Deep Tissue Massage
What Can Deep Tissue Massage Do for You?
Many people get deep tissue massage for relaxation. Since it releases muscle tension, it is very good at providing this effect. However, this isn't the only thing this type of massage can do. It is also used to break up scar tissue, increase joint mobility, reduce chronic pain, and temporarily lower blood pressure.
Deep tissue massage affects more than the muscles. It also helps to loosen up tendons and works the fascia. The fascia are the layers of connective tissue that surround muscles, bones, joints, and other tissues that need to be able to move against each other.
Of course, if you just want to relax, there's nothing wrong with that. You'll simply get the bonus of the other benefits as well. This makes it so that deep tissue massage has more bang for your buck than many other relaxing activities.
