What is a deep tissue massage?
A deep tissue massage is a massage technique that is going to realign the deeper layers of muscles and connective tissues in your body. This type of massage will help relive:
- Chronic aches– specifically low back pain and neck stiffness
- Muscle tightness
- Muscle soreness– especially in the neck and shoulders
The key to a deep tissue massage is breaking up the muscle adhesion (knots) in your body so that muscles will be able to receive more blood and you will be able to have a greater range of motion.
How is a deep tissue massage different from a traditional massage?
A deep tissue is going to be similar to a Swedish massage but will be slower and more concentrated on the areas of pain and discomfort.
The massage therapist will focus on trying to break up the muscle adhesions which will relieve pain and help restore the muscle’s full range of motion.
How can I benefit from a deep tissue massage?
The benefits are almost countless from a deep tissue massage. Just some of the things a deep tissue massage can help with are:
- Lower back pain
- Mobility and Range of Motion
- Piriformis syndrome
- Poor Posture
- Muscle recovery
- High blood pressure
Deep tissues are a great way to help your body to help almost any of your aches and pain that you are suffering from. With these aches and pains gone from your life your overall health will improve after just a couple a visits.
