The combination of stresses and strains imposed on our bodies by events at work and sometimes even at home can take a heavy toll. Whether we’re texting friends and family or involved in long laborious work meetings, our bodies and minds are rarely able to rest during the day. Deep tissue massage could offer a lasting resolution to the common issue of day-to-day stress. Let’s take a look at some of the core benefits of a massage program based on deep tissue massage techniques:
- Reduced Muscle Tension
During particularly stressful periods of time, muscles in the back and neck can become tense and contracted. A massage program based on deep tissue techniques helps to relieve chronic muscle tension by physically breaking down pain-causing adhesions. To break down muscle adhesions, direct pressure is placed across the grain of the muscles. This helps restore optimal muscle movement and, over time, improve a patient’s personal comfort level.
- Reduced Blood Pressure
High blood pressure is one of the most damaging effects of stress. It’s a common problem that’s diagnosed millions of times by doctors across the country each year. But few are aware that it can be relieved through deep tissue massage. A study conducted at the University of Maryland found patients who had undergone deep tissue message reduced their diastolic blood pressure an average 5.3 mm Hg, post treatment.
- Improved Mental Health
Deep Tissue Massage has been shown to help stimulate the body’s production of serotonin. Serotonin works within the brain to promote happiness and inner well-being. This means that, for those with chronic anxiety, a regular massage program based on deep tissue massage could ensure lasting relief from mental anguish.
