Deep Tissue Massage FAQ’s

People are often unsure what to expect during a deep tissue massage. Will it hurt? what should I wear? should I book a male or female practitioner? These are common questions we hear from people booking deep tissue massage for the first time. Our practitioners will ensure that you understand exactly what to expect and receive a great treatment. Below are answers to the most common questions we receive about deep tissue massage. We hope you find it helpful. However, if you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

No, in our opinion deep tissue massage should never be painful. However, some areas of muscle tension can be uncomfortable. To avoid any unnecessary discomfort, good communication between patient and practitioner is essential. In order to achieve relaxation of the muscles, it is important to use just the right amount of pressure.

You should wear whatever you’re most comfortable in. For females, either underwear or gym wear such as shorts and vest top is fine. For males, a t-shirt with shorts or boxer shorts is fine. However, you will always be draped in towels during treatment and only the area being treated will be uncovered. For more information visit our page what to expect.

It is your preference whether to choose a male or female practitioner. However, it is a misconception that only male practitioners are capable of applying enough pressure for the treatment to be effective. A skilled practitioner regardless of whether they are male or female are capable of delivering an effective deep tissue massage treatment. It is important to appreciate that more pressure is not always better.

Our page what to expect covers this topic in detail. It covers everything you can expect from first and follow up appointments.
