The Benefits of Deep Tissue Massage

A deep tissue massage (DTM) is a technique that helps treat musculoskeletal disorders.  Slow and deep kneading will apply sustained pressure.  It also simultaneously attacks the inner layers of your muscle and connective tissue.  A deep massage helps to reduce tissue scars and muscle spasms.

DTM can be helpful for small or large muscle injuries or to cure chronic problems.  The deep tissue massage aims at deep muscles, tendons and protective and connective tissue called fascia.  It helps to break down the adhesions and restore the proper body functions.

Because of the firm and slow movements, a deep massage forces the body to relax and ultimately reduce stress.  It helps release the muscles, which not only improves blood circulation, but also completely relaxes the body and mind.  Even a five-minute foot treatment can act on the body’s various trigger points, relieving stress.  According to a report from the Health Sciences Center, there is a high correlation between a deep tissue massage and a reduction in blood pressure and heart rate.

The benefits of deep tissue massage are often used after injury to break up newly formed scar tissue, which can hinder recovery and produce stiffness.  It has been shown that relieving inflammation and muscle spasms by stimulating blood circulation, relaxing muscles for more oxygen, and reducing the automatic response to nervous system stress.  After an injury, and especially at a very stressful time, inflammation can prevent adequate blood flow from reaching damaged tissue, cutting off vital nutrients and oxygen.

DTM is a special method or procedure in the massage that focuses on the deepest layers of muscle tissue, tendons and fascia.  Deep tissue may also refer to the gentle and sustained pressure that acts on the myofascial layer (band or layer of connective tissue, mainly collagen, under the skin that clings, stabilizes, locks in and separates the muscles and other internal organs).  The science behind deep tissue massage, sometimes referred to as percussion therapy, is simple and based on the gate control theory.

Because in the end, you might already decide that you deserve a deep tissue massage for the foot to relax.  Deep tissue is a specialized technique that focuses primarily on the thicker layer of muscle tissue, tendons and fascia (the connecting layer between joints, bones and muscles).  Unlike other massages that use less pressure, deep tissue massage uses deep finger pressure with both fixed and slow movements.

DTM is a manipulation of deep tissue layers in the human body.  The difference to other techniques such as Swedish and acupressure is that the pressure exerted in the Deep Tissue is much deeper, yet slow and firm.

The Swedish massage is a gentler form, where the tension is much less than with the deep tissue massage.  Both types include the use of the palms and fingers to knead and manipulate the tissue, but the elbows and forearms can also be used to exert increased pressure during a deep tissue massage.  The Swedish massage is a gentler form of massage, where the tension is much less than with the deep tissue massage.

Sometimes, with this technique, the therapist must apply a firmer pressure to reach and resolve these key areas.  That is why this special technique is often recommended for people who feel comfortable with a slightly more intense touch.  However, deep tissue massage may also refer to a gentle but sustained pressure acting on the myofascial layer.

A study from the University of Maryland found that deep tissue massage to treat chronic pain is even more effective than some other medical treatments.   Licensed therapists can also work to relieve tense tissue buildup caused by exercise, further relieving strained muscles.  In addition to the physical benefits, DTM can also have psychic benefits.

Deep tissue can be improved through the use of essential oils.  They need a basic understanding of the body’s massage techniques, soft tissues and connective tissue.  Work at the point that causes the pain, not at the point where the pain manifests.

Deep Tissue help to regulate the pores in the fiber tissue, which increases the permeability.  Stretching the tissue during a session helps the muscle fibers build up tension and pressure.  The massage helps to stretch the muscles longitudinally and transversely along the natural circulation and muscle tissue.

Exercising and exercising regularly can overstrain muscles and other soft tissues.  A sports massage therapist aims to prevent or alleviate injuries, improve muscle performance, and correct muscle imbalances.  There is evidence that a sports massage can aid recovery from repetitive muscle injuries.  There is also evidence that sports massages can improve muscle performance, but they are less conclusive.

After a deep tissue, stretching is my most important activity. Stretching can help minimize inflammation in areas that have been worked aggressively, without resorting to ice, which could stimulate contraction, or Advil, which can be quite hard on your stomach.
