This chronic pain is often accompanied by bands of painful, rigid tissue in the muscles, tendons, and ligaments. These are called adhesions and they can block circulation which can result in pain, inflammation, and restricted movement.
The objective of deep tissue massage is to break down the adhesions so that pain will be eliminated and normal movement will be restored. During a deep tissue massage the therapist will use some of the same strokes that are used in a classic massage but the movement will be slower and the pressure will be more intense.This pressure is applied to the grain of the muscles.
There are times during a deep tissue massage that the client may feel some discomfort. However, it should not actually hurt. If it becomes too intense,it’s important to tell the therapist. Sometimes there may also be of stiffness after the deep tissue massage; this is normal and should go away within about a day.
The benefits of deep tissue massage include increased mobility, and relief from chronic pain associated with fibromyalgia, osteoarthritis, and strain injuries such as carpal tunnel syndrome.
