What is Deep Tissue Massage?

Deep tissue massage is a manual technique that’s mainly used to treat musculoskeletal issues, such as strains and sports injuries.

 

Billy applies sustained pressure using slow, deep strokes to target the inner layers of muscles and connective tissues. This helps to break up scar tissue that forms following an injury and reduce tension in muscle and tissue.

It may also promote faster healing by increasing blood flow and reducing inflammation.

Read on to learn more about deep tissue massage, including how it stacks up against Swedish massage and what to expect during a session with Billy.

What are the benefits of deep tissue massage?

Deep tissue massage offers both physical and psychological benefits. Unlike other massage techniques that focus on relaxation, deep tissue massage helps to treat muscle pain and improve stiffness. But it can still help to you unwind mentally, too.

A 2014 study involving 59 participants found that deep tissue massage helped to reduce pain in people with chronic low back. The authors likened its effects to those of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs.

Deep tissue massage was also shown to assist with:

  • sports injuries

  • fibromyalgia

  • plantar fasciitis

  • high blood pressure

  • sciatica

  • tennis elbow

How does Deep Tissue compare to Swedish massage?

Deep tissue massage and Swedish massage are two different types of massage therapy. Both use some of the same strokes, but they have different uses and vary greatly when it comes to the amount of pressure used.

Here are the key differences between deep tissue massage and Swedish massage:

  • Intended use. Remedial Massage by Billy uses deep tissue massage to treat chronic pain and muscle and sports-related injuries. It's also used to reduce muscle tension caused by everyday activities, such as sitting at a computer. Swedish massage is mainly used to promote relaxation.

  • Pressure. Swedish massage is a gentler form of massage that uses far less pressure than deep tissue massage. Both types involve use of the palms and fingers to knead and manipulate your tissues, but Billy uses his elbows and forearms to apply increased pressure during a deep tissue massage.

  • Area of focus. Billy uses deep tissue massage techniques to target the inner layers of your muscles. He does this to treat muscle and tendon injuries, pain, and stiffness in your major muscle groups and joints. Billy will focus on the parts of your body that tend to hold the most tension, such as your neck, shoulders, and back. Swedish massage targets the superficial layers of muscle and skin with just relaxation in mind.
