May 23rd, 2011

Deep tissue Massage may assist in relief of severe tension in deep muscle tissues.  Deep tissue massage which focuses on muscles located below the surface of the top muscles are massaged .  This type of deep tissue massage may be used for people who endure constant muscle tension, participate in vigorous physical activity.

This type of intense massage, however, is not for everyone. There can be a gentle to fair amount of discomfort for the duration of the massage as tense muscles are worked. Sometimes one to two days of soreness can follow a deep tissue massage.

Studies have found deep tissue massage helpful for:

  1. Stress relief
  2. Increased blood flow
  3. Reduced chronic pain
  4. Breaks up scar tissue  
  5. Restored mobility
  6. Improves posture
  7. Improve emotional health
  8. Stiffness

Regardless of massage benefits it isn’t intended as a replacement for standard medical care. Be sure to inform your doctor that you would like to try a deep tissue massage and follow any standard treatment plans he prescribes

Beyond the benefits for specific conditions or diseases, some people enjoy massage because it often involves caring, comfort, a sense of empowerment.

Types of Deep Tissue Massage:

  1. Trigger Point Therapy When adhesions are detected deep within muscles, trigger point therapy is used to ease tension and promote better blood circulation. Trigger point massage involves applying medium to strong pressure to one area for as long as 30 seconds.
  2. Rolfing – According to the Rolf Institute of Structural Integration, Rolfing is a system of palpation, discrimination and integration of the body, its tissues and muscles
  3. Neuromuscular Therapy – Neuromuscular deep massage employs specialized massage strokes to relieve muscle pain.

If you are at ease with a stronger, more intense massage as well as the soreness that may go along with it, then a deep tissue massage may be for you. Contact you’re nearest licensed professional massage therapist who is experienced in deep tissue massage.
