DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE
BENEFITS OF DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE
Deep tissue massage has continued to increase in popularity, due in part to its ability to release chronic tension/pain.
In many cases, a Deep Tissue Massage has replaced the Classic Swedish Massage in terms of frequency of use. Whereas visitors to any spa around the country may have traditionally sought out a massage that simply relaxed, now people are seeking a massage that also stimulates, conditions, and heals.
WHAT IS DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE?
Deep Tissue Massage uses specific techniques - consisting of a slower, stronger massage that stimulates deep into muscles. It aims to release the chronic patterns of tension in the body through slow strokes and deep pressure on the contracted areas, either following or going across the fibres of the muscles, tendons and fascia.
Muscles use energy supplies derived from the blood. When muscles are tense, blood vessels are constricted, slowing the flow of blood which deprives the muscle of oxygen and nutrients, leading to inflammation and a build up of toxins in the muscle tissue.
A Deep Tissue Massage helps loosen muscle tissues, releases toxins from muscles and improves blood & oxygen flow to contracted areas.
WHAT CAN IT TREAT?
Deep Tissue Massage can be especially helpful for athletes who expose their muscles to daily, intensive conditioning. This type of massage will noticeably loosen muscles, alleviate pain and increase mobility.
However, you don’t have to be an athlete to enjoy the benefits of Deep Tissue Massage. Those suffering from certain conditions may also find Deep Tissue Massage to be quite therapeutic. Sufferers of chronic tension, chronic pain, fibromyalgia, oedema, muscle cramping, pain after a car accident or injury and even carpal tunnel syndrome may find significant relief from Deep Tissue Massage.
The length of a Deep Tissue Massage session will vary depending on what you need. A session can last between 60 and 90 minutes.
