Our daily activities and lifestyles tend to put serious demand on our musculoskeletal system, which often leads to chronic patterns of tension and stress. Often, the pain that our clients experience will originate from the deep muscles that are primarily used for stabilization and posture. Workers who sit at a desk all day often experience the shortening and tightening of the hip flexors. Manual workers experience repetitive stress to the shoulder, and athletes such as tennis players experience repetitive stress to their elbows.
Deep tissue massage is one of the most versatile and effective techniques used by massage therapists to ease musculoskeletal stress and pain. Deep tissue massaging techniques are built on many different modalities of massage that aid in the relief of trigger points and work to eliminate muscular imbalance. To better assess and treat musculoskeletal pain, Mantra Wellness massage therapists will first seek to find the originating source of discomfort and pain in a deep tissue massage session.
Benefits of deep tissue massage include:
- Decreased muscular soreness.
- Increased mobility.
- Aid in improving posture.
- Release of chronic tension.
- Increased oxygenation and nutrition to muscles.
- Relief of tension.
- Help in addressing trigger points.
- Stretching of muscles and fascia.
- Help in addressing muscular imbalance.
