Deep Tissue Massage in Fenton, MO: Deep tissue massage focuses on realigning the deeper layers of your connective muscle tissue. The goal of deep tissue massage is to release chronic patterns of tension throughout your body by applying slow strokes and deep finger pressure to tense areas. This is accomplished by either going across the fibers of the muscles, fascia or tendons. Deep tissue massage is particularly helpful at releasing tension in tight and contracted areas such as low back pain/stiffness, stiff necks and sore shoulders.
Deep tissue goes far beyond being a “hard massage”. In contrast to only relaxing muscles, the specific lengthening of the muscles, tendons and fascia offers many additional benefits such as increased joint movement, better posture, quicker injury recovery and an overall increase in feelings of well-being.
Deep Tissue Massage has Many Health Benefits and is Used Often to Treat:
- Chronic Pain
- Injury Recovery
- Repetitive Strains
- Limited Mobility
- Postural Problems
- Muscle Tension or Spasms
- Osteoarthritis Pain
How Deep Tissue Massage Helps You
Deep tissue utilizes many of the same techniques as a more classic massage. The difference being that the pressure will be more generally intense and concentrated on areas of tension and pain. While the strokes are the same, the movement is slower and deeper.
Deep tissue has been found to greatly improve the function of muscle and range of motion. Additionally, deep tissue massage works great at breaking up scar tissue and decreasing pain. It is thought that when muscles are tensed, they block oxygen and nutrients, leading to inflammation that builds up toxins in the muscle tissue. Deep tissue massage can help to loosen your muscle tissues thereby releasing toxins from muscles in order to get blood and oxygen circulating properly.
