What are some of the ways in which deep tissue massage helps us?
March 18, 2015
This is a very big truth that massages help our bodies! Deep tissue massage at Spa Break Massage focuses on releasing restrictions in the deeper layer of the muscles, tendons and ligaments. It is effective in releasing deeply held tension, relaxing and smoothing muscles and removing toxins.
Let’s move on to the benefits of a massage:
It helps to improve posture and mobility.
It also helps to lessen tension and the automatic reflexes to stress.
It reduces the blocks that cause muscle tightness.
It helps in improving the functioning of the internal organs and any associated diseases or symptoms.
It also helps to resolves many chronic pain patterns by releasing deeply held emotions which cause tension.
It also helps to increase circulation of blood, lymph, cerebro-spinal and interstitial fluids
Deep tissue massage actually works effectively on the skeletal structure which lies deep within the human body. It can break down scar tissue and crystallization, release toxins, allow oxygen and blood to circulate properly, and loosen muscles.
There are many people who get massages to try and treat crippling diseases, muscle ligament, and tissue injuries. When receiving a deep tissue massage, if done properly, any pain that you have will be gone within one or two days. It also releases chronic patterns of tension in the body through slow strokes and deep finger pressure on the contracted areas.
Using slow strokes and deep pressure or fiction applied across the grain of the muscles not with the grain, deep tissue massage first warms the soft tissue before targeting deeper muscles groups.
