When we think Deep Tissue massage the first thing that comes to mind is a variety of elbows and forearms paired with strong hands performed by a lady named Helga.  I think a common misconception of deep tissue massage is that it can be painful.  I’m not going to lie, I’ve had 2 kids naturally and some sessions even I can’t breathe through.  I know pain is relative but for the most part deep tissue technique can be pretty intense and uncomfortable but sometimes necessary.  This technique is used to break up scar tissue or “knots” in the muscle fibres that can disrupt circulation resulting in limited range of motion and chronic pain.

Therapists need to re-educate the muscle in order to help heal those ailing muscles to get them back into recovery mode.  Communication is important during your treatment as your therapist will need to know how deep they can go and what you can tolerate.  But if there was a way where you can get a thorough treatment and not have to worry about toughing it out?  Would you take it?  Will it be the red pill or the blue pill Neo? 

I offer you the infrared sauna at Fluid Day Spa.  By going in for an infrared sauna session before your massage, you can make it a little easier on yourself.  The heat that is emitted from the sauna can penetrate human tissue about 1.5 inches deep

This heat is beneficial as it raises the body’s internal temperature and encourages a much deeper sweat.  The boost in endorphins results in a more relaxed state for your muscles.  This “preheat” will soften your muscles to then allow a deeper massage with little to no pain.  Not only have your muscles warmed up and become more receptive, you also get detoxification benefits too. 

Cortisol levels along with blood pressure have lowered.  Our lymphatic system is now stimulated and ready to release the toxins!  Joints and tendons have become more elastic and also have a reduction in swelling and inflammation.  The circulatory system gets a reboot and from that our heart pumps a little faster and efficiently, bringing more oxygen to the body’s cells.  Sauna sessions typically run for about 20-45 mins but a quick 20 mins before a massage treatment is not only indulgent but complimentary at Fluid!  Add one before your next massage treatment at Fluid Day Spa and make it the ultimate treatment.
