Deep Tissue Massage – Who Can Benefit?
Similar to a Swedish massage but with added ‘oomph’ the deep tissue massage is a firm favourite of those who want an effective stress reliever and muscle relaxer. Deeper pressure is used to relieve chronic muscle tension focusing on the deepest layers of muscle tissue such as tendons.
Who can benefit most from Deep Tissue Massage?
While the practice is suitable for most (excluding pregnant women), there are certain health benefits that are particularly suited to the following:
Athletes and Fitness Fans.
A firm favourite with athletes and fitness fans for improvement movement, especially in those who have experienced a muscle related injury.
Those with muscle related problems and pain.
As an example, those suffering from fibromyalgia, tennis elbow or low-back pain, the deep tissue massage offers some much-needed pain relief.
Busy workers or those experiencing stress.
Deep tissue massage is an excellent stress reliever, focusing on the natural build-up of tension in the muscles which is a common physical manifestation of stress. Unresolved stress can cause major mental and physical damage so ensuring regular trips to ease muscle stress can save some more serious health complaints in later life.
Those with high blood pressure and raised heart rate.
According to Dr. Hinz, deep tissue massage is proven to lower blood pressure and heart rate. A study monitoring blood pressure and heart rate before and after a 45-60 minute deep tissue massage treatment showed lower systolic and diastolic pressure, as well as heart rates around 10 beats less per minute. – 2008 in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine
