What is deep tissue massage
Deep Tissue Massage – ‘Holistic Calmness’
Deep tissue massage is a therapy that focuses on the deep layers of muscles and connecting tissues. This special technique is mainly used to relieve pain or injury caused by strenuous physical work or by long hours of the sedentary workday. People who usually work in factories or spend most of their time in front of the computer suffer from back pain, the strain on the shoulders, and neck. Deep tissue massage is the best treatment to release tension and regain a new revived body. In this therapy, the therapist will apply firm pressure with hands, fingers, elbow, and forearm to relieve pain and stress or strain in your back, shoulders, and neck.
Back pain is a common issue in the UK nowadays. People are way busier than ever in their work lives which gives them minimal time to restore energy. Hectic life routines increase stress and tension in the body, muscles strangle together, and create knots. Deep tissue massage helps you prevent body ailments, strengthen muscles, lengthen tissues, release strain, and increase blood circulation in your body. You will feel light and energized after the therapy, though this therapy is a bit painful, as it targets your trigger points. But a little pain prevents further damage and gives you ultimate results.
At Massaggi, we promise to reduce your pain, nourish your body, outstretch your bad posture, and realign your tissues. We understand your pain with knowledge and generosity, which means applying the right technique for the right person. Like doctors do not prescribe one medicine to everybody for different courses of illnesses, we don’t use the same technique for all. Some clients are comfortable with the light touch, whereas others are more capable of bearing firm pressure. We acknowledge the uniqueness of every client and determine the treatment based on their conditions and needs.

The deep massage technique
Deep Tissue At Massaggi – ‘The Best Bet’
The deep tissue massage technique is quite different from the superficial Swedish massage. Your massage therapist at Massaggi will use a cross-fiber friction technique to investigate the proper structure of your body. Once your trigger points are examined, and muscle development has been assessed, the therapist will develop a slight pressure with his fingers and knuckles. In this process, the massage therapist will use very little oil. This pressure will activate the blood circulation and release the tendons, and ligaments which cause pain in the upper back and neck areas.
People who spend long hours in front of the computer lose the right posture of their bodies. Which later lead them to soreness in back, neck, and shoulders. The ultimate solution is the deep tissue massage technique. Bad posture affects your blood circulation, tightens up muscles, and stores toxins in your body. Our muscle energy technique will help stretch out constricted muscles. The therapist will apply pressure on your back and stretch out muscles to straighten up the shortened muscles. This technique will also improve your blood circulation, repair and lengthen muscles, release toxins, and let the fluids flow properly. Deep tissue massage can be a little painful but you will feel much energized after the sessions.

Deep tissue massage rehabilitates injured muscles, reliefs stress, solve headaches, lighten up tight muscles and shoulders, improves blood pressure. The combined effect of such therapy can be heavenly. It can be applied to treat a range of body condition.
Please refer the table below:
|Condition||Effects of treatment|
|Chronic pain||Increase blood circulation; corrects the muscular pattern; reduces inflammation|
|Blood pressure||Systolic pressure drop (average 10.4 Hg); diastolic pressure drop (average 5.3 Hg); results may vary|
|Depression||Increases production of serotonin (hormones responsible for good feeling)|
|Injured muscles||Help remove muscular toxins|
|Neck and Back pain||Reinstate the muscular order, normalizes and eases the muscles|
When you get this type of massage treatment after the initial body warm up, the right amount of massage pressure is applied to muscles to initiate the application phase. Keeping in mind the delicate region such as spine or neck. Bone surfaces are also avoided to keep the continuity intact. In later phases, a therapist tries to find out the tighter knots of muscle and assesses the condition of muscle.
Usually people who tend to actively use their muscle a lot (athletes, body builders and sports enthusiast). However, the recent trend suggests people with stressful work hours and bad postures tend to distort muscle state, which requires deep pressure as in Deep Tissue Massage.
A common session at Massaggi starts with body profiling. A profiling is done with the right mind, expertise and highly perceptive problem detection, which can judge all signs of chronic and general pain. Ben Pianese believes in minute body profiling which helps in understanding the root cause to maximize the treatment benefits and reduces the number of sitting.
The main idea of deep tissue massage is to know your threshold limit for accepting pressure and little pain. A good massage therapist always communicates during the session to judge whether you’re experiencing the right pressure or not. The pressure application for a bodybuilders, sports person and a normal person should be different.
The deep tissue massage is one of the pioneering technique when it comes to bodywork. Oppose to regular massage, deep tissue massage takes help of deeper pressure which are often helpful in chronic muscle tension. The technique is often termed as ‘painful’. But, Ben Pianese at Massaggi does not think in such way. The masters massage therapist of this art also had an opinion in using pressure according to the sensitiveness and strength one can take.
The kneading muscles technique is suitable for accessing deep contours of muscles after hard exercise to alleviate pain, discomfort, tightness and stress. A new study shows that massage releases unnecessary toxins, decrease inflammation and improves blood circulation. A number of medical journals cited lower blood pressure and a deep sense of relaxation after taking deep tissue massage treatment.
Massage therapists are trained to identify knots by observing tension in the back, neck, as well as shoulders. They pinpoint the source of the tension and start releasing it by implementing deep pressure with their thumb, fingertips, or forearm for 20-30 seconds.
Massage each group of muscles for up to 6 minutes per day for the best results.
This is completely based on the individual and the severity of the muscle knot.
You can massage muscular knots nearly everyday, but just don’t overdo it as this may aggravate the situation.
- It is advised to drink enough water before your massage session because it hydrates your muscles. When your muscles are properly hydrated, they become more flexible, which makes it simpler for the massage therapist to move them. Water consumption before to massage therapy can therefore increase the therapy’s overall effectiveness.
2. Dress comfortably and loosely so that you may move around easily during the session.
3.Communicate with your therapist: clearly inform your massage therapist of your needs in advance and any particular concerns you have that you would want to have addressed during the session.
4. Avoid eating a heavy meal: It is best to avoid eating a large meal just before your massage. This is due to the fact that a large meal may interfere with digestion and make the massage uncomfortable. To achieve the greatest level of comfort and relaxation, have a small meal or snack a few hours before your massage.
5. Arrive on time: Make sure to arrive at least 10-15 minutes before your appointment so you have time to fill out any paperwork and unwind before your massage.
6. Relax and breathe: Try to unwind and pay attention to your breathing while receiving the massage.
7. Take a warm shower before your massage session: It is advised that you take a warm shower before your massage in order to maximise its benefits. This easy procedure will aid in calming your muscles and getting them ready for the massage. This will allow the massage therapist to operate on your muscles more efficiently and maximise its therapeutic effects. To improve your overall massage experience, it is suggested that you take a warm shower before your appointment.
Remember that communication is crucial. Speak up if the pressure is too strong or too light, and inform the therapist if there are any areas that are too sore or tender to be massaged.

Deep tissue technique use extra pressure than Swedish massage. Tissue massage technique is more intense reaching to the deepest layers of tendons, tissues and fascia. A good deep tissue massage therapist takes the time to warm up and applies pressure with fingers, palms, forearms, and elbows to spread the pressure across the area under consideration. The applied friction eases muscle tension and strain. The receiver shouldn’t feel any soreness or pain.
For a person who uses muscle too much (exercise, sports, running, bodybuilding, overstretching), it is recommended to have this massage at regular interval. Regular massage treatment helps a person to recover fast who uses the muscle with extreme power.
Deep tissue massage through a process-oriented technique needs superior control and agility of a therapist to perform a flawless session. The realization of this fact often comes to the client when the session with the therapist keep on increasing and underlying results keep on decreasing. At Massaggi, our principle is to alleviate the root cause through the right technique at the right time.
What are the side effects of a deep tissue massage?
A client can feel a little pain or good sensation depending upon the actuality of muscular state. Layers of tissues in the body tend to be soft if are in perfect state and slide over each other. However, to a general reaction muscle shows exponential stiffness to pressure, experienced therapist always judge this reaction to adjust the deep pressure for greater benefits.
The Massaggi technique of deep tissue massage London give patients long lasting remedy by improving overall health. Ben Pianese, massage therapist makes the difference by recognising muscular imbalance, poor posture, and past injuries right on the onset. It takes superior knowledge and instinct to make healthy lasting results by using therapy like deep tissue massage.
Tense muscle fibres form knots. “Muscle knots are actually myofascial trigger points in muscle or fascial tissue,” Charleston explains. Trigger points are typically classified into two types:
In initial phase the massage therapist quickly understands the state of body and decides the course of treatment. Treatment frequently uses hands, fingers, forearms, and elbows to do initial warm in later phases, a massage therapist tries to find out the tighter knots of muscle and assesses the condition of muscle. To go into deep muscle the therapist uses slower pressure with high intensity and focus on normalizing the area. So for this there’s a significant gain without much of pain.
When a muscle contracts like that, blood flow in that area is restricted. “The theory is that putting pressure on it restricts blood flow to the knot, and releasing the pressure allows more blood to flow in”. The increased blood flow can aid in muscle relaxation.
