Deep tissue massage is clinically designed for treating serious muscle tensions and severe pains and aches by breaking down adhesions with the use of heavy and deep pressure. A lot of common everyday issues involve chronic pain on the back, neck, shoulders and muscle tightness on the legs. As the movement is slower and deeper with formed pressure, this helps to focus on affected sub-layers of muscles and connective surround tissues affected by pain or injury to break down and restore the bodily functions in deeper areas.
Generally, adhesion cause circulation to be blocked and therefore can limit the range of movement, generates stagnation and results in inflammation. When deep tissue is applied to the areas of treatment, a lot of the adhesion is to be broken down slowly which can result some pain during the process. It is best to inform the massage therapist if the pressure is over the maximum effort and to breathe slowly and deeply as certain tense areas may require more pressure.
If you are a customer looking for more firm pressure, wanting to relieve muscle tension in deeper areas and able to tolerate “good pain” but may feel painful at first, then deep tissue massage may be suitable for you. Some health problems such as contracted stiff areas, or extreme tightness in the neck, upper back, lower back or the legs, this can definitely be treated with this deep tissue.
