Deep Tissue Massage – Purpose, Goals and Treatment

The human body has layers of muscle – muscle over muscle. Deep tissue massage it is an advanced technique that focuses on treating deep layers of connective tissue and tissue.

Purpose of Deep Tissue Massage

Deep tissue massage focuses on redirecting the deeper layers of connective tissue and muscle tissue. It aims to relieve chronic patterns of tension in the body by gently tapping and deep finger pressing in tight areas, following or crossing muscle fibers, muscles and fascia. It is especially useful in tight and contracted areas such as stiff necks, low back pain, and painful shoulders.

Deep tissue massage is more than just “hard massage.” In contrast to the only relaxing muscles, the straight extension of the fascia, muscles and tendons offers many benefits such as increased joint movement, faster recovery from injury, better posture, and sense of well-being.

Deep tissue massage is often used for treatment:

  • Endless pain
  • Limited Walk
  • Injury Recovery (e.g. whiplash, falls, and sports injuries)
  • Recurrent Injury (carpal tunnel syndrome)
  • Post Problems
  • Osteoarthritis pain
  • Muscle Strength or Spasm.

Principles of Deep Tissue Massage

Deep tissue has been found to improve muscle function and range of motion, breaking red tissue and adhesions, and reducing pain. It is thought that when the muscles are tight, they block oxygen and nutrients, leading to inflammation that builds up muscle tissue. Deep muscle massage can help loosen muscle tissue, release muscle toxins and circulate blood and oxygen properly. Because so many toxins are released, it is recommended to drink plenty of water after a deep muscle session to help eliminate these toxins from the body.

Deep Tissue Massage Terms:

  1. Reduce pain.
  2. Improve posture.
  3. Increase flexibility and a relaxed attitude.
  4. Improve movement fluidity.
  5. Restore the metabolic state of tissues.

Deep Tissue Massage Treatment

Deep tissue massage uses many of the same movements and techniques as the more ancient massage. The difference is that stress is usually more intense, and it focuses on areas of stress and pain. The lashes are the same, but the movement is slower and deeper. Occasionally during massage, many people find that there is often a feeling of discomfort and pain. It is important to tell the therapist when he or she arrives at the tender place and if any discomfort you feel is outside your comfort zone. Due to the focus of the session, treatment may at times be intense.

Sometimes there is a slight stiffness or tenderness after deep muscle massage, but it should decrease during the day or so. A massage therapist may recommend applying ice to the area after deep tissue massage.
