Deep tissue massage is a therapy that focuses on realigning connective tissues and muscles. It specifically concentrates on the fascia and deep layers of muscle in the body. When injury or chronic muscle tension is present, adhesions are developed in the ligaments, tendons, and muscle tissues. These adhesions can limit movement, cause pain, and inhibit circulation. And that is how deep tissue massage works on the body to break down the adhesions and refurbish movement.
At his Chiropractic clinic in the Kenmore Village Shopping Centre in Brisbane West, deep tissue massage is one of Peter McIntyre’s specialties.
Benefits of Deep Tissue Massage
Makes Movement Easier:
When scar tissues develop from a visible cut or injury, they sometimes occur deeper inside the body. For instance, when you damage your tendons, ligaments, or muscles. It is this kind of scarring or injury that deep tissue massage can help resolve, thereby making it easier to move, and enhancing greater range of motion.
According to a recent study, it was found that this type of massage helps to alleviate pain linked with plantar fasciitis. In addition to this, it can be used for other conditions such as lower back pain, tennis elbow, fibromyalgia, thereby providing some much-needed relief.
Lowers Blood Pressure And Heart Rate:
In a study published in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine, about 263 participants who were involved reported strain or muscle spasm. Each participant’s heart rate and blood pressure was assessed prior to a 50 to 60 minute deep tissue massage, and also after that. The result was lower diastolic and systolic pressure, as well as heart rates around 11 beats less per minute.
Offers Stress Relief:
If you feel badly stressed due to demands at home or work, deep tissue massage can help ease your stress in a non-invasive, non-medical way. It is extremely important to keep this in mind, as untreated stress can do major damage to physical and mental health.
Peter offers quality specialist deep tissue massage therapy to ease your mind and body, as needed.
