Ever think about getting a deep tissue massage but weren’t sure if it was worth the money?
We’re going to let you in on a little secret – it is!
People have been massaging sore muscles and injuries since the dawn of time. Long before hospitals and prescription pain medications were available, people have needed pain relief and healing.
Massaging sore areas of our body is an innate human instinct. It works just as well now as it has for thousands of years.
Why not go to someone who’s professionally trained and get the most out of it?
The Benefits of Deep Tissue Massage
Deep tissue massage has a long list of benefits for both body and mind. Take a look at our top five!
1. Decreased Muscle Pain and Stiffness
Deep tissue massage helps clear lactic acid in muscles. Lactic acid is produced when we work our muscles and is responsible for the pain related to sore muscles.
Additionally, our muscles have a tendency to tighten up and become stiff, both when we work them too hard or are too sedentary. Deep tissue massage helps loosen up tight muscle tissue, improving mobility and decreasing muscle tension.
This type of massage is especially appreciated by athletes whom it helps recover faster and perform pain-free.
2. Helps With Chronic Back Pain
Deep tissue massage helps combat chronic back pain on multiple levels, regardless of where your pain is coming from.
As mentioned above, deep tissue massage can help people suffering from muscle- tension, soreness, or injury.
Additionally, people with osteoarthritis of the spine and fibromyalgia can benefit from deep tissue massage. Just make sure the masseuse is fully qualified, such as those at New World Chiro, and fully aware of any conditions you have.
3. Lowers Stress and Anxiety
First, getting a deep tissue massage is incredibly relaxing, automatically helping lower stress and anxiety.
Human touch is incredibly tied to emotion, even though most of us don’t understand it. However, most of us do know that we enjoy it.
Aside from the physical feel goods, deep tissue massage also releases the feel goods on a chemical level, in the form of oxytocin and endorphins,
4. Lowers Blood Pressure
People with high blood pressure have seen decreases in both their systolic and diastolic pressures after receiving deep tissue massage.
Surprisingly, it can also help reduce stress hormones in the body!
5. Helps Reduce Arthritis Pain
You now know deep tissue massage helps with muscle soreness and stiffness, but it can also help with joints.
People with arthritis can really benefit from this type of massage as it improves mobility and decreases soreness and stiffness. Deep tissue massage is especially helpful with arthritis, rather than light-pressure massages.
