Deep tissue massage therapy is similar to Swedish massage, but the deeper pressure is beneficial in releasing chronic muscle tension. The focus is on the deepest layers of muscle tissue, tendons and fascia (the protective layer surrounding muscles, bones and joints.
Benefits of Deep Tissue Massage:
Stress Relief and Mood Boost:
Tranquility is typically the initial feeling upon walking into a massage room and table. When deep tissue massage is underway, oxytocin and serotonin is triggered and further ignites feelings of relaxation while boosting mood. Stress hormones have also been shown to reduce following deep tissue massage and other forms of massage techniques.
Improves Blood Flow
Rubbing deep muscles and relieving pressures has been shown to improve blood flow. New research further explains there is an improvement in circulation in both athletes and non-exercisers, suggesting the benefit beyond the realm of exercise and correlated muscle injury and soreness. Blood pressure and heart rate can also be lowered following deep tissue massage.
Deep tissue massage is frequently used as a rehabilitation option. The stretching and twisting of injured muscles can relax them and ultimately encourage healing. Additionally, deep tissue massage can promote a greater range of motion in previously damaged muscles and ease pain associated with fibromyalgia and other chronic conditions.
The relaxation induced during the massage might feel like the endpoint, but massage care continues after leaving. First off, rest your body. Though you may feel relaxed and calm, it is important to remember the muscles have been intensely manipulated and worked on, thus needing time to recover. Try to schedule the massage appointment when other obligations and responsibilities will not follow. Continue care by drinking water and grabbing a bite to eat. Lightheadedness may occur and water and food can counteract dehydration and low blood sugars.
