Deep tissue massage targets the deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue. The massage therapist uses slower strokes or friction techniques across the grain of the muscle.
Deep tissue massage is used for chronically tight or painful muscles, repetitive strain, postural problems, or recovery from injury. People often feel sore for one to two days after deep tissue massage.
Deep Tissue Massage is a general term covering a range of strategies which deals with muscle release at a deeper level. Other modalities that include deep tissue massage are remedial and sports massage.
Neuromuscular massage techniques are used to test muscle tissues that have become imbalanced. Effective massaging of tight and painful musculature using specific hand techniques and strokes, bring about relief by increasing flexibility and reducing muscle tensions. Deep Tissue specialists treat low back, shoulder pain, carpal tunnel, sciatica, headaches, knees and neck pain.
Micro scarring can be caused by injuries and surgery. These ailments are commonly benefited from deep tissue therapy. Often the treatment and pressure begins gently and gradually escalates to a point of temporary discomfort. Treatment ranges from therapeutic to corrective in nature. Deep tissue massage can cause an increase in muscle strength, tone and healing.
Deep Tissue Massage therapy usually involves warming the skin and superficial soft tissue prior to the therapist using extra pressure to access the deeper connective tissue underneath.
Deep Tissue Massage Benefits
Unlike Swedish massage therapy, which is used for relaxation and rejuvenation, deep tissue massage usually focuses on a specific problem, such as:
Repetitive strain injury (RSI), e.g. carpal tunnel syndrome
- Limited mobility
- Injury rehabilitation (e.g. whiplash, falls, sports injuries)
- More energy
- Bad posture
- Improved sense of well being
- Muscle tension and spasms
- Chronic pain
