Deep tissue massage employs techniques to work below superficial
connective tissue with the intent of breaking up old structural patterns
and allowing the free flow of oxygen and nutrients to the blood. Deep
tissue massage also helps to free trapped nerves, oxygenate area with
poor circulation and allows the spine and joints to relax alignment.
Deep tissue massage can help to relieve:
- Chronic pain
- Limited mobility
- Recovery from injuries (e.g. whiplash, falls, sports injury)
- Repetitive strain injury, such as carpal tunnel syndrome
- Postural problems
- Ostearthritis pain
- Muscle tension or spasm
The first technique used by massage therapists practicing deep tissue
massage is using deeper pressure and longer strokes. Using deeper
pressure allows the massage therapist to reach deeper layers of muscle
and connective tissue. Itâ??s important that the therapist use a gradual
process of pressure so healing can occur without excessive pain. The
long, slow strokes are usually performed with the massage therapists
thumbs, fingers or elbows. This helps loosen the tension and toxicity
located beneath the surface.
Utilizing Massage Therapy Tools
There are various tools that can be utilized during a deep tissue
massage to enhance the pressure and promote the release of chronic pain
or tension. Deep tissue massage therapy tools are typically found in
various types of materials such as wood, rubber or plastic. These tools
are knob-like and are used for more intense pressure in focused areas.
For instance, if there has been an injury that resulted in severe
lower back pain, a deep tissue massage therapy tool may be used to reach
deeper layers. This action will allow the release of any scar tissue
that has formed or chronic deep muscle tension.
It is important to keep in mind that deep tissue massage techniques
work best when they are performed consistently over time.
tissue massage techniques utilize deeper pressure and reach deeper
layers of muscle tissue, there is often a level of soreness that will
occur. Any soreness that occurs will be noticed for a day or two after
the deep tissue massage, but then a general sense of healing and
well-being will be apparent.
Communication with the massage therapist is vital in order to avoid
excessive pain during a deep tissue massage. A good massage therapist
will adjust the level of pressure during a deep tissue massage to
accommodate the healing of the client. Although various techniques may
be used during a deep tissue massage, the result should be the healing
of injury, the lessening of chronic pain and the maintenance of strong
and vital muscles.
