Deep Tissue Massage FAQs

The reason a deep tissue massage can leave lingering pain and discomfort is because they involve intense physical pressure on your body. It’s completely normal for the soreness to last for a day or even two or three!

When you get a deep tissue massage, your therapist will ask which area of your body you want them to focus on. There is no standard method - the treatment should be tailored to your specific needs, but all therapists will have their own individual styles too.

You’ll be asked to lay on the massage table, either on your front, back or side depending on what area is being massaged. Your therapist might begin lightly at first to warm up your muscles, before moving on to the areas of focus.

This will involve deep pressure being applied slowly with hands, arms and elbows to release your contracted muscles and tissues. The time it takes to complete the treatment can vary, but it will normally be between one and two hours.

It’s normal to feel some soreness after a deep tissue massage, as they can be quite intense. Think of it as the same kind of pain you get after a hard workout! The treatment itself does involve high pressure being applied to your body, and there may be some discomfort - if it becomes too much, you can always let your therapist know.

However, it’s important to note that while soreness can be common, you shouldn’t be feeling any extreme pain post-massage. If this is the case, you should tell your therapist and your doctor too.

After your deep tissue massage, you’ll want to ensure you feel the full benefits and maximise your gains. It can be helpful to:

  • Rest: After an intense massage session designed to relax your mind and body, the best thing to do is help yourself stay relaxed. Whether it’s having a nap or just putting your feet up in front of the telly, let yourself feel the effects of your deep tissue massage. Try and wait for at least 24 hours before any intense physical activity

  • Eat and drink - but keep it light: While you should ideally avoid eating or drinking too much before the massage, afterwards you should definitely hydrate yourself. It’s also normal to feel peckish after a massage, so a light and nutritious meal can really hit the spot

  • Have a bath: Nothing aids the relaxation process quite like a warm bath - and if you’re feeling it, treat yourself to some bubbles or a bath bomb to really indulge yourself. However you should avoid a hot bath or shower as this can aggravate inflammation. If you have an injury, it’s better to take a cold shower or bath for pain relief.

This is entirely up to you. If you’ve experienced a deep tissue massage and felt the benefits, then you might decide it’s worth doing regularly - or even just the once so you could know what it’s like and if it’s something you’d be interested in again.

You might feel they aren’t for you, in which case you might be more interested in other types of massage treatment, including:

  • Swedish massage

  • Hot stone massage

  • Thai massage

  • Lymphatic massage

  • Shiatsu massage

It’s been known for centuries that emotions can be trapped deep inside the body, and a deep tissue massage can be effective at helping release those tensions. Your massage therapist will understand the importance of emotional release as part of their treatments - however it’s important to remember that they may not be trained to assist in emotional therapy.

Massage etiquette is a thing - and it’s important for both you and your therapist. When you’re undergoing a treatment, you shouldn’t:

  • Disrespect your therapists’ boundaries

  • Be late and expect your full time

  • Dress down while your therapist is still in the room

  • Make excessive noise
