What is the benefit of Deep tissue massage?
The primary goal of deep tissue massage is to reduce pain and discomfort, while improving the body’s ability to heal itself. Deep tissue massages are not only relaxing — they also help “lengthen and release muscles” that frequently feel tense and get stuck in uncomfortable holding patterns.
Most deep tissue massages normally focus on major muscle group such as the neck or lower back along with joints and tendons that are susceptible to straining or injuries. Certain areas of the body that tend to tense up in times of stress, including the shoulders, neck and hips, can often benefit the most from this type of deep manipulation.
A Deep tissue or sports massage helps with physical treatment to treat pain and disability, improve muscle recovery and joint mobilization and prevent injuries.
