March 14, 2019
Whether you use it alone or in conjunction with other types of treatments, deep tissue massage Delray Beach therapy can effectively treat physical and psychological stress. It aims to reduce discomfort and pain as it improves the body’s ability to self-heal.
What is Deep Tissue Massage?
This is a type of massage therapy that involves the application of firm finger pressure with slow strokes that aim to reach the deep layers of muscle as well as the connective tissue that surrounds them. It offers a variety of therapeutic effects that may be used to address different conditions.
Chronic Back Pain Treatment
Studies prove that deep tissue massage therapy alone has just as much of a positive effect in terms of pain reduction among individuals who are suffering from chronic back pain compared to light massage and painkillers used together.
A good deep tissue massage can reduce your body’s production of cortisol (stress hormone) and boost its production of oxytocin (a hormone that soothes and relaxes the body). It’s effective natural stress and anxiety reliever.
Reduces Symptoms of Arthritis
When used daily for natural relief, a deep tissue massage can relieve chronic joint pain, stiffness, limited range of motion in the joints, and other common symptoms of several types of arthritis. This can be performed by the patient themselves or by a skilled professional.
Breaks Up Scar Tissue
If you’ve been physically injured, consider using a deep tissue massage to break up the scar tissue that may lead to stiffness and a longer recovery period. Research shows that it has the ability to significantly reduce inflammation as well as muscle spasms. In case you’re not aware, inflammation can impede the flow of blood to the damaged tissue, cutting off the supply of oxygen and vital nutrients which ultimately leads to increased pain and swelling.
