DEEP TISSUE/SPORT MASSAGE
What is it ?
Deep tissue/sport massage is a type of massage therapy that focuses on realigning deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue. It is especially helpful for chronically tense and contracted areas such as stiff necks, low back tightness, and sore shoulders. Through slower strokes and more direct deep pressure, this type of massage is used to release chronic muscle tension and target injuries that are specific to sports.It helps to break up and eliminate scar tissue and usually focuses on more specific areas and may cause some soreness during or right after the massage. Deep tissue massage is a category of massage therapy, used to treat particular muscular-skeletal disorders and complaints and employs a dedicated set of techniques and strokes to achieve a measure of relief. It should not be confused with “deep pressure” massage, which is one that is performed with sustained strong, occasionally intense pressure throughout an entire full-body session, and that is not performed to address a specific complaint.
INCREASED BLOOD FLOW
Because massage therapists are applying so much direct pressure on the muscles, this increases the blood circulation throughout your body. As a result, increased blood flow boosts the oxygen supply to all of the tissues in your body. With more oxygen circulating in the blood, toxins such as lactic acid are removed from your muscles at a higher rate. A professional athlete can especially benefit from this type of massage since the speedy removal of toxins can help speed up the healing process for distressed muscles. In addition, a deep tissue/sport massage can increase the mobility of certain muscles and loosen up tight muscles.
Another positive benefit is stress relief. The forceful and firm pressure forces the body to relax and ultimately relieve tension. Not only help to rid the muscles of toxins thanks to the increased blood flow, but flushing out toxins also helps to put the body and the mind in a more relaxed state. This can more easily lead to physical relaxation of stiff muscles. An experienced massage therapist will concentrate on massaging various trigger points on the body that are known to hold the most stress. By working out the muscles in these areas, your body can relax much more easily and much more simply. If you are someone who has a busy work life, who travels a lot, or who just has a lot of stress in your life, a monthly or even bi-monthly deep tissue/sport massage can do wonders for your long-term relaxation and mood.
REDUSE CHRONIC PAIN
If you are someone who suffers from chronic discomfort such as arthritis, muscle inflammation, or even a ''bad'' back, a deep tissue/sport massage can help alleviate some of the pain. For some people, deep tissue massages have proven to be more effective and useful than daily prescriptions or other medications. Once again, because the deep tissue massage is increasing your blood flow, it is also reducing inflammation in the affected area. The firm pressure eases the pain and alleviates tension, loosening tightness and buildups of painful lactic acid that accumulates with repeated stress of muscles. When done regularly, a deep tissue massage is similar to physical therapy and can be a great alternative for someone who is not interested in prescription drug use. The University of Maryland Medical Center reports that deep tissue/sport massage is more effective and affordable for relieving chronic pain than conventional medical remedies. Because of the blood flow through the body, it helps reduce the inflammation that causes pain. It can also help alleviate muscle tension that is often a side effect of chronic pain by loosening the tight tissue clusters.
LOWERS BLOOD PRESSURE
A side effect of relieving stress and tension involves a reduction in your blood pressure. As the deep tissue massage reduces muscle tightness, it can have a positive effect on blood pressure, especially if you are prone to high blood pressure or if high amounts of stress in your life are known to negatively trigger your high blood pressure. Because stress relief has been proven to promote more serotonin in your body a hormone that is responsible for making you feel happy and content a deep tissue/sport massage can be an ideal and relaxing way to lower your blood pressure.
BREAKS UP SCAR TISSUE
Over time this type of massage therapy can help break up and eventually erase scar tissue in the body. It does this by improving lymphatic circulation and drainage to improve flexibility and range of motion in the affected area. Scar tissue is often associated with ongoing pain and stiffness, so deep tissue/sport massage can improve these symptoms. Massage therapy is often recommended for people who are recovering from surgery.
REHABILITATES INJURED MUSCLES
Deep tissue/sport massage it can be an effective treatment for injured muscles. It facilitates the movement of toxins from the muscles and helps stretch tight or twisted muscle mass and helps to promote healing. Because massage also helps relax muscles, it can reduce the pain caused by injuries too. Deep tissue/sport massage is frequently used to rehabilitate sports injuries.
