Relieving Muscle Tension and Pain with Deep Tissue Massage

Do you suffer from pain due to muscle overuse or injury? A deep tissue massage can help relieve your pain.

What Is Deep Tissue Massage?
Deep tissue massage is a technique that uses deep, slow strokes with concentrated pressure to reach the inner muscles. The massage reaches the underlying fascia and muscles that support the joints. Deep tissue massage is more intense than a regular massage because it’s primarily used to increase range of motion and help with injury recovery.

What Conditions Can It Treat?
Deep tissue massage is often used to treat chronic pain caused by tight muscles. It’s also a treatment used to increase mobility. Repetitive strain injuries like carpal tunnel syndrome often improve with this type of massage, as well as injuries from whiplash or sports. It can even help improve posture by releasing tension and allowing the inner muscles to heal.

What Are the Benefits?
A major benefit of deep tissue massage is that it provides relief from chronic pain due to muscle tension. The effects are similar to those of anti-inflammatory medications, so you can have relief without medication. Breaking up scar tissue and relieving tension allows blood and oxygen to properly circulate to help keep muscles loose to prevent future injury.
