1. Relaxes Muscles
Muscle tensions that are often caused by fatigue due to repetitive movements, lack of muscle use, improper warm up or cool down sessions after exercises are all examples. Tensions in the muscle lead to uneasiness and muscular pain, which decreases our daily functionality in our daily life.
But the good news is, a Deep Tissue Massage helps in relaxing the tensed body muscles.
2. Improves Circulation
The blood circulation is elevated whenever the activities and sensory system in our body increases. A deep tissue massage involves firm pressure, touch sensation on the skin, stroking and micro stretching of muscles, this helps in increasing the activities and sensation system in our body.
Thus, it improves the local blood circulation that helps in removing the toxins and fasten the healing process in our body.
3. Releases Trigger Points
Trigger points also known as muscle knots is a small patch of tight muscle fibres that are sensitive and cause aching and stiffness. It is one of the common causes of lower back and neck pain.
With the help of firm pressure from a deep tissue massage, it helps in breaking down or soften the hard tight muscle fibres.
4. Reduce Muscle Tightness
The muscle tightness occurs when the elasticity of muscle fibres reduces. Muscle overuse, poor posture, and injury cause the tightness to occur.
A deep Tissue Massage aims at treating the deeper layers of muscles which helps in increasing the elasticity of the fibres and hence manages the muscle tightness.
5. Lowers Blood Pressure
Unlike in the past, you don’t have to be old to suffer from High Blood Pressure. Today, in the era of our fast changing world, high blood pressure is seen even in young adults and its increasing. These are indeed due to work stress, mental trauma, tension, and anxiety.
A Deep Tissue massage has a soothing effect that boosts the production of Serotonin hormones which promotes that happiness and good feeling we’ve all experienced. With that in mind, it helps in relieving stress, tension, and anxiety. In the end, it relaxes our mind and lowers the Blood Pressure.
6. Scar Tissue Management
Once in a while in our lifetime, we meet an accident, we fall, we get injured and a scar forms on our body. No worries if the scar isn’t damaging your cosmetics appearance, but it can be annoying if it is bothersome.
Scar tissue is a thickened version of skin which is hard and has different pigmentation than your normal skin.
With the help of a deep tissue massage, the firm pressure applied on the affected area softens the hard scar tissue. As it also increases the lymphatic drainage and circulation in the applied area, it helps in distributing and equalising the pigmentations as well. Thus, helps in managing Scar Tissue.
7. Relieves Pain
Deep Tissue Massage acts in two ways to relieve pain, one that treats the underlying cause and the other by touch therapy.
Touch Therapy is believed to be one of the most relaxing activities in human. It helps in boosting the production of serotonin hormones and activating the natural painkillers in our body that helps in reducing the pain.
8. Increase joint mobility
Some of the causes that restrict the joint mobility are pain, muscle tightness, and trigger points.
As the deep tissue massage is applied over the affected area, it reduces pain along with other joint mobility restricting factors. Not only that, as it increases the circulations in our body, it helps in lubricating the joint which helps to increase the joint mobility.
