Deep Tissue Massage (process and benefits)

Deep Tissue Massage (process and benefits)

If you’re looking to recover from those sore, aching muscles after Carnival, a Deep tissue massage could be just what you need.   This massage offers both physical and psychological benefits, as it can relieve muscle pain and stiffness, while relaxing the body and mind.

The Deep tissue massage is a technique mainly used to treat musculo-skeletal issues, such as strains and sports injuries.  It involves sustained pressure using slow, deep strokes to target the inner layers of your muscles and connective tissues.   This helps to break up scar tissue that usually occurs after an injury and reduce tension.  It may also promote faster healing, by increasing blood flow and reducing inflammation.

Some lingering soreness usually occurs for a few days following a deep tissue massage.  However, you can use a heating pad or a cold pack wrapped in a towel, for relief.

The deep tissue massage is best suited for people who engage in highly physical activities, such as athletes, or those who have an injury or chronic pain.   It uses varying amounts of intense pressure, so you should inform the massage therapist about your problem areas, before the service begins.
