Massage involves working the soft tissue of the body, to ease day-to-day stresses and muscular tension, and promote relaxation. It helps to increase delivery of blood and oxygen to the treated areas and can also be used in support of other therapies to assist in the rehabilitation of muscular injuries.
There are many different types of massage. Some of these – such as Indian head massage and remedial/sports massage - concentrate on specific areas of the body, or problem areas. Others might use different massage ‘tools’ to enhance the treatment, for example, heated stones. With all massage treatments, the therapist will adapt the pressure and techniques used to suit the client’s individual needs and preferences.
Deep tissue massage uses slow, firm strokes and pressure to ease and release tension deep in your muscles.
Deep tissue massage does what it says 'on the tin' - it is a massage technique that works on the deeper layers of muscle tissue.
Similar to Swedish massage, deep tissue massage uses slower and firmer strokes and pressure than other treatments - deep finger pressure that concentrates on particular areas, and follows or goes across the fibres of muscles and tendons.
Deep tissue massage is a blanket term that describes a number of different therapies, and is often used medically by physiotherapists, chiropractors and so on.
Deep tissue massage features in most forms of massage to some degree.
Massages are one of man's oldest healing methods and can assist in recovery from a wide variety of different illnesses.
Benefits of massage
Massage is used by people for a variety of reasons. Some use it to simply relax and unwind, while others have regular massage to help them manage or cope with specific physical, mental or emotional problems. Many aspiring and professional athletes have massage before and after training and competing, in order to stay in optimum condition and aid recovery.
There is a growing body of evidence to suggest that massage can be effective in helping to treat certain chronic conditions, such as fibromyalgia and low back pain.
