Do you feel tense and stressed, with muscle soreness and pain? Are you someone who does not get regular massages? You might want to rethink that. Massage therapy is known to provide relaxation and stress relief, and has been used for a wide variety of ailments for thousands of years. In fact, massage is used not just to alleviate muscle pain, but also to treat arthritis, bursitis, fatigue, high blood pressure, diabetes, depression, and much more. There are many different types of massage, and if you are experiencing muscle soreness, you may want to look into deep tissue massage.
What is a deep tissue massage? It’s more than just a Swedish massage with more intensity. Deep tissue targets deep layers of muscles and connective tissue, using firm pressure and slow strokes. It helps to break down muscle adhesions, which are the painful knots you feel when your muscles are tight. These knots cause pain and inflammation, and they can also inhibit circulation. Deep tissue muscle massage uses techniques like stripping, which is deep pressure along the muscle fibers, and friction, which puts pressure across the muscles to break up adhesions. Sometimes the massage therapist will only use hands in this therapy, and sometimes tools like a deep tissue muscle massage gun will be used to enhance the massage.
So, how do you know if you need a deep tissue massage? Anyone suffering from muscle pain can benefit from a massage. However, there is more to it than that. If you want to have more efficient workouts, feel more relaxed, and have better sleep, massage can help you achieve these goals. In fact, deep tissue massage can improve your overall health, improving blood flow and lung function and decreasing blood pressure.
