What is a deep tissue massage?

Deep tissue massage is designed to apply pressure to the layers of muscle and soft tissues and is highly therapeutic. The therapist applies firm pressure and slow strokes to the patient’s body to reach the fascia, or connective tissue, and muscles deep beneath the surface. These techniques are often used to break down ‘knots’, which are sections of rigid muscle and tissue adhesions, and can also be used to break through scar tissue and stimulate blood flow and healing. Knots and scar tissue are linked to a limited range of motion, poor circulation, pain, and inflammation.

What can I expect during a deep tissue massage?

At the start of a deep tissue massage, the therapist typically applies light, gentle pressure to loosen the patient’s body and prepare them for deeper relaxation. Next, the therapist applies firmer pressure and uses a variety of strokes and techniques to induce deep tissue release. You will likely be asked to breathe deeply to facilitate the reduction of myofascial tension. Some of the massage techniques might include:

Fingertip pressure

Specific, firm pressure applied with the therapist’s fingertips to pinpoint problem areas.

Friction

Pressure applied against the grain of the muscle to realign the muscle fibres and release adhesions.

Elbow or forearm pressure

Stronger pressure applied with the elbow or forearm to dig deep into the tissue.

Stripping

Gliding pressure that runs along the length of the muscle and with the muscular grain, increasing blood circulation.

Common questions about deep tissue massages

Deep tissue massages are a form of remedial massage. If you’re searching for a deep tissue massage in Sydney, Wayne Massage provides a tailored massage to fit your exact needs. Here are some answers to frequently asked questions we encounter concerning deep tissue massages here in Sydney.

Do deep tissue massages feel uncomfortable?
You will feel firm pressure against your muscles, but your therapist will work closely with you and frequently check to see how the massage feels and ensure the level of pressure is comfortable.
How will I feel after the massage?
Some patients report stiffness or soreness in the first hours or days after the massage as body tissue readjusts. However, this typically subsides within a few days, leaving patients with strong feelings of well-being, relaxation, and overall health.
How can I help the deep tissue massage process?
Drink lots of water before and after your massage, as this may aid in flushing metabolic waste out of your myofascial tissues.
Is there anyone who shouldn’t seek out a deep tissue massage?
If you have blood clots or are at risk for blood clots, a deep tissue massage may dislodge the blood clots. If you have blood clots, it’s essential to consult your doctor before undergoing a deep tissue massage.

Similarly, if you’ve recently undergone chemotherapy, radiation, surgery, are pregnant, or have another medical condition, seek the advice of a physician before scheduling deep tissue massage therapy.

If I have minor bruises or cuts, can I still get a deep tissue massage?
Absolutely! Your therapist will avoid massaging skin with unhealed wounds, inflammation, bruises, rashes, or underlying bone fractures.

If you are dealing with a contagious skin disease or infection, please let Wayne Massage know and seek the advice of a doctor first. The therapists will treat at their discretion and in accordance with Australian Health and Safety Guidelines.

Is a deep tissue massage similar to a Swedish massage?
A deep tissue massage uses different techniques from a Swedish massage. A Swedish massage focuses on moving, bending, and stretching joints, while deep tissue massage focuses on connective tissues and muscle structures.
