Deep Tissue Massage Benefits include:
A deep tissue massage reduces pain because it loosens up muscles that have been bunched together for quite some time. When muscles stay tight without any relief, it can lead to discomfort, spasms or injury. Massage has been proven to help with common athletic problems such as tennis elbow or plantar fasciitis, and it is particularly helpful for those who have trouble with their calf muscles. It can break up scar tissue within the muscle after injuries or surgeries, which can promote healing and decrease chances of relapse.
During a deep tissue massage, the therapist pays attention to working on and through knotted muscles and tissues, which increases blood flow and decreases stress. In fact, according to the Journal of Complementary and Alternative Medicine, blood pressure falls after just one massage. Because all forms of massage have been shown to reduce stress and boost the level of serotonin in your body, a deep tissue massage can promote a healthier lifestyle and help with:
- Digestive disorders
- Insomnia related to stress
- Myofascial pain syndrome
- Paresthesias and nerve pain
- Soft tissue strains or injuries
- Sports injuries
- Temporomandibular joint pain
After a Deep Tissue Massage
It is important to drink lots of water after a deep tissue massage to help flush the built up lactic acid out of your tissues. It’s recommended you drink several glasses of water following a massage or you may feel a little sore the next day. You may still experience soreness if you’ve been stressed or particularly tight for a while regardless of how much water you drink. If you do happen to feel sore, it will likely go away within a day.

This type of massage offers the much-needed stimulation that improves a wide variety of health conditions. Just like any other type of massage, the deep tissue massage utilizes several techniques which help sore muscles achieve quick repair while eliminating pain. However, this kind of massage is somehow intense. More pressure is usually applied to some regions of your body with the aim of reaching the deepest fascia layers. The fascia layers refer to the deepest tissues that surround your muscles. Deep tissue massage is mostly used to relieve chronic pain as well as contracted regions such as upper and low back pain, stiff neck, sore shoulders, and leg muscle tightness.
How Does Deep Tissue Massage Work?
Deep tissue massage is typically used to disintegrate the scar tissue and also disintegrate muscle adhesions which may disrupt circulation resulting in pain, inflammation, and minimal range of movement. Light pressure is usually applied at the start of the massage to cuddle and warm up and prepare the muscles.
The most prevalent techniques used in deep tissue massage are:
- Friction: This method applies pressure across the grain of your muscle to release the bands of painful and rigid tissue and realign the crucial tissue fibers.
- Stripping: Stripping involves applying deep and intense pressure along the length of your muscle fibers using thumbs, elbow, knuckles, and the forearm.
When is a Deep Massage Recommended?
- Strain, spasms, and muscle tension
- Chronic pain
- Muscle injuries and most commonly the sports or whiplash injuries
- Tennis elbow or the carpal tunnel
