Deep Tissue Massage
This particular type of massage therapy focuses on realigning muscles and connective tissues. It is particularly helpful for people that have chronic tightness and stiffness, ideal for sports massage sessions. When chronic muscle tension or injury is present adhesions are formed in the muscle tissues, tendons, and ligaments. Adhesions can inhibit circulation, limit movement, and cause pain. Deep tissue massage works to break down these adhesions and restore movement.
WHAT TO EXPECT FROM DEEP TISSUE MASSAGES
When deep tissue massage is paired with chiropractic care, the benefits are terrific. This approach allows your chiropractor and massage therapist to discuss your problems and symptoms so that they can both approach the issue. Your chiropractor can focus on the structural misalignments while your massage therapist can target the muscle adhesions. This allows for maximal rehabilitation to result from deep tissue massages and you can expect to feel relief from your pain within days.
