Deep tissue massage is to apply firm pressure and slow strokes to reach deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue surrounding muscles. It’s beneficial for chronic aches and pain and contracted areas such as a stiff neck and upper back, low back pain, leg muscle tightness, and sore shoulders. It’s effective in treating repetitive stress injuries such as tennis elbow or carpal tunnel syndrome and can help reduce the symptoms of osteoarthritis.

The Benefits of a Deep Tissue Massage
1. Pain Reduction
Most patients will request a deep tissue massage for pain relief. By massaging the skin, the activity of inflammatory cytokines is slowed and increases the number of proteins that signal the muscles to produce more mitochondria.
2. Optimizing Joint Mobility
As desk jobs become increasingly sedentary, more employees are experiencing muscle pains and inflexibility. Improve one’s range of motion and stimulate the body’s natural lubricants.
3. Injury Prevention
For those suffering from delayed onset of muscle soreness (DOMS) and muscle fatigue, a deep tissue massage can help with lactate clearance and injury prevention. This form of massage makes it a popular healing method among athletes.
4. Improving Posture
Has someone been telling you to sit up straight? Did you know that a deep tissue massage can help alleviate the habit of bad posture, one of the leading causes of back pain? Improve poor posture with positive lifestyle changes and deep tissue massages techniques that help restore your body’s natural alignment and treat sore muscles.
5. Decreasing Stress
When you feel stressed, your body produces excess cortisol, leading to other health problems. A deep tissue massage session can help lower the production of stress hormones and increase the production of serotonin and oxytocin, known for boosting your overall mood and preventing depression.
If you have any questions, please give us a call and we would be happy to address them. If you have a history of blood clots or recent surgery or any other major medical operation please speak with your physician before booking a deep tissue massage appointment.
