Deep Tissue Pressure Massage – Muscle Tendon & Ligament Relief

Deep Tissue Massage Brisbane or myofascial release is a technique of massage that focuses on removing constraints in deeper layers of muscles, tendons and ligaments. Deep tissue massage reduces chronic pain cycles in the body by slow strokes and deep finger pressure on the areas being contract. Deep tissue pressure massage Brisbane first warms up the soft tissue before targeting deeper muscle groups using slow strokes and deep pressure or friction applied across the grain of the muscles not with the grain.

Deep Tissue Pressure Massage- How Does It Work?

Deep tissue pressure massage is both healing and corrective. This uses two direct or indirect approaches, and is effective in releasing deep-held pain cycles, eliminating toxins, calming and stimulating muscles. The direct method applies pressure to the muscle in order to find resistance in the body and keep the pressure until the resistance is released. The indirect strategy pushes the resistance in the opposite direction. The amount of pressure applied with both methods depends upon the amount of resistance. For long, gradual strokes fingers, knuckles, wrists, elbows, and forearms are all used. Due to the emphasis on a specific area some clients find deep tissue massage unpleasant and during or after it can cause some soreness. Providing the massage is done properly any soreness will vanish within a day or two. Deep tissue massage does not require great strength, nor does it need to be painful and, if done incorrectly, applying pressure for the sake of it can be ineffective. Of the two forms there are many different combinations, direct and indirect.

Some of the most famous are:-

  • Polarity Therapy
  • Thai Massage
  • Trigger point Therapy
