What is a deep tissue massage?

Deep tissue massage which is also called remedial massage, is a type of massage therapy that focuses on the deep layers of the muscles. It is very effective in relieving chronic pain by easing out tense muscles and loosening or untangling knots.

Muscle Tension and Pain

A chiropractor will use focused and intense pressure to penetrate the connective tissues when performing deep tissue massage. This penetrates to the deeper layers of the muscle. The chiropractor will use both their hands and fingertips when working over the tense muscles. They start the massage gently at first to avoid any muscle spasms and then continue through the session to gradually increase the effort by using a combination of friction and direct pressure.

Deep tissue massage can give long term benefits. Any pain and tension in the muscles a patient has will be relieved. It is not unusual for a patient to feel a bit sore for the first couple of hours after the treatment.

Deep tissue massage can be of great help for people who suffer from injured muscles or chronic muscle tension but you do not need to have a specific problem to benefit from this massage therapy. Deep tissue massage is effective in improving circulation. With improved circulation, your cells will be able to absorb nutrients, gather oxygen, and wash out toxins. This will leave your body feeling refreshed and your mind relaxed. Deep tissue massage does not only promote relaxation, but it also reduces stress and increases your range of motion and flexibility.
