Deep tissue massages are exactly as they sound and they focus on going deep into the muscle and tendons to alleviate chronic muscle pains and tension.
When receiving a deep tissue massage, you should expect more pressure than the average massage as the deepest tissues of the muscles must be reached for health and wellness. This stimulation of the lowest muscle tissues relieves deep pain and stiffness, allowing your muscles to relax and be softened by the time your session has finished.
Deep tissue massages are extremely good for the body and studies have shown that they have the ability to lower blood pressure. They also release natural endorphins in the brain or "feel good" chemicals such as serotonin and oxytocin that leave you feeling very refreshed after your session.
Deep tissue massages also decrease stress horomones in the body and lower the heart rate it one of the best massages for rehabilitation, health and wellness. The side effects of deep tissue massages are increased mood and relaxation.
For rehabilitation treatment, you can also specify to your massage therapist where you have scar tissue and use deep tissue massaging to begin to eliminate the scar tissue in your body.
After your deep tissue massage, it is highly recommended to consume as much water as you can while still feeling comfortable, and not to do any rigorous work.
Allow your body to relax and work through natural processes to further heal itself to receive the full benefits of a deep tissue massage.
