Deep Tissue Massage - is it right for you?
If you have't had a Deep Tissue Massage, you may be missing out on some wonderful benefits to your health. While not everyone needs the intensity of these therapeutic massages, they offer the stimulation needed to improve many health conditions. If you are wondering whether a deep tissue massage is the right option for you, here are a few things you need to know before scheduling your massage.
What is Deep Tissue Massage?
Deep Tissue Massage concentrates on realigning and manipulating the deeper layers of muscle and tissue. The massage strokes are usually slower and with more pressure than classic massage. The results are a more intensified massage with focus on relieving tension and pain in specified areas. The slow, calculated strokes used in Deep Tissue Massage help breakdown pockets of tense tissue that can cause pain, inflammation or reduce range of motion and circulation. By concentrating pressure on these specific points, this tension is released, allowing for better circulation and range of motion in muscles.
Some of the health conditions that can be improved with Deep Tissue Massage include:
Chronic pain Osteoarthritis Muscle injuries- commonly whiplash or sports injuries Sciatica Muscle tension, strain or spasms Carpal tunnel or tennis elbow General soreness
