Deep tissue massage…yes, please! With this type of massage, you get relaxation, relief, and recovery as just a few benefits. At Driven Fit, we want you to enhance the experience even further – it’s all about what you do before and after the massage.
Our therapists offer tips on how you can prepare for your massage and what you can do after – both of which will allow you to fully maximize the benefits of a deep tissue massage!
At Driven Fit, we highly recommend massage therapy as part of our total wellness programs. In addition to recovery and maintenance, deep tissue massage therapy offers these benefits:
To fully reap the benefits of massage, we recommend one to four sessions per month. Get your recovery ON with a deep tissue massage; call/text (813) 440-3016 today to book your appointment!
Because massage therapy is both an investment in time and money, it needs to be effective. The best way to get there is to prepare in advance. Here’s how…
Did you know a deep tissue massage releases toxins from your muscles? That’s why it is important that you are well hydrated before your appointment. This will make it easier for your body to flush out the toxins as quickly and efficiently as possible.
Additionally, well-hydrated muscles are more pliable, which makes it easier for our massage therapist to work out those tough knots.
Tip: At least 24 hours prior to your appointment, make sure to start on some heavy-duty hydrating (preferably with water).
Taking a nice, warm shower just before your appointment will make your massage that much more relaxing. Plus, the warm water will help loosen your muscles, which can reduce discomfort during your deep tissue massage.
Who doesn’t love to just throw on a pair of sweats? Wearing comfortable clothes triggers relaxation, both physically and mentally. Plus, it’ll feel a lot better putting comfy clothes back on after your massage, especially if you have any muscle soreness!
Tip: Rather than wearing tight workout tops and pants, opt for super soft, loose clothing.
What is your end goal of getting a massage? Perhaps it’s tension relief in a specific area or healing support from an injury?
Whatever it is, make sure you clearly communicate your goals with your massage therapist so he or she can properly address your concerns. Our South Tampa, FL massage therapists WANT you to tell them your areas of concern, so do not hold back. If you want more (or less) pressure, tell us! Proper communication is a necessity for an effective deep tissue massage.
Prior to your deep tissue massage, our massage therapists, will discuss any problems areas you may have and will address all these concerns during your session. Call our massage therapy studio now for a specialty deep tissue massage.
Your post-massage instructions are pretty similar to what you would do prior to your massage. To fully extend the benefits, here’s what to do…
