Between sitting on an airplane or seat of a car for multiple hours, sleeping in hotel beds, walking around site-seeing, and all the other activities you’ve done on vacation, your body may be tired and sore from all that extra activity. Consider a Deep Tissue Massage when you’re back home for some after-vacay recovery.
Deep Tissue Massage is a type of massage therapy which involves applying firm pressure and slow strokes to reach deeper layers of muscle and fascia (the connective tissue surrounding muscles). This massage style is used to relieve pain in neck, upper back, lower back, legs, and shoulders. Deep Tissue techniques are meant to break down muscle or “knots.” Lighter pressure is applied at the beginning to prep the muscles for deeper strokes after the muscles have been stretched and warmed up.
Deep Tissue Massage may result in soreness because it is meant to break down knotted muscle tissue and release any toxins left in the muscle. We recommend an Epsom salt bath and drinking lots of water after receiving a Deep Tissue Massage for a quick recovery.
During vacation it is especially important to hydrate so you can be at the top of your game for all the activities and movement you’ll be doing. If you receive a Deep Tissue Massage really make sure to hydrate before and after. This style of massage is designed to release knots and build up in the muscles. Water will help to flush all of those toxins out of your body and alleviate any soreness afterwards.
