    Consultation

    Your massage therapist will likely start with a brief consultation to discuss your health history, any specific areas of concern or pain, and your goals for the session.

    Preparation

    You will be asked to lie down on a massage table, usually undressing to your comfort level and covering yourself with a sheet or towel. The therapist may ask you to start face down or face up, depending on the areas to be worked on.

    Technique

    Unlike a Swedish massage which uses long, flowing strokes, deep tissue massage involves slower strokes and deep pressure focused on specific areas of tension and pain. The therapist may use their forearms, elbows, knuckles, and even thumbs to apply pressure.

    Communication

    It’s important to communicate with your therapist throughout the session. Let them know if the pressure is too intense or if you feel any discomfort. They can adjust their technique accordingly.

    After-effects

    After the massage, you may feel some soreness or stiffness, which is normal and should subside within a day or so. It’s important to drink plenty of water to help flush out toxins released from your muscles during the massage.
