The Deep Tissue Massage is a slow yet firm massage technique that focuses on the deeper layers of muscles, tendons and tissues like the fascia and other supportive tissues. This technique can involve the use of firm pressure to get to these deeper areas or involve gentle yet sustained pressure targeting the myofascial layer. This massage is ideally recommended for chronic muscular pain, injury rehabilitation and general stress and muscle tension release.
The deep tissue massage helps stimulate the blood flow and relieves muscle tension. It also lowers psychological stress and releases hormones like serotonin and oxytocin which are known to be the mood lifters. These help in relaxing the body with their soothing effects. This massage usually focuses on the major muscle groups like the neck or lower back along with joints and tendons that are often vulnerable to strain or injuries. With the focus on the body parts that tend to tense up in times of stress like your shoulders, neck and hips the deep manipulation of muscles is beneficial in restoring the tensed up muscles.
