Did you know that The Spa at Breckenridge’s Deep tissue massage can be a powerful pain reliever? Our Deep Tissue Massage was developed to reach deep muscle and tissues to reduce chronic pain, stiffness, and persistent pain in areas such as the neck or lower back.

VeryWell cites a survey by Consumer Reports that found “34,000 people ranked deep tissue massage more effective in relieving osteoarthritis pain than physical therapy, exercise, prescription medications, chiropractic, acupuncture, diet, glucosamine, and over-the-counter drugs.” After a light warm up of your muscles, a message therapist uses deep pressure to target muscles and fascia, relieving knots and breaking up scar tissue.

Here are a few tips to get the most out of your deep tissue massage and enjoy all of the benefits.


Drink Water

Talk About Pain

If you are experiencing pain during the massage, tell your massage therapist. It is often assumed that a deep tissue massage should induce pain. You will experience strong pressure, but pain is not necessarily a good sign. Pain can cause your muscles to tense up which is the opposite of what deep tissue massage is trying to accomplish. When they know you are experiencing pain, a therapist can adjust so that the massage will be effective without pain.

Wait to Work Out

Your muscles are getting a workout during the massage, they need time to rest. If you exercise right away, you may undo the work your massage therapist did, or worse sustain an injury. Experts interviewed by Women’s Health suggest waiting 12-24 hours after a deep tissue massage before working out.

Talk to Your Doctordeep tissue massage in Breckenridge CO

If you have any medical concerns, talk with your doctor before you have a deep tissue massage. Deep tissue massage can provide relief for many different chronic problems, but it is important to check with your doctor to make sure it is right for you. You should also tell your massage therapist if there are any concerns they should be aware of.

Deep tissue massage can transform how you feel. Relieving pain and stress can give you more energy, better range of motion and improve your daily living. Work with your massage therapist to get the most out of your massages.
