Deep tissue massage is a great way to improve your overall health. This type of massage uses firm pressure and slow strokes to reach and relax tense muscle groups so as to relieve tension in the deeper layers of the muscle tissue and tendons – down to about three inches below the superficial layer of the muscles.
Here are five benefits you can look forward to if you decide to go for this kind of massage:
Our physical and emotional stress often manifests as knots in our bodies, affecting our overall health. A deep tissue massage will help eliminate tension, allowing you to relax. It also benefits your overall health by lowering cortisol (the stress hormone) and increasing oxytocin levels. The more rejuvenated we feel, the healthier we become!
Pain and stress often occur together. Pain from your daily grind leads to tension and increased stress levels, creating a negative feedback loop. A deep tissue massage can loosen tight muscle clusters (especially on the back and shoulders) and increase blood flow in the area to reduce inflammation. Deep tissue massage also helps in relieving the symptoms of sciatica pain. The amount of pain gets reduced by the pressure and strokes over a period of time.
Deep tissue massage focuses on the deep layers of muscle and connective tissue and is often used to treat chronic pain, tension headaches, and other types of musculoskeletal problems. This type of massage often stimulates increased circulation by increasing oxygen flow throughout your body. In particular, deep tissue massage can improve circulation to the feet helping those with cold feet.
Deep tissue massage has been shown to rehabilitate injured muscles. Injured muscles need special attention. A deep tissue massage will not just relax them and facilitate the movement of toxins in your body, but it’ll help stretch tight or twisted muscles too!
Massage is a great way to improve overall health. Deep tissue massage is especially beneficial because it can lead to better posture and overall physical well-being.
