Deep Tissue massages are recommended for those individuals who deal with chronic aches and pain in areas such as the neck and back. The focus of this massage is on the deepest layers of muscle tissue, tendons and fascia (the protective layer that surrounds the muscles, bones and joints).
At the beginning of this massage, lighter pressure is generally applied to warm up and prepare the muscles. Specific techniques are then used such as: Stripping and Friction. The techniques used in this massage are used to break up scar tissue and physically break down muscle “knots” that can disrupt circulation and cause pain, limited range of motion and inflammation. After your Deep Tissue massage is complete, it’s common to experience some stiffness or soreness, but it should go away within a day or so. If not, contact your therapist.
One of the main reasons why individuals get a Deep Tissue massage is for the benefits they provide for those dealing with chronic back or neck pain. Aside from the treatment of pain, Deep Tissue massages help to lower high blood pressure and reduce arthritis symptoms. Furthermore, they can also reduce stress, anxiety and muscle tension. Studies found that massage therapy like the Deep Tissue can even help to boost production of the hormone oxytocin, which relaxes the body. Many athletes receive Deep Tissue massages to help improve their athletic performance and recovery time.
