Deep Soft Tissue Release

What is Deep Tissue Release? 

A massage technique that involves the application of deep sustained pressure to target the inner layers of the muscles and connective tissues using hands, thumbs, or elbows with a range of manipulative strokes including effleurage, petrissage, wringing, and trigger pointing to treat different musculoskeletal conditions. What are the benefits? Deep tissue release is beneficial on both physical and psychological levels by relieving pain and promoting faster healing for the soft tissues.

 The numerous benefits of Deep Soft Tissue Release include: 

  • Flushing toxins and lactic acid from the body and muscles. 
  • Breaking down scar tissues that form following an injury. 
  • Improving blood circulation and lymphatic drainage 
  • Improving the health and performance of soft tissues. 
  • Relieving any built-up muscle tension. 
  • Relieving mental stress. 
  • Improves joint range of motion and muscle flexibility. 
  • Increasing cellular exchange which is the removal of waste products and deliverance of nutrients. 
  • Aids recovery from DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness)


Who can get it?

 Deep soft tissue is an appropriate treatment for anyone who needs soft tissues mobilization including both sports and non-sports men and women. The selection of the technique and intensity depends on your health condition, injury, and profession. Sports participants who attend regular training programs need regular sessions of deep soft tissue release to sustain the health and flexibility of their muscles to optimize their performance and prevent injuries. Individuals who suffer from musculoskeletal conditions will benefit from the therapeutic effects alongside physiotherapy treatment.
