DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE

Ease Chronic Pain with a Deep Tissue Massage in Perth

Life is full of knocks and bruises, but persistent pain, injury and other physical conditions can be enough to keep you down. Deep tissue massage is a specialised form of treatment that aims to treat the deepest layers of muscle tissue to relieve pain, ease tension and improve movement. The therapist uses similar techniques to classic massage with a more pronounced emphasis on deep, slow and intense movements with their hands, fingers, knuckles, forearms and elbows.

Please note that we are not in a position to offer medical advice or a diagnosis. We reserve the right to refer clients to their medical practitioner for review at any stage in the treatment.

Is this form of massage therapy a painful procedure?

Not to be confused with trigger point therapy or lymphatic drainage massage, deep tissue therapy aims to address the condition at its core by getting past the surface tissue and treating areas with deep and direct pressure. Deep tissue massage is not for relaxation: it can be uncomfortable or even painful at times, and you may continue to feel some discomfort for a day or two after the session. This short term pain is common and reflects that this form of therapy focuses on providing you with longer lasting benefits.

Even though some discomfort is expected, it’s important to keep your therapist informed of what hurts and if any pain is outside of your comfort zone. We recommend that you:

  •    Avoid large meals prior to therapy
  •    Avoid intense exercise after therapy
  •    Stretch after therapy to reduce pain
  •    Drink plenty of water to help flush your muscles of toxins released during the massage

Those who suffer from a medical condition, have recently had surgery or been through any other medical procedure should check with their doctor before seeking massage therapy.
