Deep Tissue Massage is the manual treatment of the deeper layers of muscle tissue. The work is slow, deep, and very specific – working either against or with the fibres of muscles, tendons or ligaments.
Deep tissue massage can break up and eliminate scar tissue from previous injuries. A common problem is that stressed muscles can block nutrients and oxygen from getting to where they need to go, and this will cause inflammation that allows toxins to build up in your muscle tissue. During Swedish massage, usually the therapist will only use their hand and forearm, however with a Deep Tissue Massage, elbows, fingers, and ceramic, wooden, or glass tools may be used for optimal penetration of the muscle. The speed of the strokes will be slower than a classic massage.
Among the many benefits of Deep Tissue Massage:
- reduced pain
- improved sleep
- reduced stress and anxiety
- improved mobility;
- increased range of motion (ROM);
- restored ease of movement
- reduced muscle hyper tonicity, tension and spasm
- reduced scar tissue and other fascial adhesions, which can improve both circulatory and nerve function .
- promote circulation (of both blood and lymph)
- reduce ischemia (by releasing hypertoned muscles and reducing facial adhesions, thereby improving circulation
There may be some soreness after a deep tissue massage; however, the soreness should go away within a day or two. The massage should not hurt but will be a little more uncomfortable than a classic massage. If you feel the pressure is too hard, tell the masseur. Do not act tough if the massage causes severe pain or the pressure is too hard, as it may do more damage than restoration.
Some people think that if you just push hard enough, a knot could be worked out in one session, but this is not the case. For built-up tension and chronic knots (adhesions) deep tissue massage is just one part of the treatment. If you do not exercise, correct your posture, and/or employ relaxation techniques along with Deep Tissue Massage you may not get the full benefits from your massage.
