When is Deep Tissue Massage too much?

Have you woken up with neck pain? shoulder pain? or back pain? Even a hot shower will not make it go away.  What do you do?  Take an ibuprofen or go to a yoga class or maybe just ignore it and hope it goes away.  Deep Tissue Massage is good therapy for relieving those painful knots and stress that weigh you down.  Finding those knots and then working them out makes Deep Tissue a soothing and effective approach to ridding you of that uncomfortable muscle tension in your neck, shoulders and back. You come in with pain and leave about an hour later pain free and smiling. So the next time you have a flare up consider scheduling a massage with Strictly Therapeutic Massage.  You will be pleasantly surprised!

Therapeutic Massage: Is it a no pain no gain game?

I often hear from clients that they have a high pain tolerance so they can handle alot of pressure. Some clients will even say that they expect the massage to be painful but that in a couple of days they hope to feel amazing! Are you that client? So what is the difference between a strong massage and one that is painful? The short answer is the purpose for the client’s visit.  A client in pain prior to the massage will likely experience pain during the massage especially when they are asking for deep pressure to work the knot out.  At Strictly Therapeutic the belief is to try to romance the muscle tension by applying pressure in waves.  Clients that are unable to relax during the session because the pressure is too much can become even more tense which defeits the purpose for their visit.  On the other hand, a therapist that is able to layer in their strokes, working deeper  into the tissues slowely with the body’s permission, can aide their client more effectively without testing their pain threshold throughout the whole massage.  I have had many clients over the years comment that they felt looser, with better mobility and more relaxed becasue the pain was diminished or completely gone after one session.  In many cases, they did manage to fall  asleep for a short while during the session.
