Deep Tissue Massage

Deep Tissue Massage Therapy

Deep tissue massage focuses on realigning deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue. It is a highly effective technique used to treat chronic pain, muscle tension, and injuries. The origins of deep tissue massage are traced back to ancient civilizations such as China and Egypt, where it was used to treat a variety of ailments. However, a few Canadian physicians made it mainstream in the late 1800’s. The first deep tissue clinic opened in 1949 in Canada.

One of the main benefits of deep tissue massage is it can help to reduce chronic pain. This is because the massage therapist uses slow, deep strokes to target the deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue. This technique helps to break up scar tissue and adhesions, which can cause pain and inflammation. Improved circulation, which can help to reduce inflammation and promote healing are also benefits of this message technique

Another benefit is that it can help to reduce stress and anxiety. This is because the massage therapist uses slow, deep strokes to help relax the muscles and promote a sense of calm. It can also help to improve flexibility and range of motion, which can help to prevent injuries and improve athletic performance.

The techniques used in deep tissue massage can vary depending on the individual needs of the client. Some common techniques include kneading, friction, and stretching. The massage therapist may use their hands, elbows, and forearms to apply pressure to the deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue. This can cause short term discomfort while the massage therapists works, however the discomfort gives way to relief as the inflamed soft tissue begins to relax as the area is worked. Stretching and other functional movements may also be incorporated in this type of massage. This massage technique is often combined with hot stone therapy for maximum relief.
