The Pressure We Use
We 100% understand that pressure during massage treatment is individual preference. Accordingly, we take great care to tailor your treatment to what you want. On our history form filled out before your first session we ask about the pressure you generally like from massage treatments.
Your therapist will also check in about the pressure they are applying several times throughout your session. Above all, they understand this is your session, and your time and can alter the treatment to be firmer or softer at any times.
Generally, the best way to think of our typical session would be more of a soft tissue massage or a deep tissue massage. We’re trying to make some physical and physiological changes within your body – not just rub some scented oil into your skin.
Finally, don’t be intimidated by the word deep tissue, these treatments are tailored to your wants and needs. Find out more about it below.
Soft Tissue or Deep Tissue Massage
Deep tissue? Sure we get into your muscles – but how deep is deep tissue. Compared to soft tissue, what is the difference?
In short & to be 100% honest they are essentially the same thing.
Firstly, deep tissue is massage of muscles and soft tissues. Think of it as a deeper massage than what you would get at a day spa with the added bonus of spending a little more time on areas of tightness and even some trigger point massage to help ease any pain.
Secondly, Soft tissue massage is the treatment of soft tissues. The same tissues as what we work on with deep tissue massage. It even uses the same techniques – hence why they are essentially the same thing.
Both of these are tailored treatments specific to your aim of the session, your body and your desired pressure.
In summary, if you want a massage, nice and Deep into the muscles tissue, which can have elements of “good pain” we adjust the session to meet this want. If you want a lighter session, that helps to release muscle tension and stress, improve the healing of injuries or helps to lift your mood and make you feel fantastic we tailor your session to meet this desire. This is your time!
