What is a deep tissue massage?
A deep tissue massage involves more pressure and force, which is applied at a slower pace in order to target the fascia and deeper muscles of the body. These slow, deep strokes enable the massage therapist to realign any fascia and deep muscles that might have become stuck, causing muscle discomfort, cramps or pain when going about our daily lives.
Massaging releases the fascia and muscles, increasing blood flow to muscles that were previously stuck. This increased blood flow allows the muscles to move with ease, reduces inflammation and helps reduce any muscle pain you were once feeling.
Why get a deep tissue massage?
Deep tissue massage is an effective way to treat many conditions, injuries and pains such as repetitive stress injuries, chronic pain, muscle tension, sciatica, fibromyalgia, sports injuries, osteoarthritis and general mobility loss. Since the range of appropriate conditions and injuries for deep tissue massage are so wide, your massage therapist may alter their technique depending on your needs. For example, muscle tension can be released from anywhere in the body, from the neck to the big toe. It’s important to note that it can take multiple massage therapy sessions to fully improve your condition.
