What is Deep Tissue Massage?
Deep tissue massage therapy utilizes the same techniques as the Swedish massage, but with significantly more pressure and deeper strokes. During your session the massage therapist will focus on the deepest layers of muscle tissue, tendons and fascia (the protective layer surrounding muscles, bones and joints) to release the tension build up associated with chronic muscle pain.
Deep tissue therapy is beneficial in more ways than one; a study in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine found that participants’ showed a significant improvement in blood pressure after just one 45 to 60 minute deep tissue massage. High blood pressure is a serious condition that could lead to stroke and / or heart disease if untreated. By simply incorporating massage therapy into your blood pressure management routine you will significantly decrease your chances of developing a life threatening disease.
Not all forms of muscle pain need the intense therapy of a deep tissue massage, please talk with your professional massage therapist to see if the deep tissue method is right for you.
*Deep tissue massage utilizes strong strokes to release pent up tension. Please inform your therapist if the pressure needs adjustment. It is not uncommon for you feel a little soreness during and / or after your massage session. Please drinks lots of water to promote toxin flush and prevent excessive soreness.
