Deep Tissue Massage
Benefits of Deep Tissue Massage
Deep tissue massage is also known as structural integration, myofascial release, neuromuscular therapy, trigger point therapy, and other terms. This type of massage focuses on the attachment to the bone at either end of the muscle, as well as treating the muscle belly.
Deep Tissue Massage – Denver Center for Massage Therapy
Deep tissue massage is designed to release tension in the muscle and the connective tissue or fascia where an injury or heavy physical activity (perhaps in athletics) has caused pain. Deep tissue massage can be somewhat uncomfortable, causing what most recipients call a “good hurt” or a feeling of something being “worked out.”
Deep tissue massage is applied to both the superficial and deep layers of muscles, fascia, and other structures and is often quite intense as a result of the deliberate, focused work. As a result, the muscles that received deep tissue massage may ache for a day or two. Those who receive deep tissue massage say it is worth getting rid of the problem pain.
The Term “Deep Tissue” is Often Misused
Deep tissue massage does not mean the whole massage is done with sustained deep pressure. This is a misconception. Deep tissue massage is a modality of massage therapy that treats musculo-skeletal problems with techniques and strokes designed to relieve particular pains.
