Deep Tissue Massage, Toowoomba

Deep Tissue Massage is a type of massage therapy that utilises firm pressure and slow strokes to reach deeper layers of muscle and fascia (the connective tissue surrounding muscles). These movements help to reduce pain and discomfort while improving the body’s ability to heal itself. Deep Tissue massages are not only relaxing they also help “lengthen and release muscles” that frequently feel tense and get stuck in uncomfortable holding patterns.


The Benefits of Deep Tissue Massage Are:

  • Work with chronic Pain
    Reduces Stress, Anxiety and Muscle Tension
    Helps Lower High Blood Pressure
    Doesn’t have to cause pain to work


Deep tissue massage is a technique that focuses primarily on the deeper layers of muscles and the fascia. Deep tissue massage, however, is not the same as having a regular massage simply with deeper pressure. This technique often involves the therapist using firmer pressure in order to break up scar tissue and physically break down muscle 'knots' or adhesions (band of painful, rigid tissue) that can cause disruptions in circulation and result in pain, limited motion and inflammation. As a result, this particular massage is generally recommended for people who are comfortable with a slightly more intense touch. However, deep tissue massage can also refer to gentle yet sustained pressure targeting the myofascial layer. Deep tissue massages are often associated with pain. This belief that deep pressure equals pain is a myth; however, the benefits of deep tissue massage are beyond question.

Inflammation caused by chronic stress and muscle tension can lead to worsened overall health, longer recovery time, reduced immune function, and cardiovascular problems, such as high blood pressure. Studies have found that massage can help lower cortisol levels and even boost production of the hormone called oxytocin, which relaxes the body and has soothing effects.


Several mechanisms for deep massage’s natural stress-relieving effects include its ability to dilate blood vessels and also lower activity of the limbic system (including the hypothalamus), which is responsible for autonomic nervous system regulation and cortisol secretion. Massage has been shown to improve relaxation by boosting the activity of the parasympathetic nervous system, as measured by heart rate, blood pressure, and heart rate variability.
