It's no secret that deep tissue massages are one of the most beneficial massage services you can undergo. Practitioners use intense pressure to alleviate tension through to the deepest layers of your muscles.
How often is it recommended to get a deep tissue massage?
Deep tissue massages can benefit many people, however the frequency of your bookings will largely depend on the condition and symptoms that you present with. For example, the number of your appointments will vary if you have an acute injury, chronic pain or a more complicated condition.
Let's take a look at some examples:
1. Professional athletes
This will depend on what level of activity you are currently involved in - be it training, competition or recovery. Massage practitioners are well-versed in the most suitable regularity for each of their clients and all decisions on bookings should be discussed with them.
Deep tissue massages are especially useful to athletes as they aid in muscle recovery, protect against injury, and prepare the body for high volumes of physical activity.

2. The average person
For every-day people looking to enjoy the benefits of a deep tissues massage, it is best to undergo general maintenance massages. This means a monthly session with your practitioner.
The benefits of regular deep tissue massages
1. Allows the body to repair itself
Undergoing regular deep tissue massage sessions helps teach the body to repair itself by manipulating the connective tissues. This ultimately lengthens through the soft tissues allowing the body to return to its natural, healthy, pain-free state.
2. Improves range of movement
Sometimes scarring occurs deep in the body when you damage muscles, ligaments or tendons. This kind of scarring is what deep tissue massages aim to resolve - ultimately allowing for a greater range of motion and easier movements.
3. Educates the client about their physical conditions and how to reduce damage
When you work with a qualified practitioner you will also learn more about how to reduce damage to your body. These sessions will educate you on what your current physical condition is and how to ensure you are protecting yourself against further injury.
