Frequently asked questions about Deep Tissue Massage in Santorini

Are Deep Tissue Massages supposed to hurt?2024-02-08T19:49:13+02:00

Deep tissue massages can cause discomfort, but they should not be excessively painful. We recommend a pressure level deeper than a Swedish massage during a deep tissue session. However, it’s crucial to find a balance – deep enough for effectiveness but not to the point of causing discomfort or tension. If you find it difficult to breathe or experience muscle tension due to pain, it diminishes the overall value of the massage and may reduce its benefits. This could indicate that the therapist delved too deeply into the muscle tissue prematurely. Sometimes, additional warming up of the muscles is needed before progressing to deeper pressure.

What not to do before a Deep Tissue Massage?2024-02-08T19:48:27+02:00

Before a deep tissue massage, it is advised to avoid certain activities. Firstly, it is recommended to refrain from consuming alcohol, although drinking water is acceptable.

Additionally, it is best to avoid sunbathing as it may lead to skin inflammation and irritation, especially if one experiences a sunburn. Another suggestion is to refrain from eating a large meal prior to the massage.

Moreover, it is advisable not to apply lotion or topical medication on the body. Lastly, it is recommended to avoid taking prescription pain medication before the deep tissue massage.

What is the difference between a Deep tissue massage and Swedish massage?2024-03-01T12:45:14+02:00

Wondering about the difference between a Deep tissue and Swedish massage? Understanding your specific preferences and needs is important to decide which is the best fit for you.

Swedish Massage: This classic massage technique is perfect for promoting relaxation and stress relief. The therapist employs long, flowing strokes, kneading, and circular movements, focusing on overall well-being and enhancing blood circulation to increase relaxation.

Deep Tissue Massage: If you are dealing with muscle tension, chronic pain, or tightness, a Deep Tissue Massage might be the solution. This massage involves applying deep pressure and specialized techniques to target stubborn muscle issues. While it can be more intense, it effectively releases deep-seated tension.

Both massages cater to different needs, and the “better” choice depends on your individual preferences, comfort level with pressure, and specific massage goals. Communicate your preferences and concerns with your massage therapist, allowing them to tailor the session to address your unique requirements. Some individuals find a delightful balance by opting for a combination of both techniques in a single session, commonly referred to as a “Swedish-Deep Tissue” massage. This approach ensures a comprehensive and personalized massage experience that targets muscle tension, applies deep pressure, and utilizes various massage techniques for optimal results.

What to except after a Deep Tissue Massage?2024-02-08T19:47:47+02:00

After undergoing a deep tissue massage, it’s common to experience several reactions as your body responds to the therapeutic session. Here’s what you might encounter:

1. Muscle Soreness:

It’s normal to feel some muscle soreness or aching, similar to the sensation after an intense workout. This discomfort typically diminishes within 24-36 hours, and staying well-hydrated by drinking extra water can help alleviate it.

2. Discomfort:

You might experience mild discomfort, especially if your muscles are unaccustomed to the depth of the treatment. Any persistent discomfort should be promptly communicated to your massage therapist. Applying ice to the affected area can provide relief. Occasionally, a mild post-massage headache may occur but usually resolves with time.

3. Fatigue:

Feeling tired or fatigued after the massage is common and indicates that your muscles are finally relaxing, and stress is being relieved. This fatigue is temporary, and it’s perfectly acceptable to rest or even take a nap after the session. Some individuals even find themselves drifting off during the massage.

These responses are part of your body’s natural reaction to the deep tissue massage, signifying that the therapy is effectively addressing muscle tension and contributing to overall well-being. Should you have any concerns or if these reactions persist, feel free to discuss them with your massage therapist for further guidance.

How long should you wait between Deep Tissue Massages?2024-02-08T19:47:13+02:00

A recommended interval of at least 48 hours is advised between deep tissue massages. This timeframe allows the body sufficient time to rebalance following the intense therapy. For optimal results, a two-day gap between sessions is considered ideal. The frequency of sports massage may vary based on individual training schedules. Regular massage, however, can contribute to the maintenance of muscle health, flexibility, and overall range of movement.

What are the benefits of a Deep Tissue Massage?2024-02-08T19:50:05+02:00

The benefits of a deep tissue massage are numerous, encompassing:

  • Alleviates persistent muscle tension and knots.
  • Diminishes muscle soreness and stiffness.
  • Enhances blood circulation and the flow of oxygen.
  • Facilitates the breakdown of scar tissue and adhesions.
  • Alleviates chronic pain and enhances mobility.
  • Contributes to the recuperation from sports injuries.
  • Induces relaxation and reduces stress levels.

Genny Sutko,

“Ergina is very gentle, professional, kind and also very caring person. I booked my massage with Ergina during my holidays in Santorini as a birthday present! I didn’t know which treatment I wanted to have and asked for Ergina’s recommendation. She was very caring and chose treatment herself. After the massage I felt so calm, peaceful, I finally could relax and sleep well after months of stress. My face instantly started to look healthier and lit up. Also, the next day after the massage my period began which was very good news for me. The next day I came back to Egina again for another session because I have never felt so good after any treatments.
Ergina has very kind and gentle energy, practices with her are truly healing. She cares deeply about the person and tries to find what exactly could be helpful for you in this period of life. If I would stay longer in Santorini I would use everyday to have sessions. After the session Ergina told me that we did Reiki massage. I have tried several similar treatments later in Portugal and Austria but it was not the same. I highly recommend you to meet Ergina and experience her gentle energy and caring hands!”

Katsiaryna Banar,

“I booked a sound bath massage with Ergina and she was the absolute best! My comfort and experience was her top priority and it was one of the most relaxing massages I’ve ever had! She travelled all the way to my air bnb with her table, and worked with me to find the best place for setting up.
I couldn’t recommend Soma Rei Wellness any more!”

Morgan Healey,

“Wonderful experience. Eli was lovely and professional. She came and quickly set up in my room, she brought everything needed including music. The massage was relaxing and firm. Definitely recommend.”

Emma Crupi,

“Wowww! What An amazing massage! My husband and I hired Ergina and Mos to come to our place. They set up on the back porch, and went to work. They worked very gently yet tough on the tight spots. They’re definitely skilled at what they do. Having many massages in the past, and being very picky, this is one of the best massages I’ve had in a long time! (Ergina was my masseuse and Mos was my husbands.)”
