Deep Tissue Massage
Deep tissue massage targets chronic tension in muscles that lie far below the body’s surface. Deep muscle techniques involve slow strokes, direct pressure or friction movements that go across the muscle grain.
When there is chronic muscle tension or injury, there are most likely adhesions (bands of painful, rigid tissue) in the muscles, ligaments and tendons. Adhesions can block circulation and cause pain, reduced movement, and inflammation. Deep tissue massage works by physically breaking down these adhesions to relieve pain and restore the body's normal movement.
Massage therapists will use their fingers, thumbs or occasionally even elbows to apply the needed pressure. It is especially helpful for chronically tense and contracted areas such as stiff necks, low back tightness, and sore shoulders. Some of the same strokes are used as classic massage but the movement is slower and the pressure is deeper and concentrated on areas of tension and pain.
Unlike other massage therapies, that are used for relaxation, deep tissue massage can focus on a specific problem, like chronic pain, or limited or reduced mobility, it can also aid in recovery from injuries like whiplash, falls and some sports injuries, it has been proven to help with repetitive strain injuries, such as carpal tunnel syndrome, osteoarthritis pain, fibromyalgia, and muscle spasms.
