Deep tissue massage is a western form of massaging technique. It is an intense massage treatment which focuses on deep conditioning of the muscles. Pain can be expected from the deep-tissue massage as it focuses on reliving the soreness and tightness in a muscle. It is better suited for individuals who like it a bit rough and to the uninformed this massage treatment can leave the individual with some level of soreness and pain during the process and after the massage treatment ends.
Deep tissue massage is used for bringing relive to the knots, chronic pain and stiffness in your muscles. With this specific massage treatment one can expect all the massage tightness and postural rigidity to blow off. It is as if a magician has taken off all of your pain and given you a new lease of a painless life. All of that pain and numbness in the contracted areas can be bid adieu. In this type of massage the massage therapist applies deep pressure and works on your body in strokes and plays on the friction caused by your body. Deep pressure is used on those stubborn and callous knots. If not broken by massage, they can lead to blockages and cause the range of motion to be stunted. These knots are basically deeply distress tissues of the body which cause ache and chronic pain while working or bending. All of our tension and worry is settled in these knots.
Hence, with the application, the stripping method and friction technique, the massage therapist will basically go in against the muscles and assist in its realignment to its former position and the knots to be kinked out. Whilst using the stripping method the massage therapist will put heavy pressure along the muscle fibres. There is use of elbows, hands and sometimes even feet while the massage therapist works his or her magic on you. There may not be any pain, but moments of mild discomfort. It will occur only when knots and stiff joints and muscles will be worked up. With constant pressure heavy strokes on the body, the muscles with pain eventually let go of the stress and become flexible. This is how deep-tissue massage helps in dealing the muscle pain.
