How to Deep Tissue Massage the Hamstrings

Learn how to massage the hamstrings using deep tissue massage techniques from celebrity massage therapist Meagan Holub in this Howcast video.


So we're going to be working on the hamstrings, giving a little deep tissue. I'm using a little bit more lotion this time, because it is a broader area. And even if you have too much, you can just start down here at the base.

So I'm going to be using my knuckles or fists, either one. Just do a nice circle around that hip joint. You don't have to stop right there at the top of the hamstring, because it actually feels really good to follow all the way through.

You can also, of course, use your forearm. This is going to give a nice, broad, direct pressure all the way up that hamstring and cover a lot of the area. When you get up here to that sits bone, don't bounce over it. Just go nice and slow. You can actually sit there just a minute. Put a little extra pressure on it.

And then again. Pull right through that glute. You're going to want to make sure that you get the inside and the outside of that hamstring. Make sure you get the whole area covered.

And that is how you give a deep tissue massage to the hamstring.
