Hove residents can choose deep tissue massage to address long term muscular aches, help injuries to heal, reduce stiffness and increase recovery time after exercise. Although people often feel very relaxed after their deep tissue massage, it isn’t a massage to choose if relaxation is all you’re looking for as it can be quite intense as the massage therapists have to apply quite strong pressure at times but it’s this strong pressure which makes it so effective at treating the deeper layers of muscle and connective tissues. The Float Spa’s massage therapists are fully qualified and experienced in this type of treatment and here’s how they use it to relieve your aches and pains:
When you arrive for your massage appointment at The Float Spa, you will have already chosen how long you’d like your session to be and you’ll have an opportunity to discuss your issues with the massage therapist before getting undressed for the massage. All our therapists are very experienced so will know the best approach to take to help your particular ailment. Once they’ve explained what they plan to do to help you, they will leave the room to allow you to get undressed down to your underwear and get comfortable beneath a towel laying on your back.
Deep tissue massage applies strong pressure so, once they have applied the more gentle techniques to relax your muscles initially, they will apply some pressure which may hurt in certain areas as the muscular ‘knots’ can be quite stubborn so require a little force to remove. If you notice any particularly sharp pain or if the discomfort becomes too great, just let them know and they’ll stop. You’ll leave the session feeling very relaxed and, perhaps, a little woozy. Our massage therapists recommend not doing any exercise or strenuous work after the session and making sure you drink lots of water to help clear toxins. You may experience some muscle soreness or aches later on but these should pass quickly.
