In Dublin Sports Injury Clinic, we provide Deep Tissue Massage to active patients, like runners, gym goers, or typical office desk workers. Deep tissue massage is one form of massage therapy that focuses on the deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue in the body.
Some of the same strokes as traditional massage therapy may be used. Still, the movement is generally slower. The pressure will be deeper and concentrated on the areas where the patient feels tension and pain, mainly on the fascia and connective tissue. Usually, these structures can tighten, causing either pain or restriction in joint movement. This affects how your body moves which will impair performance.
In Dublin Sports Injury Clinic, we are trained to go deeper than just the muscle and, in many cases, will also perform some mobilizations to the underlying joints and ligaments.
