Deep tissue massage focuses on realigning deep layers of muscles and connective tissue or fascia. Where you feel chronic muscle tension in the body, there is usually what we call adhesions (rigid scar tissue) in the muscles, tendons and ligaments. Scar tissue is painful and can restrict your body movements and block circulation. Over time it can also encourage bad posture.
Our deep tissue massage Edinburgh service focuses on breaking down these adhesions and releasing the chronic tension that may have built up in the muscle over time. In order to do this, your massage therapist Edinburgh will use a variety of techniques depending on the severity of the muscular problem and your pain threshold.
As well as trigger point technique and deep friction therapy, your massage therapist will also use classic massage strokes, but the movements will be much slower and deeper in order to correct the muscle fibres. Some discomfort and pain has to be expected when treating chronic muscle tension or adhesions but you should never be out of your comfort zone. Your therapist will be in continuous communication with you to ensure that this pain threshold is not broken and that you always remain comfortable.
