As opposed to Swedish or hot stone massages that are more meant to help you relax, the entire goal of a deep tissue massage is to deliver pain relief! It’s a great form of therapy that is aimed at reducing your hypertonic, or tight muscles. This is done by pinpointing the source and gently working to remove knots that can disrupt circulation and cause chronic pains and aches.
Deep tissue massage can help reduce tension in your neck, minimize lower back pain, and loosen up tight muscles in your arms and legs. It’s a great solution for those suffering sciatica, fibromyalgia, or muscle injuries, and can be just as effective as physical rehabilitation! While it may cause some discomfort, it’s shown to improve one’s range of mobility immediately after treatment!
