3 Facts About Deep Tissue Massage - Benefits Compared to Swedish Massage

If you have been seeking massage therapy for aches and pains, you may want to consider getting deep tissue massage. Though the Swedish-style massage can be great for minor aches and pain, and is also great for relaxation, there are times when it just isn't enough. Deep tissue massage is more about therapy and healing than relaxation, and there is a reason why it works better than the Swedish type. You should consider that the problems you are having in association with chronic pain need a more advanced approach.

You may not hear much about deep tissue massage, but it is something that is used quite often to help athletes and others who have very physical jobs. Most injuries are not just surface injuries, and it is important to get to the root of the problem for real relief. Athletes are not the only ones who can benefit however, as there are many injuries that go deeper than the surface. If you have an office job where you must sit in front of a computer all day, or if you do a lot of repetitive motions for any reason, you are also at risk for this type of problem.

3 Things You Need to Know

1. How it Works

Deep tissue massage reaches core muscles that are often not stimulated through surface massage. These muscles may be in a state of agitation. These core muscles are important for posture, and when they are not loose and working well, you are going to have all sorts of problems. If you have a backache that won't go away, and regular massage doesn't seem to do much to help you, it means that the core muscles are in need of manipulation, and that is where deep tissue massage can help. You may find relief for many types of chronic pain through this type of massage, and once you find you are feeling better, you may kick yourself for not having tried it sooner.

2. What Results Should You Expect?

A therapist using deep tissue massage will have to apply more pressure to reach the muscle well below the surface. This means there is going to be more pain when you have treatment. This pain is temporary, and is letting you know that the proper tissues are being targeted. When muscles are bunched, the act of kneading and manipulating them will hurt. This pain is temporary, and depending on the state of your health, you should see results rather quickly. It is important that you keep up with your treatment if you want to see total and complete results.

3. Where Can You Go?

You may have to look hard to find a good deep tissue massage therapist. You generally won't find someone like this in a spa that specializes in Swedish massage, but it is not unheard of either. If you can't seem to find anyone, talk to your medical doctor. They may know of somewhere you can go. Though some doctors are iffy on recommending alternative therapies, many of them respect what deep tissue massage can do for the health and well-being of their patients.

Looking At The Benefits Of Stress Relief Through Massage

The modern lifestyle for most average people today is hurried and stressful. Most families are in a routine of stressful events that becomes a way of life. However, too much pressure for too long can cause multiple health problems. Headaches, heart attacks, stroke, and even some immune related diseases are caused and made worse by stress.

Think about how great it feels to have the muscles in your back massaged. This is true even when you have no injury to muscles. However, for those times you do have sore aching muscles from overdoing it, you are experiencing a form of stress. When your body is fighting inflammation and pain, you might be surprised at the level of pressure it is under while doing so.

Many diseases that are caused primarily from you being under too much strain for too long can be completely avoided by learning how to handle it. Consider the number of people in hospitals suffering from heart attacks and stroke. Many of these same sufferers might have thwarted these attacks by simply taking time to relax.

Learning to relax can be hard, especially when you may be the one working to support your family or you are the one caring for someone sick,. Several situations can cause a great deal of pressure on one person. While many people are tough and have a great will to keep going on no matter what, they end up succumbing to pressures. Visiting a masseuse on a regular basis can allow you the time you need to learn how to truly relax.

Regular visits for muscle massaging can help to strengthen your immunity. This is a great reason many hospitals and clinics are incorporating this natural technique in their recovery routines. Research has shown how much faster people heal when massaging is a part of their healing process.

Massaging muscles can allow them to better expel metabolic waste. This is certainly a plus when you consider the number of external toxins you might be exposed to every day. Massaging also helps to promote the dispersion of vital nutrients in soft tissue. This is especially helpful in the cases of injured muscle tissue that requires a higher level of nutrients for healing.

Learn more about how you can relax and reap the benefits of massage for stress by visiting a professional masseuse. Making sure you take out time for yourself is important and necessary for you to maintain excellent health.
