Deep Tissue Massage in London
While some massages relax and rejuvenate your body, deep tissue massage has therapeutic effects which are capable of healing your body and repairing muscles, tissues, and joints. The slow, firm strokes against the grain of the muscle may cause some discomfort because deep tissue massage impacts deep layers of muscle and connecting tissues known as fascia. In this article by Synergy Massage, we will take a look at some of the benefits of getting deep tissue massage in London. Read on for more information.
What is deep tissue massage?
Deep tissue massage in London is a specific type of massage that works on the deep layers of muscle and fascia in the body. A fascia is a band or sheet of connective tissue beneath the skin, consisting primarily of collagen. It attaches, stabilizes, encloses, and separates muscles and other internal organs. Unlike Swedish massage, which has a relaxing effect and uses lighter pressure, deep tissue massage is done using deep finger pressure with strokes that are firm and slow.
Benefits of deep tissue massage:
Can lower high blood pressure
Since deep tissue massage is designed to work on the deep layers of tissue in the body, it also has an impact on your blood flow. People who receive a deep tissue massage for 45 to 60 minutes have a significant dip in their blood pressure readings. For this reason, deep tissue massage therapy may be used as part of a holistic approach to treat hypertension.
Can decrease pain and discomfort
Deep tissue massage in London may be able to lessen pain. Deep tissue massage along with self stretching techniques can significantly decrease the pain that a patient feels in certain areas of their body. Deep tissue massage can be used for other conditions as well, such as fibromyalgia, tennis elbow or low-back pain, potentially providing some much-needed relief.
Can decrease stress levels
When we feel stressed out due to demands at work, home or both, deep tissue massage can help ease this stress in a healthy manner. This is important, as unresolved stress can do major damage to mental and physical health; an estimated 60 to 80 percent of doctor’s office visits are stress-related.
