Benefits of Deep Tissue Massage

A deep-tissue massage aims to release fascial restrictions. As people age, collagen fibers
become more compact and more hydrogen bonds form between them. This thickens the tissue,
causing postural imbalances, increased structural tension, and an increased risk of injury.
Additionally, adjacent muscles may become stuck together. Deep-tissue massage can help to
release these restrictions and reduce stress. Here are some benefits of deep-tissue massage.

First, it can be dangerous for some clients. Clients with a history or recent chemotherapy, blood
clots, or radiation exposure should not have deep-tissue massaging. It is also best avoided on
clients with open wounds, tumors, or rashes. Deep-tissue massage may not be right for you. Ask
your doctor for a referral. It is worth it to ensure that your massage therapist knows the type of
massage you want before scheduling your first session.


One of the many benefits to deep-tissue massages is their effectiveness. Massage therapists go
deeper into the muscles layers to apply more pressure. Although the technique is not painful it
may be more intense than a Swedish or Swedish massage. It is an excellent choice for people
with chronic pain, or who are involved in high-intensity activities. Depending on your needs, your
deep-tissue massage may cause soreness for two to three days. Your Viva Day Spa therapist
may recommend heat or ice therapy to reduce swelling and prevent any further discomfort.

Lastly, a deep-tissue massage can help relieve chronic pain. Increased blood flow speeds
healing and reduces inflammation. Massages have been found to lower blood pressure and
improve flexibility. A deep-tissue massaging can be beneficial for people suffering from plantar
faciitis. When the pain is gone, they can lead a more active lifestyle. Deep-tissue massage is
more than just a physical benefit.

Regular massage sessions are the best way to reap the benefits of deep-tissue massaging.

However, one-off sessions can be beneficial if you have persistent pain or a knotty neck. Deep-
tissue massages can also cause tenderness in the areas being worked on. Before scheduling an

appointment, it is important to discuss any active pain with your massage professional. Many
clients report feeling tired after a deep tissue massage. We recommend booking your sessions
at home for the best relaxation.

Deep-tissue massage is similar in style to Swedish massage but uses a firmer, slower pressure
to reach deeper layers of muscles, connective tissue, and connective tissues. The goal is to
relieve tension that has been built up over time. The therapist will apply slow, continuous strokes
and finger pressure on tense muscles to release the knots. This type of massage is especially
helpful for people who have constant aches and pains, such as those caused by chronic strain
and injury.

Deep tissue massage is a great choice for chronic pain sufferers. While Swedish massage is the
most effective type of massage, deep tissue massage is also an option. Deep tissue massage is
especially useful for runners, athletes, and those with chronic muscle injuries. This massage is
also great for those who want a more structural one. It has a relaxing effect on the body, and is a
good option for clients with moderate pain tolerance. Deep tissue massage offers many benefits,
including improved health and stress reduction.
A deep-tissue massaging can not only reduce pain but also improve quality of living for people

with arthritis. It can improve range of motion, grip, pain, and mobility. A massage will not cure
arthritis but may be used in conjunction to treatment by a doctor. Deep-tissue massage may be
beneficial to athletes who are exposed to physical strain. Deep-tissue massage can also be
used to reduce muscle tension and pain from physical activity.

Swedish massage uses light pressure to moderate pressure. This is the best choice for
relaxation. The pressure used in this massage is different than in Swedish massage, so it is
important to find a professional with experience in deep-tissue massage before you book your
appointment. Swedish massages tend to be gentler and are ideal for people who want to relax
after a long work day. Deep-tissue massaging is often too intense for those who are looking for a
relaxing massage.
