Are you in the Charleston area in need of professional massage work for an injury, pain or discomfort? Deep tissue massage is a revolutionary approach to a number of common problems experienced by millions of people like you. When pain is neglected, it can leave you behind the pack and out of whack. Tropical Tan & Spa is just around the corner with solutions up their sleeve to tend to your every need.

Before moving forward, knowing the origins of deep tissue work will help you have a better understanding of the massage. Greek, Chinese and Egyptian cultures are altogether credited with the creation and prosperity of general massage therapy. But Therese Pfrimmer, a Canadian physiotherapist, is known to have specifically crafted a massage to offset the revolting pain caused by her leg paralysis. After a few early moments of trial and error, she stumbled upon an innovative massage technique that penetrated deeper muscle tissue and reversed the paralysis.

Tropical Tan & Spa has molded the same deep tissue massage into an art form, with a foundation built on early mechanics of the therapy. Staff is fully trained on the fundamentals of every maneuver and technique that applies to various subsets of pain. Neuromuscular therapy (NMT) and myofascial release are two examples that seek different results. For one, NMT focuses on striking a balance between the central nervous system and connective and muscle tissue. The latter method is one that stretches and lengthens connective tissue coverings around muscles.

Preparation is an important factor when planning for a deep tissue massage, and there is no cut and dry way to do it right. But Tropical Tan & Spa makes the choice easy by combining a free steam sauna session with the massage of your choice. Saunas are excellent for clearing the mind and refreshing the body before a soothing massage session. The warm, misty vapor it emits will flush impurities and toxins from the skin and even improve blood circulation.

Like everything, injury is one of life’s natural consequences. There’s no specific trigger that sets them in motion—competitive athletes and non-athletes alike fall victim. Other issues may not be caused by injury, however. Fibromyalgia, plantar fasciitis and sciatica are all painful examples experienced by people from different walks of life. Thus, treatment becomes all the more relevant and acts as a buffer to further complications.

Deep pressure is a requirement to successfully work through dense pockets of scar tissue or trying to repair muscle adhesions. Connective tissue called fascia is another modality that can become problematic if left in a state of tightness. And if treatment is avoided, joint mobility considerably weakens. Luckily, deep tissue massage is the ideal treatment that brings you back to full strength in no time.

Tropical Tan & Spa is THE choice for deep tissue massage in Charleston. Conveniently located at 223 Calhoun Street—only a block from the College of Charleston—you can strut on in with a smile knowing you are in good hands. And if massage therapy isn’t your thing, try red light therapy or an organic spray tan on for size! Touch base with us for more information on any offered service by calling (843) 793-4595. We look forward to hearing from you!
