Your ticket to deep relaxation

This article was first published on 31 October 2022.

Have you been feeling sore lately? Sitting for hours in front of a computer can do that. Treat yourself to a deep tissue massage at one of these spas and clinics in Singapore to relax your muscles and mind.


Benefits of deep tissue massage


Deep tissue massage is typically used to treat soreness or pain in your muscles and bones, such as strains and sports injuries. The technique uses slow, even, deep strokes that work the muscles and the surrounding connective tissues. The result is a reduction in tension on that muscle and the unbonding of the tough scar tissue that formed after the injury. It also poses an increased blood flow and lowered inflammation.

Some examples of aches, pains, and injuries that benefit from a deep tissue massage are chronic lower back pain, tennis elbow, and plantar fasciitis (heel pain). You will need to inform the spa about these conditions beforehand so they can confirm if you can get a deep tissue massage.

Now that you know about its benefits, here are some places where you can get deep tissue massage in Singapore.
