved in deep tissue massage

Some people may find it too intense as their muscles may be more sensitive or tight than others. Iphie’s Massage Services recommends not performing any heavy exercise for 24 hours before receiving a deep tissue massage. There is also a risk of feeling soreness following treatment, but this should go away within 48-72 hours if properly iced and rested afterwards. However, we also recommend that you don’t take part in any heavy exercise for 24 hours post-massage.

We provide both male and female massage therapists to help alleviate the risk of feeling uncomfortable during your session, as we understand it can be a very emotional experience for some clients. We will always work on ‘trigger points, which are knots or tight areas within the muscles, with intense pressure until they release. This is when deep tissue massage can become painful, but we will never push past your pain threshold!
