The Advantages Of Deep Tissue Massage

The connective tissue that wraps most structures within your body is referred to as the fascia. Deep fascial massage, or deep fascial manipulation, is a soft tissue therapy that relaxes contracted muscles, improves blood supply and lymphatic circulation, and treats skeletal muscle immobility and pain. Most people also know this as deep tissue massage.

By focusing primarily on the fascia and other connective tissues, deep fascial manipulation, or deep tissue massage, eases pain caused by the tightening and constricting of muscles, whether from overuse, injury, inactivity or illness.

The Difference Between Deep Tissue Massage And Relaxation Massage

At Adaptive Myotherapy, deep tissue massage is one of our specialties. Unlike relaxation massage, which helps to de-stress and loosen up your body, deep fascial massage uses gentle, sustained pressure to loosen and lengthen constricting fascia, thus dealing with particular muscle tension or chronic pain.

Through a range of techniques, a myotherapist can break up adhesions or knots in your body to provide release and relief, a process that could take several minutes for each specific area as the tissues need to be softened and realigned.

Deep Tissue Massage At Adaptive Myotherapy

At your deep fascial massage appointment, our myotherapist will assess where you need treatment, what is causing the pain, and tailor an individualised treatment plan, which may involve other treatment approaches such as remedial massage, dry needling and cupping. You may also be advised on exercise, pain management, load management and lifestyle or activity modification.

Our Qualifications

Similar to physiotherapists, osteopaths and chiropractors, myotherapists have their own distinct qualifications, specifically the BHSc (Clinical Myotherapy), BHSc (Myotherapy) and AdvDip (Myotherapy), which qualify practitioners to undertake evidence based assessment, treatment and rehabilitation of patients experiencing musculoskeletal pain and associated conditions.
