Deep Tissue Massage Rehabilitation

Massage therapy is a widely-understood method for helping people heal from an injury. It has many benefits, including reducing physical and mental stress, increasing blood flow, and helping prevent injury. Deep tissue massage is a specific kind of massage that shines at assisting in rehabilitation efforts.

What is Deep Tissue Massage Rehabilitation?

Deep tissue massage rehabilitation is the process of using therapeutic massage to help your body heal from an injury. It can be used on old injuries as well as more recent ones, which means that it can be extremely helpful for people with chronic pain stemming from previous damage. It is performed by a professional massage therapist who knows how to target their efforts.

Unlike traditional massage, deep tissue massage is rarely relaxing at the time. It is a therapeutic massage which is designed to help in the long-term, rather than being immediately enjoyable. In order to reach the deep tissue, the massage therapist needs to use quite a bit of pressure, which can be uncomfortable. However, the effects are often quite remarkable in the days following the process.

Deep tissue massage does not have to be painful. It is true that certain types of painful pressure can be helpful, but if you find the massage unbearably uncomfortable, our massage therapist can make changes to their process. Massage therapy at our clinic is always tailored to the patient.

What Deep Tissue Massage Does

The harder pressure and more intense movements of deep tissue massage are intended to break up old adhesions in the muscles, as well as other scar tissue. This scar tissue is often responsible for chronic pain, even though it is normal after an injury. However, once the injury has healed, the scar tissue remains, which can cause impaired function in the joint or area of the body.

Deep tissue massage also improves blood flow throughout the body, and many people find that it has a profound effect on their stress levels. For some people, this is because relief from pain decreases stress levels. For other people, the effect may be more related to the release of relaxing chemicals and hormones.
