Is it best to ask a therapist to focus on one/two or multiple areas during a 60 minute deep tissue massage?

Just asking to make sure I get the most out of my massages, and to enable the therapist the right amount of time to focus on certain areas.

Good afternoon Larne,

Thanks for your question.

Yes if you have a specific muscular problem, then 60 minutes is best for a specific treatment. That way time is not wasted working on full body.

There’s different ways this can be done. As a therapist I don’t really mind what treatment is booked be it sports massage or deep tissue. It just depends what your goal is. If it’s to release contractured muscles, then I would say focus on the specific areas, or say 2-3 areas maximum, with stretches included if necessary.

Deep tissue would generally be a full body treatment with deep pressure, so for best results I would pick a therapist who does both Deep tissue and sports massage, so you can get the best of the treatment.

If you feel like you need to relax if you have had a busy week, then you can have full body with a little more emphasis on the sore areas.

Hope this helps?

Thank you for all the detail!

Sounds great!
