Similar to Swedish Massage. Deep tissue massage offers deeper pressure by focusing on the deeper layers of muscles and fascia (a thin, membrane-like fibrous sheath that encloses and connects muscles) in the body.
Deep tissue therapeutic massage can reduce chronic pain by increasing the flow of blood through the body, which reduces the inflammation that causes pain. Because it facilitates the movement of toxins from the muscles and helps stretch tight or twisted muscle mass, deep tissue massage can help promote healing.
Deep tissue therapeutic massage can also help to alleviate muscle tension that is often a side effect of chronic pain by loosening tight tissue adhesions or knots. This release of muscle stress and tension can also have a beneficial effect on blood pressure.
Over time, continued deep tissue can help break up scar tissue in the body by improving lymphatic circulation and drainage to improve tissue flexibility.
Deep tissue massage can help increase the body’s production of serotonin, the hormone that promotes happiness and good feelings.
